Dear Valued Customers,
The Rusty Birds team is taking proactive measures to keep our staff healthy during the global spread of novel COVID-19. With our staff's health in the forefront of our decision making, we are temporarily closing up shop this week and encouraging social distancing. All staff has been instructed to stay home this week, and will return to work next Monday, March 23rd.
Although we cannot fully predict the impacts COVID-19 will have on small businesses such as ourselves, we are doing all we can to keep our staff employed. Hours for all staff will be reduced beginning Monday, March 23rd. We are expecting a slight delay in processing time due to hour changes, so keep that in mind while placing orders. If you need your package by a certain date, please send us an email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or give us a call ( 360.573.1055 ) to let us know that your package needs to be rushed. Gifts cards are also an option, and are done so electronically via email, so no waiting for a package to show up in the mail! :)
We encourage everyone to stay home, stay safe, and stay healthy during the spread of COVID-19, but also encourage you to not forget about your local mom-and-pop-shops. Small businesses rely on your support, and without you, we wouldn't be where we are today. We are still shipping orders out as fast as our tape guns will go, so don't hesitate to help keep your favorite little rusty bird business afloat!
(P.s. Mother's Day is coming up soon! Right now is a perfect time to place your orders and receive your package with plenty of time to pretty it up with gift wrap at home!)
