We fully support and in fact like many of you, were relieved when the government placed us in lockdown on level 4 for at least this month. As we all know, this has potentially saved many lives, so it truly makes us proud to see that the government took such strong actions when they did. Unfortunately right now, economists are predicting that as many as 1/3 of kiwi companies could go out of business due to the impact of the lockdown on our economy. Like all other kiwi businesses, we are doing everything we can right now to keep afloat. If it's meant that lives have been saved because of it, it makes it all worth it.
Why have we decided to give you the choice to get essential items now or after lockdown?
With much deliberation and conversations with our friends who run other fashion retail businesses, we've decided to offer our customers the opportunity to buy essential items online now.
We’re giving you the choice if you would like these essential items now, or whether you’d like them after lockdown.
All non-essential items will be sent after lockdown.
We are fuelled by hope.
We have hope that not only will we be able to continue supplying you, our lovely customers long term, but that we can continue to support our wonderful suppliers/brands to stay afloat and protect everything they’ve worked hard for. These people put their blood, sweat and tears into creating something special for the joy of their customers. Supporting small / medium local businesses doesn't only mean you're supporting the business owners - it means you're supporting the 30% of our working population who are employed by these people, and in turn their families.
So don’t forget SHOP LOCAL, SHOP SMALL, it really will make a difference to the lives of so many New Zealanders.
Thank you for understanding, while we navigate this uncertain time alongside you,
All my love, Chrissy xxx
