COVID-19 guidelines at Choosing Keeping 

The whole team at Choosing Keeping is excited to welcome you back to our shop at 21 Tower Street. 

Following on from the government lifting restrictions on Monday 19th July, we are still requiring staff and customers to wear masks in store unless exempt. 

Please make note of our current opening hours which are 11:30am - 5:30pm Tuesday to Sunday; we remain closed on Monday. We kindly ask that, ahead of your visit, you make note of the following policies devised to reduce risk of transmission and provide a safe environment for both staff and customers. 

We have complied with the government guidelines on managing the risk of COVID-19 and have carried out a risk assessment which has been shared with, and will be complied by, all members of staff. A cleaning, hand washing and hygiene policy has also been established in line with government guidance. 

Please note that the below policies are at our discretion and are subject to change without further notice - any changes will be immediately updated on this page.  

Prepare ahead of time

- We encourage you to prepare your visit by browsing our website ahead of time, where you can easily view our full product range at your leisure.

- If you have any questions feel free to e-mail us at or by calling us at 020 7613 3842 before arriving to the shop and we can assist you and get any products ready ahead of time.
