I begin this blog post by hoping that everyone is staying safe during this time. Times like this bring out both the best, and worst in people and some of the scenes I have seen play out before me have both saddened and inspired me. The last couple of weeks have seen significant change, the likes of which we may never see again in our lifetime. I am sure everyone is feeling a mixture of fear, anxiety and stress. However, our small little coastal community of Gerringong is strong and our sense of community inimitable. I am sure we will all be able to work through this together if we look after those in need, and exercise love and compassion for our fellow humans.
In relation to Gerringong H Hardware, at this stage we are still trading, with reduced hours as stated in our previous blog post, and employing each and every measure we can to ensure the safety of both our staff and customers. We implore you to abide by social distancing measures, adhere to safe hygiene practices and when in the store, please use eftpos. We also encourage you to use our delivery service and minimise your trips not just to our store, but any trips in general. We are here for the community and please, if you need anything, particularly if you are an elderly customer or someone in need of extra assistance call us on our store number. We will do our very best to try to accommodate your requests as best we can. Again, these are trying times and we would like to extend our greatest appreciation and gratitude for your continued support of Gerringong H Hardware.
