RED MILLS taking action

500ml bottles of hand sanitizer available now at Red Mills, Cillin Hill

Connolly’s RED MILLS are one of the businesses who were first to take proactive action in light of the restrictions announced by Leo Varadkar last week. All non-essential staff at their premises at Cillin Hill began remote working a week ago. The team are now supporting a massive uplift in online orders by offering live webchat to assist shoppers with their online ordering of pet food, equestrian essentials and country essentials.

Speaking about the product, Store Manager William Connolly said:

“As a business we want to do all in our power to help our customers and the general public during this difficult time. Our store here in Cillin Hill remains open so that our farming customers can collect the supplies they need to keep their animals fed and in good health. The rest of our store has been cordoned off in line with the social distancing recommendations laid out by the CMO and HSE.

Our café is closed but we are providing free coffee and tea for healthcare personnel. We are also providing a pet food delivery service for our elderly customers who are self-isolating at this time - to avail of this they just need to phone the store on 056 4449010."

Uniquely, the RED MILLS owned Foran Healthcare facility located in Purcellsinch, has now ramped up its’ production of a 70% alcohol hand sanitizer with aloe, in respond to a public demand for hand sanitizing products. Available in 500ml units from the Cillin Hill store and online at these are limited to a max of 2 units per customer.

We would advise members of the public to avail of our click and collect service online at where they can order and pay in advance and then collect in store, allowing us to limit social interactions as much as we possibly can. If you need help using the site, we have our staff who are working from home available to webchat with our customers.”
