Tier 4 Update - January 4

In light of the recent announcement placing Coventry in Tier 4, The Job Shop will be remaining closed for the time being to ensure we can keep our customers and staff safe. Please continue to book an appointment using our online booking portal, but know the appointment will not take place at The Job Shop.
