Important Delivery Information



Covid-19 update 

We are regularly sanitizing all work stations and shared spaces and being diligent with hand washing practices. We have implemented procedures for our drivers to avoid person-to-person contact, this includes flowers or hampers being left at the front door of a home address and at the door of apartment buildings with a text &/ or phone call being made to the recipient to let them know where they are left wherever possible. We also will continue to follow to recommendations given to us by nursing homes and retirement villages etc to ensure safe deliveries.
Times like this remind us how thankful we are to be a part of such a vibrant and resilient community, and how truly grateful we are for each and every one of you.
We thank you for your business and we hope to see you soon.
