Like you, we are doing our best to find a new normal amidst everything that has unfolded with COVID-19 in the last couple of weeks.
After taking time to figure out what felt right for our business we have a few updates to share. Through the next coming weeks, we will also be focusing on spotlighting positive ways to connect our community through social media. If you have tips for our fellow local businesses or even the funny or heartwarming things you've come across, send them our way through DM's.
With the situation evolving so quickly we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Easter Collection and pause production for the foreseeable future.
This was one element that we felt we could control and support the greater community we're part of. It was not easy, and it does not come without its own setbacks for our business but it is the best considering everything we're dealing with.
Our online store will remain open with national shipping available as long as Canada Post is able to offer service. Maybe it is for yourself or you'd like to send some to someone you love, we can all use a thoughtful gesture and some uplifting chocolates. Feel free to include a note and we'll customize a card for them. To show our appreciation for the love and support of our community we've set up the promo code LOVE2020 for 20% off your online purchase of bars from now until April 8, 2020.
We have adjusted our shipping protocols to aid in social distancing for everyone involved. Your delivery will not require a signature and may be left if the postal worker deems it safe. You will be provided with your tracking information and we ask that you keep up to date to help ensure your order arrives safely to you.
While not everyone is able to make purchases at this time, helping to share your favourite businesses through social media is incredibly helpful. We appreciate any shoutouts you're able to give to us and we look forward to sharing our favourites back with you! The last year has had many tough points for independent businesses like ours. To say that we value any support you're able to give is a wild understatement. You can help us, and any independent business you love, get through this difficult period by recommending us to friends, leaving online reviews, liking and sharing posts back to your feeds.
Please rest assured that we are keeping a close eye on recommendations from AHS, our provincial, and national governments and will make changes as needed to align with their efforts and how we operate through this.
Like all of us in our community we want the best for the safety and well being of our family, friends, and neighbours. This time isn't easy on any of us and we hope that you know we will help in any way we can. We'll be available on email throughout this period and using this time to plan amazing things for the future!
Stay positive, safe, and healthy. We can get through this together!
