- Some of our suppliers are still experiencing delays. Where your "usual" brand of product is unavailable, we encourage you to be open to other/new brands to try in its place.
- Our physical store located at our warehouse is now open for shopping as well as order collections. Please ensure that you arrive with a mask; each person entering the store will be asked to sanitise & have their temperature taken.
- Our courier partners have added lots of capacity, and delivery delays are reducing. You will be proactively notified by email should there be any delays with your order. We expect delivery to take 1-6 working days from payment confirmation depending on your province:
- 1-3 working days in the Western Cape;
- 2-5 working days for most orders to Gauteng;
- 3-6 working days for the rest of the country.
- We are enforcing social distancing while picking and packing orders. Staff have the necessary protective gear to wear, especially masks.

- All non-essential staff have been mandated to work from home & our essential warehouse staff have implemented shift work to reduce social contact.

- We are committed to full pay in the case that an employee is quarantined or ill over and above any legally mandated sick leave.
- We are exploring options for access to therapists for staff. We understand that this time can be taking it's toll on our mental health.
