Unchartered Times - COVID 19 HOLIDAY
The blog post is to give you some updates and guidance on how best to navigate online holiday shopping which will, no doubt, be unlike any other Christmas season we've seen.
Here is what you need to know:
1. There will be order delivery delays - delivery carriers have indicated their performance and delivery times will get worse the closer to Christmas even though they've been ramping up for this season. Delivery carriers are also increasing their prices for the holiday season although we will not pass these costs on to our customers.
2. There are manufacturer supply chain problems and shortages of some products. We are looking good right now, but some of our Top Sellers will not be available very soon (and we may be unable to source them again), and some are already sold out. Shop Early!
3. The infamous "second wave" of COVID-19 is beginning as we've seen upticks in cases and hospitalizations. Unfortunately, this will result in some closures, shutdowns or restrictions in capacity (delivery of custom items will be delayed longer).
Warmblood Tack Store is a small, family-owned business and we can control much of our orders and shipping times (for the most part), but we cannot control our delivery service companies or when we receive merchandise in from our suppliers. We ask that everyone exercise patience and understanding during these unchartered times.
We thank you for your patronage and also encourage you to shop early (whether it is from us or elsewhere).
