PROVISIONAL SUSPENSION OF ORDER SHIPMENTS.
As part of the containment measures taken by the French government from March 17, 2020, our activity, like so many others, is disrupted. The following text is a bit long, but please read until the end, it's important.
It was a very difficult decision for a small business like ours, but we decided to put common sense and safety first.
We suspend the dispatch of orders until further notice.
The movement of people must be reduced to the minimum necessary. Pompom can wait a few days for his new bridle!
We are not going to go to the Post Office to drop off your packages and potentially make the virus circulate.
We do not ask postmen/deliverers to take risks for their health and that of others, for products that are not essential to life.
We also ask our suppliers not to send us any more packages, to limit the comings and goings of delivery drivers.
And as we do ourselves, we ask you to limit your travels and your interactions with other people as much as possible.
Do not take unnecessary risks either, ride a horse, cut wood or redo your roof for example ... Hospitals are already overloaded, unnecessary to add even more patients because of accidents that could have been avoided.
Orders in progress with our manufacturers are still in progress, with of course the disruptions related to current conditions and inevitable delays. Portugal, Spain and Italy, countries where all of our suppliers are based, like France, are subject to exceptional sanitary measures. Zaldi has completely closed his workshops until further notice. The others may follow...
Everyone says it, and we repeat it to you, because we can never say it enough: limit your trips to what is strictly necessary.
Don't panic, but be reasonable and use common sense.
Protect yourself. Protect the others.
Containment is a necessary evil to stem the spread of the virus, and the more rigorous we are, the less time it will last!
It is about the lives of many people, and the economic health of our country.
Be reasonable and careful, and see you very soon!
