These are strange and uncertain times. While our brick & mortar shop is closed, our online shop remains open. The Art of Home completely understands that we do not necessarily sell anything “essential”, but rather, we sell products and items that may ease the burden and stress of self-isolation. We want to support you in your efforts to work from home or self-isolate during this time. We have always been a “happy place” for our amazing customers and our community, and it is our hope that we can continue to bring a little bit of happiness and comfort to you in this uneasy time.
It is our commitment to you that we will do everything in our power to get your online orders out in a safe and timely manner. We are following the recommendations provided by the World Health Organization and The Government of Canada.
HOW ARE WE DOING THIS?
We are practicing strict social distancing - there is only ever one Shopgirl working to pick & pack orders at a time (although she probably has her husband there with her!)
We have implemented strict protocol for Shopgirls to practice social distancing both at work and in their personal lives.
All collaborative work is being conducted over the phone or computer.
We have maximized cleaning measures to ensure safe product shipping and a safe working environment for all, such as:
- Having safety products available (hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, gloves)
- Paying attention to cleaning and disinfecting door handles, computer keyboards, telephones, packing supplies, etc.
- Practicing frequent hand washing and good hygiene
- Ensuring we are aware of the symptoms and risk of the virus and not working if we are sick
- Avoid touching our eyes, nose and mouth and coughing or sneezing into the bend of our arm
We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt when and where we can to help stop the spread and ensure the safety of our community.
We appreciate all of the support our community has shown us and are so happy you continue to choose to shop The Art of Home! It means the world to us! We have worked hard to get to where we are today and could not have done so without you. We look forward to reopening our brick & mortar doors one day soon and enjoying a full return to business as usual.
Stay safe & healthy,
Pamela, Laura & Joanne
