Beaverbrooks jewellers in Exeter and Swindon announces Boxing Day closure

Beaverbrooks Christmas jewellery collection

Beaverbrooks jewellers, who have a store in Exeter's Princesshay Centre in Devon and also in Swindon, Wiltshire, has announced that it will be closed this Boxing Day for the 103rd year. Managing Director of the family-owned jeweller, Anna Blackburn, said: "In Beaverbrooks' 103-year history we have never opened on Boxing Day, to give our amazing colleagues more time to spend with their families and thank them for their hard work throughout the year."

She continues, "As a business run on strong family values this is something that has always been incredibly important to us, and this year our 70 stores will remain closed on the date once again, to allow our people to enjoy well-earned time with their loved ones after the busy Christmas period."

She also tells us, "We know it is a challenging time for many people and to support our colleagues, as well as giving them more time to spend with family over the festive season, we will continue our tradition of an extra week's salary in December for all colleagues to show our appreciation for their hard work. This comes in addition to an investment of £500,000 in cost-of-living payments made in October to all colleagues (£500 one-off payment per colleague), providing further financial support in line with increasing costs. Rising costs have been a key consideration for all our business decisions this year and we have made sure to put our teams across the UK at the heart of them. For instance, we have just created a breakfast club for office colleagues to come and get a healthy nutritious breakfast every day on us. we have guaranteed salary increases for all Beaverbrook's colleagues year-on-year, even during the pandemic, and based on our record-breaking 2021/22 financial success, we paid our biggest-ever bonuses to store colleagues. We also introduced significant increases in profit bonuses for office teams and all store management to reward the hard work of all colleagues across the past few challenging years. Closing on Boxing Day is something we know our colleagues value greatly, and we feel passionate about continuing this tradition, and hopefully inspiring other businesses to follow in our footsteps."
