We Are Moving!
BIG NEWS. Craig and I have bought a house in Lombardy. About 10 minute south of Smith Falls, we've secured 28 acres of land that will allow us to start our dream of having our very own micro-sanctuary! We are so SO so excited for this new chapter.
This means lots of changes for Secondhand Stories. First, let me assure you we are not closing. Far from it. This gives us the opportunity to expand and innovate new ways to reach you, despite being an hour away. Here's what we have set up:
CURRENT LOCAL PICK UP & DELIVERY
You can still select local pick up from the website and will have until July 3rd to pick up your orders. Local delivery can be selected up until July 6th for weekly deliveries, and then will transition to bi-monthly deliveries (every other Thursday). We will be removing all books from the website on July 3rd to 10th for a one-week hiatus while we get settled into the new house.
NEW OTTAWA PICK UP
We are partnering with a few select businesses to offer flexible pick up within their business hours. Bi-monthly we will drop off orders at their stores and then you will be able to pick them up anytime in the next two-weeks during their operating hours. Once we re-launch in July you will be able to select which store you'd like to pick up from.
Additionally, we will have pick-up days in Kanata (hosted by Craig's parents), where we will pre-set 2 days a month where you can select your day and stop by anytime in the window. For example, our first Kanata pick-up day will be Sunday, July 24th between 11am and 2pm.
NEW LOMBARDY DELIVERY
If you live in Perth, Smith Falls or within 10km of our new house in Lombardy we will now be offering local delivery to our new 'hood! These deliveries will be arranged on an individual basis with those in the area.
If you have any questions about how this will roll out, or suggestions on what you'd like to see included in this transition, please let me know. I am eager to make this process as easy as possible for you all, so that we can count on your continued support of the sanctuary!
