The Soap Shop is now open
Thu 20 Aug 2020

Now that life is returning to some sort of "normality" The Soap Shop here in Wells is now open. Sadly, we are going to ask you to observe some 'rules'...

1) Because the shop is tiny, we can only allow one person in at once (two if they are clearly a couple). Others will be asked to wait outside until the previous customer has exited the shop.

2) It sounds daft in a shop full of soap, but there will be hand sanitiser available by the door and we ask that you use it, please.

3) Although our products are sold on their wonderful scents, we cannot allow you to pick up and sniff the bars or the bottles. Sorry, but you can understand why not... I'm afraid that for now, the rule is "if you touch it, you must buy it".

4) For the moment, we are asking that children do not come into the shop - it's too small and children can't always restrain themselves from touching.

I know it's all a pain, but our first priority is to keep you and Sue, my shop person, safe. We have gloves and masks available if you need them, and we have installed a large screen to avoid the risk from coughing and spluttering!

We are really looking forward to welcoming you to the shop...

COVID-19 restrictions
Sun 19 Apr 2020

The UK government has introduced restrictions to slow the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) to help ease the pressure on medical services and save lives. We have shut our shop and are running a reduced service. Most of our soap bars are readily available but at present we have limited stocks of our other products. 

Orders may take longer than usual to be sent out so please be patient. Also, we send our parcels by Royal Mail so you will need to be in or to have a safe place for the postman to leave them.

Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe and keep well.

We're (almost) closed due to COVID-19 restrictions
Mon 23 Mar 2020

The UK government has introduced restrictions to slow the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) to help ease the pressure on medical services and save lives. We have shut our shop and sent our staff home and we can't supply many of our usual products, including bottled items, creams and gift baskets.

For the present though we do have stock of most of our soap bars and are operating a reduced on-line service. Orders will take longer than usual to be sent out so please be patient. Also, we send our parcels by Royal Mail so you need to be in or to have a safe place for the postman to leave them.

Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe and keep well.

COVID-19 and The Natural Soap Company
Tue 17 Mar 2020

It's all rather concerning, isn't it?

Please be assured that, as of today's date, none of us (there are only five people who work here in total) at either the soap factory or at the Soap Shop on Wells Quay have any symptoms of the coronavirus. We are operating a policy of increased personal hygiene and we are almost a closed site at the factory - very few people come in and out on a daily basis and those that do (mainly delivery drivers) are being asked to stay outside and leave parcels there so that we can take them in ourselves. Oddly enough, we have quite a lot of soap with which to wash our hands!

At the Soap Shop, Sue is staying open until she can't. We have removed all testers etc from the counter and are asking people with any sort of cough or sneeze to please not come in - it's a tiny shop and I want Sue to stay healthy for as long as possible.

So, we are operating as normal, for now. We hope that all our customers, their families and friends, can keep away from this horrid thing and stay well. 

If you want any soap, you know where to come...

'Normal' service resumes at The Soap Shop
Wed 26 Feb, 2020

Or what passes for normal, anyway! 

The Soap Shop on Wells quay is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 4pm. We offer personal service, a range of soaps and toiletries made here in Wells next the Sea, gifts to suit all pockets and a whole raft of scented candles. We look forward to seeing you!

We're off on our summer hols!
Fri 26 Jul 2019

We've all worked hard for months so we think we deserve a short break! Therefore The Natural Soap Company will be closed from Monday 5 August to Friday 9 August inclusive. What passes for normal service (!) will be resumed on Monday 12 August. The website will continue to accept orders over this period, but please understand that there will inevitably be a bit of a delay in getting your order out to you. I hope you understand.

Please note that the Soap Shop on Wells quay will remain open as usual - 11am to 4pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Have a great summer, one and all!

Sara

Come and see us at The Soap Shop!
Wed 27 Mar 2019

Our little shop on Wells quay – called, with a sad lack of imagination, but much accuracy, The Soap Shop – is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 4pm. We'd love to see you if you are in Wells - you'll find us underneath the gantry that goes across the road at the east end of the quay. There is no parking near the shop, but plenty in the town and a stroll along the quay is part of why people come to Wells, so detouring to the Soap Shop is just a bit of icing on the cake (or bubbles on the bar!)

Come and see Sue, my endlessly cheerful shop manager, who is happy to help with your purchases and will make up gift baskets and other little gift items for you at no extra charge. All our soaps and bottle products are on sale, plus rubber ducks, towels, soap dishes, hand creams, foot creams, balms, shaving oils, candles and more.

See you soon, we hope!

The Soap Shop will be closed from 22 December to 1 February
Sunday 15th December 2019

Please note that the Soap Shop will be closed from Sunday 22nd December, all through the rest of December and January, until we reopen on Saturday 1st February 2020.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. You are of course always welcome to order at any time from our website. We'll get your items in the post to you as promptly as we can...
