I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve been putting up my Anderson shelter, planning my victory garden and pulling out all the books on food rationing. Oh, and for those of you who can’t find toilet paper, Grandma says the Sears catalog works just as good as store-bought TP. (I can image many of you cringing at the very thought of tearing up a 40s Sears catalog…)
Seriously, we appreciate all of your support. This environment is hard on all of us, especially small businesses. We’re doing everything we can to keep calm and carry on. We’re asking you to do the same.
In these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose the path of social justice…, the path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man – FDR
Please be patient and expect delays: There’s a war on, you know. We’re going to continue to ship as long as it’s feasible and permitted. We are expecting, however, to encounter more SNAFUS than normal.
Events: We’ll evaluate the situation, but right now, the word from the front is not promising. We’re currently planning to attend events in May and June, including the Mid-Atlantic airshow.
What are we doing to aid the effort: The company is constructing an air raid shelter and filling sandbags as I type. Okay, seriously. We’re following the lead of the CDC, WHO, and other health agencies. We have adopted recommended best practices in regards to hand washing and social distancing. We still have hand sanitizer and are using it liberally in our shipping department. All of our food items are packaged by the original manufacturer prior to the outbreak and are perfectly safe.
In short, we’re doing everything we can to make sure your orders arrive safe and sound in this environment. To protect yourself even further, as a general practice, John Hopkins recommends washing your hands after opening any incoming mail.
