What a difference a week makes, even a day or an hour, these days!
This week, I stopped regular trading at my beautiful shop, but will continue to offer online shopping and to open by appointments … it’s a new world of shopping at the moment.
Below is what I wrote on my social media about this development.
I am so proud to be the owner of The Shoe Garden and to source fabulous shoes for so many beautiful customers around Australia and New Zealand. I cannot imagine doing anything else.
At the moment, the world is upside down and it’s difficult to know what to do and when. The Prime Minister last night confirmed small retailers such as myself can stay open … yet he urged everyone to stay at home. I want to do the right thing and play no part in spreading this dastardly virus further.
I want you to know and I want to be really, really clear … that whatever happens, I will keep fighting for my beautiful shop. The pink boxing gloves … they’re on, they’re laced up and they’re ready!
I know and appreciate there’s so much uncertainty and pain for so many. I’m not alone and this is no one’s fault. I’m fighting as hard as I can in this strange new world and have decided I must re-invent myself.
So, I will be closing the shop at the end of today BUT, rest assured, I am not going anywhere, and it won’t be forever, not on my watch!
First, I will still be selling my gorgeous shoes online as usual and free postage continues. Indeed, if you order before 3pm from tomorrow onwards, they’ll be posted to you on the same day.
I will also open by appointment for anyone wanting to try on some beautiful shoes or boots. Please don’t hesitate to text me on 0408 721195 to make an appointment.
This may well be the normal way of shopping for the near future … and imagine having The Shoe Garden exclusively to yourself and CC and myself attending to you and having a chat and helping you to find the perfect shoes. 🙂
Just text me to arrange a suitable time seven days a week.
I will also still be active on social media and sharing and engaging as I normally do.
Everything has changed but some things will always stay the same … such as my commitment to keeping The Shoe Garden as a safe and happy place, in-store and online, for everyone who loves gorgeous long shoes.
The pink gloves are on and I’m ready!
Stay safe, take care, be kind and we’ll get through this together.
Until next time, Carol & CCx
