CORONA & the Goblin
SUPPLY: We aren’t experiencing any supply issues with our main suppliers - the shop is full of your favourite games.
EVENTS: As restrictions start to ease we are introducing a few events back to the program for limited numbers - bookings are essential so check the events page for more info
AROUND THE STORE: The retail half of the shop is still open - however, please stay home if you are feeling any of these symptoms (and see your doctor asap): fever, a cough, sore throat, fatigue, shortness of breath. Please also remember social distancing when shopping in the store.
The Goblin has a toilet and sink with hand soap attached to the shop where you are encouraged to wash your hands – just ask us for the key. Please don’t touch your mouth, nose or eyes with your bare/unwashed hands. If you need to cough or sneeze, please do so into a tissue or flexed elbow. Please dispose of used tissues in the bin provided.
OUR CUSTOMERS: Because antibiotics are not effective against viruses, and there is no vaccine for COVID-19, it is especially important to look after your immune system by minimising stress (play lots of games) and eat nutritious food to bolster your body’s natural defence against infection! Seeking professional advice is always recommended.
UPDATES: We’ll update our customers on any changes as advised by State and Federal Government - check this section on our website or head to our Facebook page.
Despite what is happening in the world, we still stock a wide range of excellent games and hobby supplies in a lovely air conditioned store for your enjoyment and convenience – we look forward to seeing you soon!
