The store, which has been a part of the High Street for 101 years, will also collect food shopping and deliver for free to the elderly within the Weston and Worle area.
Mike Byrne of Skidmores told the Mercury: “As a business we will come through this the other side, but some of our customers will not.
“The elderly are vulnerable so we will do what we can to help them.
“We are following Government guidelines and will stand suitably from others and we are also regularly cleaning down our vans to make sure people are safe.
“We need to bring that wartime spirit back, look after each other and turn a negative situation into a positive one.”
