finding yourself at home.....

on April 18, 2020

we are still here!
(at a required minimum social distance of 1.5 meters)

many people are surprised that our showroom is open usual hours and we can’t see any need to close in the near future.
our thoughts are with you if times are tough at present, but its good to consider that there are always people worse off than you are, and if you sincerely try, there are always many things to appreciate.
the government has been clear that a small category of retailers have been instructed to be closed and many other shops have closed for their own business or safety decisions, however its clear that planet can still trade.
our showroom technically could accommodate more than 70 clients, keeping to the 4 square meter minimum rule  (although moving around might look like a chess game)
 so to have four or eight visitors at a time, means that we can easily keep required social distance of minimum 1.5 meters from you…… and although it's a little weird to back away from you while having a chat,  hey we will all get used to it.

we have hand sanitizer on arrival as a requirement, and we are regularly cleaning surfaces.  our door is open, so that you don’t even have to touch it.
and you are welcome to pack your own purchases if you desire and of course paying by card is generally safer.
and thanks for asking… is good!
it surprised me also until i thought about that we aren’t expecting to travel internationally for possibly twelve months and we can’t go to a restaurant, or concert, party, bar or wedding, so we are not purchasing clothes either,  and staying at home means that we are tidying things up and making some improvements in the space where we are spending more time than ever before.
after the recent fires we also anticipated issues with timber supply, however our supply is secure, so its full steam ahead…. why not upgrade to some new well designed furniture, built locally of sustainably grown hardwoods? or freshen and cosy up your living spaces with cushions and throws? or support local ceramic makers by upgrading to some new tableware?

please have a look online if you prefer to shop that way, and we do have the click and collect or delivery options to reduce your time in our space. also please keep in mind that there are many items in our store that are not online and we are happy to help you with those items online or by phone also.
lets all try to be optimistic, to keep being creative and productive and to look for things to be grateful for.
kind regards, from all of us at planet
