CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEK'S RACK
WE'RE COMING BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Destination Venus will re-open at 1pm on Saturday, 11th July. We will be asking customers to remain at least 2m away from anyone they don't live with, and we will be limited to two customers at any one time, so we might have to ask you to queue outside. (Regulars will know that this is unlikely to happen - we rarely have more than two of you in at once...)
We will be accepting cash, but contactless card payments are preferred.
For the time being we will be open 1pm - 5.30pm on Saturdays and 4pm - 6pm on Wednesdays. These opening hours are tied to the opening of the Cinema and we hope to increase them in due course.
In the meantime free deliveries in Harrogate and Knaresborough will continue.
It's going to feel a little strange, but it's going to be good to be back!
THE NAKED ATTRACTION OF COSPLAY
