After introducing many new measures over the last few weeks to help protect our staff and customers, this week we are introducing more new features and services.

The most exciting of these are our new Shopping Fairies......not to be confused with Fairy Shopping - there will be no fairies available to buy at A Place to Create, just fabulous Fairy helpers who will help you shop via Facetime!!!

To help you keep yourself and your family safe, we are introducing shopping fairies this week who will help you shop via Facetime so you can stay safe at home or work and see the shop in real time, in real life, and buy whatever you want. 

The fairies will drop whatever you want in the basket and after you've finished shopping, the fairy will go away and add up your total and contact you for payment. 

You can do a drive by to pick it up in the car park or we can deliver it to you (within a 20km radius of the shop). 

Simply ring the store to set up a time with one of our "shopping fairies". 

Tuesday to Friday 9am - 4pm - Ph: 3851 2200

If you or your family have been compromised, please do what is best for the greater good.

To this end, we have also asked our staff to remain vigilant and remove themselves should they feel they have any concerns. 

In the meantime, we will continue trading and considering the daily information provided by our government and health officials.

Our staff will now wear masks when working in the front end of the store and customers are invited to wear their masks also. We will also be making gloves available and ask you to wear these when shopping or use the hand sanitisers provided as soon as entering the store and before leaving.

* The front page of our blog is now being used to show new items arriving in store with pricing so you can make purchases over the phone or via email.

* Facebook is being updated multiple times a day with information about classes and products etc so you can stay informed and not miss out on any goodies.

* Should you need items but cannot come in, please discuss with us alternative arrangements for a drive through pick up or courier / delivery options.

We are confident that given the layout of our store with multiple divided rooms and the size of the shop that we can safely carry on business under current guidelines. 

If you have any concerns we have not yet addressed or have any other questions, please call us to discuss them on 3851 2200 or email info@aplacetocreate.com.au

Stay safe, stay healthy and let us know if we can help with any supplies to keep
 you crafting through these surreal times.
Regards, Karenina, Sharon, Gayle and the team at A Place to Create.
