As stated in the Group's trading update on 18 March 2020, Ramsdens has a strong balance sheet, including approximately £10m of cash and an undrawn £10m revolving credit facility. The Group welcomes the support measures for businesses outlined by the UK Government so far and plans to utilise those measures that are applicable to the Group. The Group will provide a further update as and when appropriate.

Peter Kenyon, CEO of Ramsdens, commented:

"The safety and wellbeing of our customers, colleagues and the wider community remains our top priority and we are doing what is best by them. We have been following Government guidance throughout this unprecedented period and, following the most recent Government instructions, yesterday we closed our shops until further notice. We look forward to once again opening our doors and serving all the local communities where we operate. Until that time, our jewellery website will remain active for our customers to browse our extensive range of new and second-hand jewellery and luxury brand watches."
