Covid-19 Stores Update

Dear Shoal,

You will no doubt be aware that the UK Government has announced a new national lockdown. As a result all of our stores are closed for the duration of the lockdown.

We certainly hope this lockdown does its intended job of getting the COVID-19 virus under control, so that we can get our teams safely back to doing what they love the most, welcoming and looking after the Weird Fish Shoal.

We look forward to catching up on all your lockdown tales as soon as the whistle blows and it’s safe to fling open the doors once more.

In the meantime, please do keep in touch through our social media channels, where we can look forward to sharing anything that keeps us all entertained and in a positive mood.

Our online store remains very much open 24/7 at, hopefully timed to chime with the chilly winter weather. We have also just launched our latest Bamboo active range, to help keep you keep fit and fabulous.

Our new styles and re-imagined classics should help brighten up those days at home, or keep you toasty on your winter walks.

Our free returns policy will remain extended to 6 months!

We will keep monitoring the situation and continue to follow advice from the government and world health organisation, and as soon as we are given the all clear, we look forward to welcoming you back with open arms!

Keep well and stay safe,

John Stockton

Dear Shoal,

We are excited to announce our return to Weird Fish stores on April 12th, 2021 after the government announced that non-essential retail could reopen*. Our stores have several measures in place to ensure that you can enjoy your time in store, feel safe and happy while you shop!

  • Our staff will have access to facemasks and gloves, keeping them and you safe!
  • Our stores will have screens fitted to the cash desks to provide additional protection.
  • There will be a limited number of customers allowed in store at any one time to be able to effectively facilitate the 2 metres social distancing guidance.
  • We are providing additional hand sanitiser cleaning stations at the front of our stores .
  • We have implemented more frequent cleaning practices at key touch points such as door handles and stair rails

We are looking forward to seeing all our customers again in their local store, remember, you can always shop online, 24/7 at
