StaySafe Marketplace24 August 2020
First off, we really appreciate the support we have received from people across Ireland and the UK over the last 5 months. We have shipped masks to thousands of customers and retail is going great. Our increased manufacturing volumes are bringing economies of scale in production which means we have just reduced all our prices online!
We are now stocked in almost 1000 stores across Ireland and the UK. Multiple independent retailers, Fresh The Good Food Market, Circle K, Select Spar stores, Select Maxol Stores, Applegreen N Ireland, 300 Waterstones stores in the UK, all Robert Dyas UK stores and many more. Our retail partners are vital to us, as a convenience product we want to be widely available to people when they need us most. Petrol stations and convenience stores have been great for our individually wrapped and 3 packs of masks. Our aim is to now list our bulk and individually wrapped 50 packs in supermarket’s across UK and Ireland.
Like any new start-up we have had some growing pains, but nothing we have not been unable to overcome. We are building a very loyal customer base and get many lovely emails from our customers. The following review was left last week on our web site and comments like this give us huge energy to keep pushing forward.

I have bought several boxes of Stay Safe masks and they are without doubt the best.
I wear glasses and they are the only brand I’ve come across (and I’ve tried a lot) which reduces lens fogging.
The individually wrapped masks are brilliant to take in my bag when I’m out and about and I know the mask I’m putting on is completely sterile.
I will be wearing Stay Safe masks when I return to work in a school.
And I always wear one on public transport and I feel very safe because they are such a close fit.
Great to have such high-quality products made in Ireland. Would highly recommend.
Many customers have asked us to increase our product range. We have discussed this at length and think the best option for our customers and partners is to continue to develop our disposable mask range and work with other Irish and UK brands to offer additional complimentary products to our customers thru a marketplace on our website. Products like hand sanitizer, cloth face covering etc are examples of what people have asked for. There are many distilleries who have moved into sanitizer for example and we would be happy to discuss offering their range on our web shop marketplace.
We are also interested in working on collaboration projects with other local brands to offer our masks as an added value to the service or product you offer. We strongly believe in teamwork, remember 2+2=5😊
Reach out if you have an idea to work with us!
