Covid-19 “Coronavirus” – Latest Updates


Welcome to the central point to keep up-to-date with how Bury Shopmobility has been affected by the Covid-19 “Coronavirus” pandemic. We are not immune to its widespread impact on society and business. However, we are well placed with years of prudent financial management with strong reserves to continue serving the people of Bury and beyond for years to come.

Things will change in the short term as usage drops to protect the charity from excessive spend and our members from unnecessary potential exposure to the virus as we serve the most vulnerable in our community.

January 2021: We are closed …. again! 

Due to Bury being moved into Tier 4, this requires us to close our doors once again. This will remain the case for the foreseeable future until the situation materially changes.

29th June 2020: ***WE ARE REOPENING!***

We are pleased to announce that we will be reopening on 6th July. In order to keep staff and customers safe, we have made a few changes to how we operate. We are requesting that all customers ring up to book a scooter so that we can inform you of our social distancing rules.

As we have to complete a risk assessment whilst open, we are asking you to do the following:

1. Must wear a mask whilst in Shopmobility.
2. Please bring the correct money with you, as we are unable to provide you with change.
3. We are hoping to keep our normal opening times, but please ring to check before you leave home.

We are looking forward to reopening and welcoming all our customers back into Shopmobility.


21st March 2020:  It is with deep regret that as of MONDAY 23RD MARCH, we will be *closed* until further notice. Rest assured we will be in contact with members as soon as this situation is resolved. We will be updating all our social media channels and website at regular intervals.

Thank you to all our members. Don Reeve, Chairman.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Wash your hands.

The team @ Bury Shopmobility
