An important message from MCS
It is a very intense moment and it feels like the realities of this outbreak are really hitting home. We are all of course very concerned about the situation and given the research we agree with the strong measures that the Victorian Government are putting in place to try and flatten the curve.
With this in mind we feel it is the responsible action to close our physical retail store to minimise the risk to our customers and ourselves for the interim period.
I will be self isolating in the store and at our North Fitzroy office (home) so will be fully available to process online orders, answer any questions and keep our communication up with all of you so if you feel like shopping remotely we can facilitate this in as many was as possible.
We are available on webchat through Facetime or Skype which will give us the opportunity to run you through things in a more personal way. Just direct message me through our Instagram account @modernclassicshop and we can make arrangements that suit you. We are also available via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to speak in person just call the store directly (I have this number forwarded to my mobile) and I would be very happy to help with anything. It would be great to chat!
In terms of the website I will be putting up new things daily which I will notify our community of as they role out via our Instagram account. We will also extend our offer of free shipping on all domestic online sales for at least the next month and beyond depending how things develop.
I can also personally deliver things (practising of course the safe distancing) if you live within 20km from the store if this is preferable.
Each week we will continue distributing our email newsletter 'The Good News' and try and come through with some light hearted titbits to try and keep some good vibes going.
I want to thank you all for your incredible ongoing support and good will and look forward to seeing you all soon when we beat this thing. Stay safe and keep in touch if we can help with anything.
Very best wishes,
