In the light of the complex and ever evolving challenges created by the Coronavirus COVID-19, I would like to reassure you that we are following the recommendations given by the British Government and the global health organisations.

Customer Visits, Collections and Deliveries

Our family run business is built on delivering exceptional service and whilst we are continuing to run our business as normal for the time being, our priority is protecting the health of our employees and their families as well as our customers and suppliers that visit our site. We have marked 2 metre separation boxes across the store to help us all keep our distance, please respect this boundary.

We are now offering deliveries to support those who cannot leave their home Please email us on

We are also offering order and collection at counter and kerbside. Please email us on

As the situation evolves, we are taking great care to monitor the changes and we will have to adjust to suit those changes as advised by the Government.

We understand that you rely on us and in turn we rely of our suppliers providing us with goods and materials to enable us to continue to serve you. Rest assured that we will do the best we can.

If that supply chain falters in any way then we will have to reconsider our decision to stay open for business. However, we hope to continue via our usual telephone and email contact.

Stay Safe,
Kind Regards,
Abdul and The al:Amin Team

Editor’s notes:

It’s no less than what we might well have expected from Abdul and the team, who are very community-minded and huge supporters of Mill Road in obvious and not-so-obvious, behind-the-scenes, ways.

A number of adjustments have been made to the shop including:

  • a large open area near the entrance/exit;
  • floor markings at 2m distances
  • clear perspex screens extending to ceiling height
    • at the butchery counter
    • at the cooked food counter
    • at the tills

Do you run a business along Mill Road? Would you like to tell us how you’re serving customers during the Covid-19 lockdown, or how you’re preparing for the future? Email us on We’re here to unite all of Mill Road’s ‘Community of Communities’.

Perhaps you’re a customer, and would like to tell us about the great service you’re receiving, or how much you’re missing a favourite café, pub or shop. Email us on
