COVID-19 Updates

4 August 2020

From tomorrow Wednesday 5 August we’ll be shutting down our processing and scanning services for six weeks, following the DHHS Stage 4 Restrictions for Retail Trade Services. Please find more info below.

Our online store remains open throughout this period and we'll be posting out orders regularly, as well as still offering free local delivery.

For any queries during this period please contact us via email at — we’ll do our best to respond within a few days. 

Thank you for the continued support over the past five months. Please continue to support small business where you can. See you soon, and take care of yourselves and each other.
