Before the shops close on Wednesday due to the corona pandemic, the supplier A. W. Niemeyer extended opening hours. All branches in Germany will be open tomorrow, December 15th, contrary to the usual winter opening hours from 10:00 to 19:00. There is also a 10 percent discount on all articles. Nautical charts and books are excluded because of the fixed prices.
A full shop and long queues at the cash register in the run-up to Christmas are usually happy for the retailers, but the lockdown comes into effect in order to minimize contacts and thus the number of infections. That is why you can also shop and save online. From December 15th to January 10th, the shipping costs are omitted from an order value of 75 euros. The code FREI75 must be entered for this. Only standard shipping within Germany will be waived.
At Compass, normal opening times apply in the branches in Hamburg and Ascheberg on the day before the lockdown. Both shops are open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The SVB shop in Bremen is also open normally, you can still shop here on December 15th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The special shipping company for boat accessories is currently running a campaign offering maritime art. With this, the supplier wants to support selected artists in the crisis.
The Ultramarin specialist market on Lake Constance will be open to customers on Tuesday, December 15, as usual from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There are no special actions due to the lockdown. The outfitter normally takes company holidays from Christmas to the end of January, these start a little earlier due to the measures to combat the pandemic.
At the Hamburg outfitter TOPLICHT, the crew is on deck. The store is closed, but customers can order via the webshop, by phone or email during the lockdown. Shipping is also in full swing between the holidays.
