It’s an interesting first season at Tiree Tea HQ. I was going to tell you all about my plans, but I used those to light the fire a few days ago.
Regardless! Keeping calm and drinking tea is how I am approaching this, so the ONLINE SHOP IS STILL OPEN!
Following on from the Government’s advice last night – that online shops should remain open and be encouraged – that is exactly what I am going to do for as a long as I am able.
I am aware of concerns about posties being overloaded as we all flock to order online, but as I’m far from being an Amazon warehouse, I’m hopeful that the impact will be small! There is a lot to figure out as we get used to this whole new paradigm! In the meantime, I am going to do all I can to minimise the additional effort and risk our incredible posties face.
I am fortunate that I work from home and don’t require to travel to get to work.
To minimise non-essential travel I will be dispatching any orders once a week on the same trip as shopping for essentials.
All these changes mean that there could be a delay in receiving your order. So please take this into consideration when ordering. If you are planning to order for Easter, then it’s best to order asap.
Your order will be safely delivered to your door by your local postie, in line with Royal Mail’s new safe delivery protocols.
If your order is for a gift then I will post directly to the recipient for you. This will save you having to repackage and deliver or post yourself. Just add in a note with your order and I will write it out in my own fair hand! It will really make someone’s day to get a present through the post right now!
Thanks for all your continued support. These are very strange times indeed.
