Thank you for supporting our small business this year.
Back in March, I wasn't sure if our Small Business would survive the pandemic. Would people continue to buy coconut chips & granola? Would our products be a necessity when money was tight? And living in a tourist town, how would our local sales be impacted without tourists?
But we soon found that Australians were quick to support locally grown food and small business.
Aussies were quarantining and our online sales surged. I still get teary thinking of the generosity and encouragement from strangers - it was as if people were intentionally looking to support small business like us.
Our locals came through in a big way, too - local shops began stocking our products (and selling out) like never before. And our markets were filled with people from nearby regions. Australians were holidaying in their backyard and supporting the small businesses around them.
Now it's December 2020. We've made it this far - I am optimistic about the future.
I also wanted to let you know our plans for the next 6 weeks. Some of our staff have asked for extended time off, while others are here for the holidays.
We will be closed for the upcoming public holidays, but will be around for orders as needed. Our online store will remain open and we are continuing with the markets over the holidays.
However, we will close from 5 - 27 January for our family holiday. If you need anything, please order by Monday 4 January 2021 at the latest to ensure we have time to make & send before we leave.
Thank you again for your business during 2020. I wish you and your family all the best for 2021, and look forward to hearing from you again soon.
From my family to yours,
