Horkans: How to Shop with us.

Important Update 4th January 2022

We very much appreciate you making Horkans your choice for your gardening needs and also supporting a local 100% Irish-owned family run business.

Covid has put huge pressures both professionally and personally on every citizen in the country over the past two years and now we are in the middle of a new superwave with Omicron.

The last few weeks have put large pressures on our instore teams that have managed so well through these unprecedented times to keep both themselves and you our customers safe when shopping with us. I am immensely proud of each and everyone of them but also you - our customers that have followed all our guidelines and policies to maintain safety.

A level of agility is required from us as a business over the coming weeks to maintain our services to you. Based on staff availability we may have to reduce the hours our centres are open to the public. We may not always be able to do this with efficient notice through our website and social media platforms.

Take comfort that we will do all in our power to maintain our services but if you are traveling a distance to visit one of our centres please phone ahead and confirm they are not on reduced hours. Worst case scenario we will trade 12 - 6pm so you should be safe enough between these hours, but there may be the odd day we simply cannot open to our loyal customers.
