Well, we have to say, we weren't quite expecting the abrupt announcement last weekend, but as a small business in 2020, we're nothing if we aren't resilient and happy to be able to pivot when the occasion calls for it.
With just over a month left to shop small this Christmas, we've worked harder than ever to make sure you can fill your family and friends stockings with lots of Feather & Nest goodies. Here's how:
Shop online - Home delivery
Our website is open 24/7 365 days a year and our pages are jam-packed with perfect presents for everyone (even those difficult to buy ones). We'll keep all of our channels regularly updated so you can see what's new and make sure you snap up all of our goodies before they're gone.
Whilst the shop is closed, our team of Christmas elves will still be here, safely packing your orders and getting them to you as fast as Royal Mail can carry them.
Shop online - Click & collect
Thanks to the allowance of click and collect to the governments' guidelines, if you're local, you can now pick up your presents during normal store opening hours, simply call or message us to give us a rough time you'll be arriving.
We'll be ready and waiting to meet you with your order.
Book - Virtual shopping
We know that sometimes it can be hard to find what you're looking for online and so if you're after a little inspiration, why not book an appointment for some 1-2-1 support from our friendly in-store team.
Tell us who you're shopping for and what their likes and dislikes are and we'll pair you with the perfect present - all from the comfort of your own sofa.
All the festive trimmings
With all the uncertainty around right now, Christmas will be an extra special date in the diary for all of us, even if we can't be together and so that's why we'll be adding the gift wrap option as well as giving all of our customers the chance to send a hand-written card too.
Simply leave us a note at the checkout and we'll take care of the rest.
Finally, we know the next few weeks and beyond will be tough for a lot of people, including independents like us and we just want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you in advance for supporting us and shopping small.
Team Feather & Nest
