We would like to thank all our customers for their support during the pandemic. We really appreciate everyone making an effort to keep supporting the shop and have enjoyed supplying our customers at a distance through our delivery service as well. Hygiene and distancing measures are still in place, and we are still asking customers to wear a mask if they are happy to when visting the shop. We have quite a few elderly customers who remain concerned during this third current wave, and out of respect to them and other customers we are aiming to take it slowly with any changes in the shop over the coming weeks.
The shop is very much a long term project and thanks to our customers support through the pandemic we have been able to reinvest in the shop once more. Hopefully everyone will notice the improved refridgeration and ventilation in store when shopping this summer. The improved ventilation not only means the shop is much cooler, but it also helps makes it safer in the current circumstances. . Our aim has always to provide a long term sustainable community resource, and we really value our customers support in helping us work towards that goal.
We are keeping up our delivery and collection service as it continues to be well received by customers, but as a small local business we do really appreciate new delivery orders from week to week. We expect they will be essential to keeping our delivery service viable. The recent building work has helped us get a bit more space in the shop, but hopefully the shop is still small enough to allow us to concentrate on every product and hopefully on every one of our customers as well.
The pandemic has proved a sad and challenging time for many of our customers as well as some of us who work at the shop. But it has been nice to see more and more old faces appearing in the shop recently. There is no doubt that the pandemic has given many a bit of time out and the opportunity to reflect on how they were shopping. We have seen a renewed interest in organic produce and we plan to keep working away to offer the very best fresh organic foods at reasonable prices.
Thanks again to all of our customers for their ongoing support.
Elaine, Rob, Simon, Mai Linh & all at the shop
