Important Notes for Pre-Christmas Orders

Posted by Mark Freeman on

Firstly - A Great Big Thank You

Us lovely folk at Olives Et Al and Loaf & Larder always care deeply about your order. We’re especially delighted that you choose to shop with us during these challenging times and at this important time of the year.

It seems everyone is choosing to send gifts right now. The Sunday Times reported a UK-wide shortage of wicker hampers, and as the festive period draws ever nearer, we’re seeing mahusively large amounts of online ordering, especially for gifting. We're a bit proud about delivering drop-dead-gorgeous service but there is a bit of a dearth of Christmas Miracles in evidence this year. However, we’re doing all we can to make sure it remains as drop-dead-gorgeous as we can. 

 

From Wicker to Christmas Jutes!

Given the situation with wicker hampers, we’ve decided to avoid any disappointment by moving our wicker hamper-based gifts out of wicker, into lovingly packed Christmassy-red jute bags, topped off with ribbon.

Whilst our suppliers and couriers are also working extra hard to keep up, we expect to experience some product shortages and small delivery delays.

 

Bring on the subs!

If you’re browsing our store, whether in person or online, you’ll no doubt have noticed that some products are already going out of stock. In some instances, these aren’t able to be replenished quickly enough, in which case we’re substituting for the most suitable alternative to a similar or greater value. If your recipient has any specific allergies please contact us to ensure we’re aware of the specific order.

 

Last Orders!

To give our couriers every chance of making delivery before Christmas, we’re advising that the last order for pre-Christmas delivery is Midnight on Wednesday 16th December. So, if you’re thinking of sending a gift, please don’t delay.

Meanwhile, we’d like to send a great big thank you along with season's greetings to you and yours. We hope to see you in our delis and eating with us again very soon.
