OCTOBER 13 2020 COVID19 Update  

After more than a month of opening Wednesday to Friday we have to conclude people just aren’t shopping like they used to !

Our online sales continue but we are confident you don’t need three days of shopping. We are therefore not increasing our FOOD BOUTIQUE opening hours as originally hoped in October, instead we are moving to an even tighter shopping window predominantly for Christmas shopping - who doesn’t like to touch and smell what they are choosing for the family holiday table and friends and family gifts.

We will be open Thursday and Friday only until ‘proper’ shopping resumes!! 

We will continue to offer appointments for all commercial hamper customers bespoking their Christmas gift hampers, outside of our opening hours.

Please get in touch if you need to organise a fabulous gift to thank your team and suppliers for sticking with you during 2020!

 

SEPTEMBER 7 2020 COVID -19 Update

With the warmer weather we have been able to open the doors and allow fresh healthy air flow through our Food Boutique and into our Hamper Studio. That has given us confidence along with the buds of spring in our edible garden! to prepare the store for customers.

We have in place a comprehensive COVID-19 Plan, including hand sanitizer at the door and a limit of 4 customers in store at anytime.

We are open 10-3pm Wednesday till Friday for the month of September.

All going well we anticipate increasing these hours in October.

As ever our Social Media accounts and our Google Business page is updated with opening times.

We hope to see you in store soon as we begin to stock up for Christmas!

 

AUGUST 4 2020 COVID -19 Update

As we watch Melbourne being closed for a further 6 weeks to assist the nation, we are coming to terms with how we can help our Melbourne and Victorian business that we work with.

Some of our treasured suppliers are in Melbourne and Victoria, we are communicating with them to ensure we can assist them by doing as much business with them as possible over the next 6 weeks to keep them busy and afloat.

Shopping with us will continue to assist these fabulous Australian Artisan producers.

We expect a few freight issues reaching customers in Victoria, but we are reassured at the moment by our freight company suppliers that they believe they can still achieve good delivery times. We will keep you posted.

Our business will continue to offer a full online shopping experience, and aim to build our gift hamper ranges to promote Victorian artisan Australian producers. We hope you will continue to support us!

 

JUNE 8 2020 COVID-19

As COVID 19 continues to extend our understanding of Ribo Nucleic Acid (RNA) and how it affects our business we are pivoting like a prima ballerina.

Today as we watch Victoria entering another 6 weeks of stay-at-home requirements we have revised our Trading Plans to embrace a long term strategy (6-18 months) rather than our original more optimistic short term strategy set in March (3-6 months).

ONLINE @UrbanProvidore.com

Our ONLINE SHOP will continue to showcase the full range of our Artisan Australian produce as well as enable BESPOKE GIFT HAMPERS TO BE DESIGNED. All deliveries across Australia continue to be dispatched the day after your order is received.

Please contact us via phone, text or email to arrange a suitable time.
