This week’s blog topic will probably make some of you cringe since we’re going to chat about holiday shopping. I know for a lot of you you don’t want to think about holiday shopping until after Thanksgiving - but if you decide to wait this year - you will probably be out of luck.
This year everything has changed due to the pandemic, and that includes how we will be celebrating the holidays. Many of us are distanced from friends and family which makes things a bit abnormal. Easter was tough enough, but with two major holidays ahead of us, we’ll need to get creative with how we can help those who can’t be close to us to feel included; which maybe I’ll touch on in a future blog :)
Many of you will be mailing gifts to loved ones this year instead of delivering them in person; which will definitely back up your shopping timeline. We can also tell you that many of our vendors have greatly reduced their inventories for fear of sitting on excess product. In other cases, we know that most manufacturing facilities were closed for months and they are only now resuming operations. So, my recommendation is not to wait to purchase your holiday gifts this year, or you might risk getting what you want due to out-of-stock items. This means that all of you who procrastinate might find yourselves in trouble this year!
So, given social distancing and travel quarantine limitations, it’s safe to say we’ll be shopping earlier than usual. Piper and Dune is gearing up now for the season! We’re working hard to secure a small pop-up space here in Connecticut where you can see and purchase our products in person. As always, we offer FREE delivery everyday to: Southbury, Middlebury, Woodbury and Oxford, Connecticut. Also, once we secure the Pop-Up location, you will have the option to order online and pick your order up curb-side- through Christmas Eve. Stay tuned in the next two weeks for more information. We are still waiting for several new orders to come in within the next 2-3 weeks, so please follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter for updates and most importantly, go directly to our website!
We’d like to reward all our loyal customers with a holiday offer; a coupon for 25% off your highest priced item. Valid now through December 24, 2020. Use Code HOLIDAYSPIRIT online or at our pop-up location (more information is coming soon!)
