Take care of yourselves and each other.
The Original Penguin team


It is with regret that we have decided to temporarily close all of our Original Penguin stores as of 19th March 2020, for the safety of our customers and staff.

As of the 18th June we have opened Chesire Oaks and Portsmouth with our York, Street, Swindon and Ashford stores opening on the 24th June.


Our online store continues to operate as usual.

We will continue to add fresh new styles to our online collections, which we will share with you in our emails and on our social channels - we look forward to keeping you inspired.


Due to the current situation we are experiencing delays in our international deliveries. Whilst most orders remain unaffected, some parcels may be delivered later than the expected date up to 21 working days. We are working hard to ensure each parcel reaches our customers on time and we apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

For all non-european countries we have increased the delivery charges to incorporate COVID-19 surcharges.
Please be assured that it is our intention that this will only be a temporary measure.

We are not experiencing delays with our UK mainland orders but may experience delays to Jersey, Guernsey and Isle Of Man

To support you in these unprecedented circumstances we have updated our returns policy and extended our returns period.
We had extended our returns period to 45 days. This ended on the 15th June and has now reverted back to 15 days return period for Sale and 28 days for full price.

If you are experiencing problems or have further questions, please contact our customer service.
