- The One Stop Shops are a drop-in facility. We aim to see all customers by closing time, however during busy periods (beginning of the week and towards the end of the day); we may not be able to see everyone. Customers are advised to come as early in the day as possible. Also due to customer volumes, on some occasions we may have to close the doors earlier than the advertised times.
