We decided to close up shop for the summer due to personal and family illness on both our parts. We’ve been running ourselves ragged for the past several months and we thought it was a good time to take a break. We figured our mixes were in enough stores to keep people happy for a few weeks, and no one bakes around here in the summer anyway. So, with our webmaster already away on holiday, I did the only thing I actually know how to do on our website: set all of our stock at “0”. Then I posted a friendly announcement on our Facebook page and went upstairs to start packing. I didn’t think anyone would notice – no one ever orders from our webshop in the summer!
Wouldn’t you know it…? We received an email from a very nice, and very upset, lady today. She had gone to our site to order some mixes and found she couldn’t! Was there something wrong with her iPad? Or were we – heaven forbid – out of business?! I called her right away, explained the situation, and offered to send her whatever she wanted. All’s well that ends well!
If anyone has a baking emergency this summer, I’m afraid you’re going to have to go to Marqt or another one of our retail outlets. Or… you’ll have to bake from scratch. I know it’s more work, but it’s also fun and I’m sure you can do it! If you’re looking for great recipes, try finecooking.com. Their recipes are always very good and easy to follow.
And now Brigitte and I are going to wish you all a fine summer vacation and I’m going to get back to packing. Hope you all have lovely plans to rest up, or travel, or just putter around the house. See you in September!
“Let them eat cake!”
