During the temporary closure, we will continue to work closely with the Victorian Government and public health officials on any updates to the restrictions as well as health and safety guidelines, and keep you informed as best as we can.
We have taken several precautionary measures including the below to ensure our stores are safe, hygienic environments for everyone. The health and safety of our team, customers and the community is our first priority.As it is important to us that we provide ongoing support to the Australian community wherever possible, we have donated over 500,000 masks to several local not-for-profit organisations to help them in their vital role to combat COVID-19.

Q. Are there currently any changes to the usual delivery time frames?
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, there may be some delays to the deliveries of our online orders. It is recommended to allow an extra 3 business days after the estimated delivery date for your parcel to arrive which allows for any unexpected delays.
If you have still not received your parcel after this period, please get in touch with our friendly Customer Care team.
Currently we will not have an Express Post option available due to these delays.NEW DELIVERY METHOD
Q. How will the new delivery method work?
To practice social distancing, our delivery partner will temporarily not require a physical signature from the recipient. What this means is, the delivery person will knock or ring the bell at your delivery address, place the goods on the ground close to your door and step away.
Should you be present at the delivery address:
- The delivery person, who will be standing at a safe distance, will now have the authority to verbally confirm the full name of the customer (noted on the package) , without the physical signature usually required.
Should you not be present at the delivery address:
- As per usual operating procedure, the delivery person will consider whether there is a safe area to leave the goods and if so, authority to leave (ATL) will apply and no name or signature will be obtained
o If the goods are left in a safe area, the delivery person will do their best to make a note of the location or take a picture as proof of delivery.
o If the delivery person does not deem it a safe area, a card will be left to notify the customer that there was an attempted delivery and the goods will be taken to a local post office for collection by the customer.
Q. What would be considered a safe area to leave goods?
A safe area is defined as a location out of the elements, out of view of the public and not on a thoroughfare.
Q. Can I request for the goods to be delivered at a post office instead?
Yes, you can. Sign up to MyPost and once your account is up and running, input your tracking code and this will provide you the ability to reroute your order to a new address or post office for pickup.
Q. How can I be notified of delivery updates so that I know when to be home for delivery?
We have made it as easy as possible to track your order online. Once your order has been shipped from our warehouse, you will receive an email from us and Shippit with your tracking details and estimated delivery date. We will also notify you via email or SMS when your package is in transit and ready for delivery so you are kept up to date.
