We are delighted that both stores have now re-opened. You can be assured of the same friendly welcome that you've always had but you might find some changes to our layout and the way we serve you, designed to keep both you and us as safe as possible. Please bear with us and please don't be offended if we ask you to behave in a way you're not used to when you come to Out & About.


If you know what you want, you might find it useful to phone us first to check we have the item in stock. We can even have it ready and waiting for you at the till when you arrive- great for stocking up on regular purchases like care products or fuel. For time-consuming purchases like footwear and Páramo you may want to phone to book a no-obligation appointment. That way we know we can make time for you and you won't face a long wait if we're busy.

Enhanced cleaning is taking place of contact surfaces throughout the stores. We will be cleaning our hands between each customer. We would ask that you also browse with clean hands and we have hand sanitiser available for use at clearly marked points close to the door, if you need it. Please moderate how much you handle the stock before you choose a purchase.


The Scottish government has made it mandatory to wear face coverings in shops from the 9th July. The English government has made it mandatory to wear face coverings in shops from 24th July. Your early co-operation in this would be really helpful.


We will be moderating the number of customers we allow in store to ensure that social distancing is maintained. The acceptable distance is subject to guidance from the governments in both countries we work in but we are currently operating to 2m. If you have to wait outside please do not block the passage of pedestrians and maintain social distancing on the pavement too.


We accept both cash and card payments but please consider using contactless or chip & pin payment methods wherever possible to minimise contact during the transaction. We have screens installed at our till points.
