To our beautiful people,
There has been a Covid outbreak on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, where we are based.
First of all, I want to reassure you we’re all safe and sound.
But it is with a heavy heart, particularly the week before Christmas, that we are going to temporarily close our shops until further notice.
I need to keep my staff and their families safe, and our stores are quite busy which is WONDERFUL, but we want to do our part in keeping you safe too.
We’ve also made the decision to close our dispatch warehouse until Sunday 20th Dec. This means we won't be processing online orders today, and will re-start this on Monday 21st Dec. We also won’t be contacting pick ups today, we will on Monday.
Once again, I’ll reassure you we’re all safe and healthy, but there are so many of us and this has just started, so we will all go and get tested and have the weekend at home so we can get off to a fresh start implementing all that is necessary from Monday, with a clean conscience. Hopefully this will be like Adelaide and be nipped in the bud because everyone is doing the right thing.
Once we re-start, we will be taking strict precautionary measures to ensure we are clean and sanitised, both our persons and our equipment. No external people will be coming inside, not even the coffee man.
I know this is inconvenient and an absolute pain for people wanting to pick up their orders and come shopping, and wanting their orders. I’m really sorry if this causes any inconvenience, but I would rather be safe than sorry. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Shelley, JP and the Vine Apparel team xo
