Covid-19: A quick update from Boden


I just wanted to check in and see how you’re all doing and give you a little update on how we’re navigating the new normal. I hope you’re able to safely connect with friends, family and colleagues and that you can remain safe, secure and hopeful. Hang in there.

How are you looking after your workers?

Our London and Boston staff are now flexi-working between home and carefully capacity-controlled days in the offices. Our shops are opening again but with the most considered social-distancing measures in place — such as closed dressing rooms and cashless payments.

In line with the UK/US government and World Health Organisation guidelines, our warehouse teams in Leicester and Pennsylvania are now working under careful new protocols. We have introduced extra, thorough cleaning between shifts with a longer changeover gap between them. We have also changed shift patterns, so only a third of the team is on-site at any time to ensure there is plenty of space for social distancing.

How can I get in touch?

If you can’t see your answer in our general FAQs, you can contact our friendly Customer Service team. Email them (, call them (0330 3330000, Monday to Friday 9am to 7pm GMT, or Saturday to Sunday 10am to 6pm GMT) or use the live chat option on our website. We’re working our way through lots of queries so please be patient if it takes longer than usual for us to reply – we’ll come back to you as soon as possible.

How are you making deliveries safe?

The current advice is that it is safe to receive parcels, although we do recommend washing your hands after handling one. Our carriers suggest you choose a safe place for your parcel to be delivered and you can request a ‘contact-free’ delivery by popping this in the ‘other instructions’ box of checkout or through your tracking information.

Are you still delivering?

We are still sending out spotty parcels of joy but these may sometimes take longer than usual to reach you. Getting items in stock is proving tricky in these times, so please bear with us while we work closely with our suppliers to get your orders to you as quickly as possible.

What happens if I’ve requested an exchange?

We’re temporarily unable to process exchanges. If you have requested one, we will process it as a return and refund it, then send you an email when it’s sorted. If you’d like to place a new order for the item you wanted to exchange, please see our exchanges help section

Are all your products still available?

Things are still a little unpredictable at the moment and we’re working hard with our suppliers to help them keep safety as their top priority. While we know stock is coming, we don’t always know exactly when, which is why you’ll find some of our styles on pre-order. Rest assured, we’ll get them to you as soon as they’re available.

How are you looking after your suppliers?

While we have had to reduce some orders, we are maintaining responsibility for our commitments and will not be changing payment terms or asking our suppliers for discounts. You can find more in-depth information here.

What’s your returns policy?

As always, we offer a no-quibble 3-month returns policy. When returning something, make sure you get a receipt. It may take a little longer for us to receive and process your return, so please be patient if you haven’t heard from us – we’ll pop you an email as soon as it’s sorted.

To the NHS with love from Boden

We’ve partnered with Helpforce, a big-hearted charity who coordinate initiatives to make the lives of NHS staff and patients better. So far, we’ve…

Delivered £1,000,000 worth of clothing to 20 NHS trusts across the UK.

Started making 10,000 new pairs of PJs (with the help of our generous suppliers) to try to make night time and rest time a bit brighter for staff and patients.

But it’s not just us showing support, you lovely folk have donated £10,000 to Helpforce since our partnership began. Head to their site to hear more about their brilliant work.
