The Robberg Store open during lockdown

by | Mar 25, 2020 | News

The Robberg Store will be open as usual for business during the entire 21-day COVID-19 lockdown period from Friday 27th March to Thursday 16th April.

As an essential food provider we are permitted by law to stay open to provide food to the public and we are committed to providing the quality and service you have come to expect from us.


Our business hours during COVID-19 lockdown are:


  • Monday – Friday: OPEN from 8am to 3pm
  • Saturday: OPEN from 8am to 12pm
  • Sunday: CLOSED




  • For the protection of both our customers and our staff we have placed hand sanitizers at the entrance to the store and customers are requested to sanitize before entering.
  • Customers are expected to wear face masks that cover the mouth and nose whilst shopping as stipulated in the Government’s guidelines.
  • We also request that customers adhere to the 1.5m safe distance guideline. Stay at least 1.5m away from other shoppers while shopping, and keep 1.5m away from the cashier at checkout.
  • For the safety of our staff we have rented a vehicle to transport our shop assistants from their homes to work and back again. These staff members will be required to adhere to all the prescribed safety precautions while in the vehicle.




Please note that no outlet is permitted to sell alcohol during the entire 21-day lockdown period. We will therefore be closing the wine section of the store. The last day on which to buy wine from the store is Thursday 26th March. Thereafter, no wine may be sold for the entire 21-day lockdown. Wine sales will resume on Friday 17th April if permission is given by government.


Follow the rules:


During these difficult times we ask that customers exercise self-discipline, patience and understanding towards staff and other customers whilst in the store.

We are all in this together and it is our hope that, as a town and as a nation, we can all focus on a common goal – to overcome this pandemic so that we can resume our normal lives as soon as possible.

Thank you,
The Robberg Fine Foods Team
