We are now into our third week of lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We hope you are all doing well, staying sane and staying healthy! It goes without saying that we miss you all, miss serving you at our shop, and can’t wait to get back to normal!
We’ve been a little quiet on social media since lockdown began, and also here on our website – but it’s been a busy period behind the scenes as you can imagine, working our way through the continually changing governement guidelines, applying for grants and funding, and ensuring that our staff are being looked after. These are strange and unprecedented times, for sure – but the picture does seem to be getting a little clearer day-by-day.
We’ve also been busy in the shop, and have taken the opportunity lockdown has provided to do some vital DIY – all the stuff you never get chance to do when you are open seven days a week! One thing is for sure: the shop will look a million dollars when we do re-open, and we can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been up to!
One thing we can’t avoid during this time, is that eventually things in our kitchen cupboards start to run out! And coffee is no exception! And, if you’re used to drinking the exceptional single-origin coffee we sell at Bean & Bud, then that might cause a bit of a problem once you’re down to your last few beans! If that’s your situation – then worry no more! – help is at hand….
Starting this week we have decided to trial a FREE home delivery service to people in the Harrogate and local area. Not just coffee, but all of the products we have in stock, that you would normally find on our retail shelves. These include the full range of whole-leaf teas, hot choclates, coffee brewing accessories and Bean & Bud gifts.
To order, just pop over to our Retail page, browse the items in stock and decide what you want. As our website isn’t set up to make online payments, we will ask you to send us an Email via the Contact page outlining what you would like, then we’ll send you our bank details for you to make a direct bank payment. We hope to be able to deliver once a week, more often depending on demand.
*Rest assured that we are following all the latest government guidelines when it comes to handling our products, and are vigilant and respectful of all social distancing guidelines when we make our deliveries.
We hope that you will make use of this service, and that you will allow us to get some really great stuff out to you over the coming days, weeks and even months.
Thanks for your custom, and we look forward to seeing you on our rounds – from a safe distance, of course!
