Nothing Changes...Yet

With lockdown restrictions lifting, now seems the like the right time to lay out where we're currently at and how we plan to move forward.

There isn't going to be a one size fits all solution and so it is up to us as small business owners to figure out the best and safest way of dealing with an ever changing situation. Our approach will remain cautious while we consider the health and safety of ourselves, our customers and our business.

Simply put, we won't be returning to business as usual on July 4th.

We were able to change our business model overnight when lockdown measures were announced, which has led to some big changes in how we use our shop space and the demands on us as owners. A return to how we did things before would mean sacrificing much of what has proved successful for us in the past three months, and with Covid-19 not looking like it's going away any time soon, we're not willing to take any unnecessary risks while so much remains outside our control.

We'll continue to look for ways to ease ourselves back to some sense of normality because a big part of NORD has always been the local community. When the time is right we'll be looking to increase operations to allow people into the shop to buy straight from the fridges as well as safely reopening our small outside drinking space.

Until then we'd just like to say thank you so much to everyone for your support that has enabled us to continue trading throughout what could've been an incredibly difficult time for us.
