What's Happening Now
Most importantly, we hope you're all safe and healthy. Here in the Orchard, we're taking some time to breathe. We've spent more than 20 years building a small business based on face-to-face interaction and personal relationships, and with circumstances forcing us all apart, we're having to find new ways of doing things. So, the breathing is important.
For now, we are closed up, but we'll still be in to receive inventory and ship out orders (and, yes, wipe down every surface with disinfectant). If there's something you know you want, we can take an order over the phone and drop it in the mail, but we're also hard at work adding more things to the website every day, including gift cards and a few Curated Care Packages. And we're offering free shipping on local orders over $40! Send a pick-me-up or a bit of much-needed humor to a loved one (or to yourself) and we'll ship it off with a note from you.
Thank you very much for your support over the years. Right now, we don't know what the future holds, but we intend to carry on until we see you again. And our hope is that, as we all find common cause in these difficult times, we might end up with a stronger sense of community and purpose.
All the best,
John, Caroline and everyone at Red Orchard
