Store Closure

This is not goodbye, but “see you soon”!


The health and safety of Woods Furniture customers and staff is of the utmost importance and the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) has made us only more attuned to this.

While there have been no reported cases at Woods Furniture, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, both of our stores in Dorchester will be TEMPORARILY closed from 5.30pm today (23.03.2020). This is a temporary and precautionary measure until such time as government make reassurances that retail stores can resume operating and maintain safe environments.

We know you will appreciate that this is a tough decision for Woods Furniture to make, but these are extraordinary times. We are proud to have never had to shut our doors in our near 150 year history, but we all feel this is the right decision for our customers, staff and community.

We will of course ensure that delivery of all outstanding store orders (in addition to all online orders, which will continue to trade normally), continue unhindered.

During our time of temporary closure, we will have a team of colleagues working from home. For customers who have urgent queries, these colleagues will respond to emails sent to sales@woods-furniture.co.uk . We will also be manning our onsite chat service during normal office hours. Please bear in mind that there may be some small delay in response and these colleagues will have limitations in their ability to perform all of Woods Furniture’s usual operational functions.


Please be assured that we are closely monitoring all information provided by Public Health England and the government and shall look forward to reopening our doors again, as soon as we are able.

We value the trust and loyalty you place in Woods Furniture, and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Our thoughts at this time are with all those affected by Covid-19 and our gratitude goes to the people who are working tirelessly to care for them.

Please check our website and follow our social media pages on Facebook & Instagram for future updates.

We look forward to opening our stores once again.
Please stay safe. We wish you well.

From all at Woods Furniture.
