Rules and recommendations


For details on how stores work, please see page Retail


For details on the operation of services and repairs, please see page Repair shops and after-sale services.


Craftsmen can currently do their job both in their workshop and in clients' households.

It is vital to retain general hygiene recommendations. During the visit of craftsmen, regular hand washing and social distancing are recommended.

If your signature is needed, use your own pen ideally. A cashless form of payment is recommended as well.  

If a household member is in self-isolation, please postpone the craftsman visit. In case of accidents requiring immediate repair, it is necessary to inform the craftsman about such household members. The self-isolated individual has to avoid any contact with the craftsman.
