Dear Scottsville Supply Company Community,
We would like to inform you that as of June 23rd, Heather tested NEGATIVE for COVID-19 antibodies. We are sharing her medical information to assure you we are taking all possible safety precautions both at our business and in our personal lives to keep your visits to our store COVID-free. This also likely means what we are doing is working, so we are going to continue to do business in the manner described below.
As the impact of COVID-19 has increased around the world and here in the US, we felt it was important to connect with our greater community to let you know what action Scottsville Supply Company has taken. It’s quite clear we’re all in this together, and everything we have done is for the purpose of protecting the health of our employees and our customers, as well as our local, national and global communities.
Just like many other industries, the bee supply and equipment chain has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and some bee equipment manufacturing facilities either had to shut down for several weeks or are impacted by a reduced workforce. This has led to a shortage of supplies across the board for most of us. We do our best to maintain our current stock levels of equipment accurate on the website, but we might be backordered on items you order. We will fill our backorders in the order in which they were received and as quickly as possible.
We will remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic as an essential business; however, we are only allowing employees in the store. We will serve you by doing curbside pickups or shipping orders as of April 2nd until we feel is safe for our customers to enter our store in a manner where social distancing recommendations by the CDC and occupancy requirements by the state government can be met. Please understand this may be AFTER restrictions are loosened or lifted.
Curbside pickup will be Wednesday through Friday from 12:00 pm until 5:00 pm and Saturday 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. Walk up customer traffic to our curbside assistance area is encouraged and welcomed – you do not need to place an order ahead of time. Please use our back parking lot to help us manage meeting you outside in a safe location for your order. You can place a curbside pickup order over the phone or online by choosing “Local Pickup”. Please allow for the one full business day for your pickup order to be filled. Shipping orders can be placed through our website and will ship within 3 to 4 business days.
We appreciate your support and wish you (and your bees!) good health.
