Two Storms on Opposite Sides of the Globe
We first want to send our warmest, most hopeful thoughts to all those in the Carolinas in America, and in the Philippines in Asia, that they stay safe and dry.
There are currently two large storms on both sides of the planet that are doing significant damage to their respective areas. While this is inherently bad news, both storms also happen to be hitting furniture production zones important to the entire business.
We want to let our customers and trade partners know that in some cases, these storms will be affecting our normal lead times. Between the disruptions to freight lines, and the disruptions to production, we will see some slight delays as our friends work through these strong storms and the difficult situations they create. We will be doing everything in our power to keep our orders moving and to minimize the impact on our operations.
