Folkster - something folkin' different!

RE-OPENING NEWS!
We wanted to update you on the re-opening of our new-layout stores. :DOur plan remains to open as safely as possible - which means all bridesmaid/debs/formal styles will be shopped by pre-booked appointment only for the foreseeable future (you can book directly on folkster.com!) <3

BUT! We have taken the last few weeks to reconfigure our stores for WALK-IN too! We have created a walk-in casual/wedding guest/occasion/ gift and home store in the FRONT of our two shops , which is non-appointment :) The back rooms in both will remain closed for appointment only :)

This means more choice in the main stores for non-formal-buying customers, and more privacy and one-on-one styling for our appointment customers - yay! It also, and most importantly means we can control the social distancing and sanitation guidelines for the safety of our team and community :) 
.
Below is the the breakdown of walk-in plans by store, along with the safety measures required to get to see you all safely again this week in Dublin and next week in Kilkenny! :D Please, please, please do share this with anyone who might be interested - we would really appreciate that! 

TEMPLE BAR, DUBLIN : 
WALK-INS & APPOINTMENTS : 
We are excited to re-open the front of our Temple Bar store from *** Thursday July 2nd**** for walk-ins to shop our casual wear, dressy daytime and gift/homewares. :) 
For Bridesmaids, Formal and Black Tie - it will be by pre-booked appointment only - which will take place in the back room which has a separate entrance and will be closed to the general public during appointments. We also have a second appointment only space upstairs too! You can book online on folkster.com or give us a call - we're always happy to help!
FITTING ROOMS : 
Due to covid-19 We will initially not be operating fitting rooms in the walk-in store. We will have fitting rooms in the private pre-booked appointments as we have allowed time to sanitise them after each use. 
MAX CUSTOMERS: 
Walk-in: The current social distancing plan requires that the maximum amount of customers permitted in the walk-in section of Temple Bar is 6 and we will then operate a one-in, one-out way. 
Appointment: The maximum amount permitted in the appointment space is (July 2nd-19th) up to 4 people max per appointment/ (July 20th onwards) 6 people per appointment.
PPE/FACE MASKS :
For the protection of our team and community, we kindly ask you to please wear face masks when shopping with us. We will have hand sanitiser stations at the entrance of the store and we require all team and customers to use it upon entry. Thank you so much!

KILKENNY: 
WALK-INS & APPOINTMENTS : 
We are thrilled to re-open the front of our Kilkenny store on ***Thursday 9th of July*** for walk-ins to shop our casual wear, dressy daytime and gift/homewares. If we can re-open sooner, we will, but we want to make sure we get it perfect before opening :) 
**For Bridesmaids, Formal and Black Tie** - it will be by pre-booked appointment only - which will take place in the back room which will be closed to the general public during appointments.

BRIDAL : 
Bridal is reopened for appointments now which you can book on folkster.com! The team are so excited to see you all. As Folkster Bridal is a smaller space, there is currently a maximum capacity of the bride plus one guest per appointment per COVID-19 guidelines. Face masks are kindly requested to be worn, and we have a hand sanitisation station upon entry. We are also cleaning each space after each appointment. :)
