Covid-19 update – Thursday 1st October 2020.
Please note Deliveries in the UK and most of the world are getting back to normal but, there are still some countries that are currently taking longer than usual and some delays are to be expected due to restrictions on movement to minimise the spread of the Coronavirus. We are still shipping orders as usual although it would be wise to check that your country is still receiving and delivering post.
We are getting very close to the Chinese New Year and our 2021 year of Yin Metal Ox ( Xin Chou) annual cures Feng Shui kits will be released as normally around the beginning of November but I would strongly recommend you order early this year as orders to parts of the world are still taking longer than normal and this is out of our control.
We hope that you are all staying safe and healthy during this terrible time and that this pandemic is not causing too much distress for you and your loved ones.
This is a terrible time to be going through around the world and in times like this, it is so amazing to see all the good that is taking place during this pandemic; we have strangers helping each other and so much love and good being shown in the world.
It has pretty much been business as usual for us right from the start of the pandemic although Michael has had to restrict his on-site Feng Shui consultations and had to cancel most of his booked consultations this year.
We are taking extensive measures to ensure hygiene and safety is practised at all times in the workplace. We will be shipping orders as we normally would and will be following our government’s advice.
We are lucky enough to be a family run business so that we can limit our exposure and self-isolate while still being able to carry on working. As an online store, our warehouse is based in a remote location so that we can carry on sending out orders and then catch up on emails and maintain the website from home.
What we are doing at the Feng Shui Store to tackle COVID-19
- Safety —
- We have split ourselves up to ensure we can still work in safety. I am currently writing this in my living room with my dog Frankie by my feet.
- Stopped all on-site consultations during the lockdown
- All orders are being sent out under very strict hygiene conditions
- Jo will be handling the packing of orders and has moved all stock onsite to avoid unnecessary travel and avoid risks
- Regular deep cleaning with disinfectants
- Supply —
Luckily as a family run business, we have been able to move a lot of our work to our home offices and carry on as normal. We have been shipping orders out as normal. All of our stock has been with us for the past 2-3 years and any new deliveries that come in have been put in a separate shipping container on-site for one month to ensure that there is no risk of any contamination.
- Support —
We have always tried our hardest to offer the best advice that we possibly can without trying to sell anything; it is our ethos that cures and enhancers should be naturally chosen and not forced. We have been inundated with emails lately asking for advice on how to ensure safety, health, and financial security during these times and we have been burning the midnight oil to get back to everyone but please be aware that it may take us longer than usual to reply.
Wishing you all safety and health during this pandemic,
Michael, Jo, and Daniel
The Feng Shui Store.
