12/05/2020- Saturday Morning Opening

Norman Piette will now be opening on Saturday mornings from 8am – 12pm for  TRADE customers only.

Our new opening hours will remain the same until Phase 3 has been announced by the States of Guernsey.

These are Monday-Friday 7.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-5pm and Saturday 8am-12pm.

We look forward to seeing you soon.


Norman Piette and Project Hire will be closed on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th May, we apologise in advanced for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our current regular opening hours are 7.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-5pm Monday to Friday.


The Norman Piette site will be open under controlled condition collections from 7.30am on Monday 27th April.

The opening hours will be 7.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-5pm. Please note, we will be closing the site at 12.30pm to allow for a change of shift without exceeding the staff numbers on site.

Our full stock of building and decorating materials and tools will be available, provided it can be handled in compliance with social distancing rules.
We want to serve everyone as swiftly and efficiently as possible and to facilitate this, on arrival you will be required to follow the instructions of our parking marshals and those on the entrance doors of our department.

At this time, we would like to support those in the building trade that are able to go back to work and as the number of customers permitted in every area will be limited, we ask that you please try to help us by selecting your purchases quickly.

During this period, please note that we cannot take cash, only card or account payment will be accepted.

Our showroom will also be staffed with one member of staff for anyone wishing to enquire about kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.

We trust that your understand that we are not yet able to operate at anywhere near our full capacity and ask that you please be patient with our staff and with other customers.

NB Whilst we will do all we can to accommodate every request, we may not be able to provide large or bulky items that cannot be loaded by one person or by a forklift. If you have any queries with regards to this type of order, please contact our sales team on 245801.

We are still operating a FREE delivery service for orders over £40.

Unfortunately, The Timber Mill and its services will remain closed during this period, although cut sheets (up to a limited amount) will still be available,

17/04/2020 – Minimum Order Introduced

Norman Piette decided to waive our delivery charge when we were able to open for deliveries as a way of fulfilling as many orders as possible and getting products out into the community and homes.

We have been delighted to hear the many stories about DIY projects and what customers have been able to get done during the lockdown.

Now, to streamline and speed up the process with our limited delivery department we will be introducing a minimum order value of £40. We will continue to offer a FREE of charge delivery service providing the order meets the £40 minimum value. Please note that if you have placed an order with us for less than £40 prior to this announcement, we will still deliver as promised and we hope you will understand the reasoning behind the decision.

09/04/2020 – Easter Weekend

Norman Piette will be closed over the Easter weekend but orders can still go through to and will be picked up by a member of the team from Tuesday.

Deliveries will continue on both Good Friday and Saturday to get as many orders out to customers as possible. Emergency products are still able to be supplied by both collection or delivery.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their patience and understanding at this difficult time.
We would also like to thank our fantastic team of staff who have been working extremely hard in tough circumstances, both remotely and on site. You guys are great!

07/04/2020 – 6pm

Following the revised guidance from the States of Guernsey, Norman Piette will commence a delivery service from the 8th April.

This will be carried out following strict regulations and health and safety protocol. Only items that are able to be delivered within the guidelines will be available.

Orders will be delivered to private homes only and not to any trade sites. All previously placed deliveries will be prioritised.

If you do place an order please bear with us as we are operating the service with a skeleton crew, which will result in longer delivery times than normal.

To place an order, please email with your requirements including your contact telephone number and a member of our team will ring you back when available.

Thank you for your patience at this time and stay safe.

Following yesterday’s island-wide lockdown announcement and consultation with the States of Guernsey, Norman Piette Ltd. regret to announce that we have no option but to close our business immediately. We will advise you further as and when the situation changes.
