March, 2020: Hey Fiber Friends,
How are you doing? No, really... how are you doing? We're thinking about you and we're sending so many good vibes your way!
We understand that things feel a little chaotic right now and although you've probably received what feels like a hundred of these messages, we do think it's important to say what Jimmy Beans is doing to help protect both you as our customer and our team.
We are monitoring developments of COVID-19 closely and are adhering to the recommendations provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), public health agencies, and state and local government officials. We are encouraging frequent hand washing and disinfecting by our employees every day and have provided them the products to do so. We offer sick leave and are granting any employee who feels ill or wants to work from home, the option to do so. And, out of an abundance of caution, we have closed our retail location for the foreseeable future to minimize the spread of the virus. We will, however, offer drive-by pick-ups for our local customers. Our warehouse, customer service, marketing, and production teams will continue as normal but we do ask for your patience as operations may be slower depending on staffing availability. Ordering online will still be available 24/7.
With so many of us finding ourselves spending more time at home, we encourage you to use this time to get acquainted with a new technique, an old WIP, or to cast on that project you've always wanted to make. Knitting and crocheting have been proven to reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, and produce endorphins and it seems we all need that now more than ever.
To make making even easier, starting today through the end of March, all U.S. orders of any dollar amount will receive FREE Flat Rate shipping - no code needed.
We wish you a healthy week. Happy & safe making!
- Team Beans
