Important information relating to COVID-19
Our online store remains operational with new safety measures being rolled out across the delivery network nationally, which may cause slight delays to delivery times.
Our domestic delivery partner, Australia Post, are now implementing additional measures when delivering parcels. To minimise the risk of contracting or spreading Coronavirus, all parcels will no longer require a signature for delivery and/or collection. In all cases, whether a driver delivers to the door or you are required to go into your local Post Office to collect a parcel, Australia Post staff will ask and record your name and sign on their behalf.
As we continue to operate exclusively online, we are working hard to dispatch every order within our promised timeframes. Our distribution partners have recommended we advise of longer than usual delivery timeframes due to increased online shopping, fewer domestic flights and, most importantly increased safety measures to protect customers. We apologies for these delays, and we appreciate your ongoing support, understanding and loyalty throughout these unprecedented times.
