COVID-19 Update



  Classified as an essential retailer, Toolstation has been open for business across the UK throughout the pandemic, supporting both the trade and DIY enthusiasts with tools and more. The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and customers remain our number one priority so we will continue to maintain all of our Covid secure procedures. We take every precaution to reduce the risk of infection and we appreciate every effort you make to help us keep everyone safe.   So if you’re planning to visit one of our branches for Click & Collect or to shop for something in-store, please follow the guidelines below.   Check our branch locator for your nearest branch.  

Shopping safely in store


Order Using Click & Collect

Our speedy 5 min Click and Collect service remains one of the safest ways to buy from us and minimises your time in store. Place your order at toolstation.com 7 days a week, and visit the store once your collection confirmation is received by email or text message.   image image Your items will be held at your selected Toolstation branch for 14 days, after which point your order will be put back to stock and refunded automatically.

Order In-Store

You can still order what you need at the counter but wherever possible please check if stock of what you need is available at your local branch first. You can do this online by visiting the product page and clicking ‘check stock in your local branch’. If this isn’t possible, we’ll also have catalogues in-store, should you need one.   Branches are open between 7am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 7am – 7pm Saturday and 9-4pm Sunday. The following stores are excluded from our standard opening hours.  
Store Opening Hours Mon-Sat Opening Hours Sun


To reduce the risk of infection we would recommend using contactless card payment but you can also pay in cash at the branch, if you prefer.

For your safety

All our branches have social distancing markers, hand sanitisers, protective screens on our counters and we regularly deep clean all of our stores.

It is a legal requirement to wear a face covering in our branches

To help protect our colleagues and customers we would ask you to wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth when you shop in our branches unless you are exempt.

Shop alone

If possible we would ask you to shop alone to reduce congestion in our branches.

Restricted numbers

Occasionally, we may reach our limit of the number of people in our branches. If this happens we will operate a one-in, one-out system with queuing outside.
