THIRD & FINAL UPDATE FOR SATURDAY 3rd MARCH 2018
FRIDAY 2nd MARCH 2018 – 4:30pm
*** THE CASH & CARRY WILL OPEN SATURDAY 3rd MARCH 2018 6am – 10am ***
However both Andrew and I have been out locally to assess the road conditions with deliveries in mind for Saturday….although main motorway/A-roads are passable, as soon as you enter any side road/B-road it is clear these haven’t been regretted/cleared and remain treacherous. As a result we are confident that the cash & carry will open and customers will be able to reach us being located near to the M4/M5/M32, A4 and with the Feeder Road also being clear.
However our drivers would face with huge problems in the long rear wheel drive vans we operate if we were to offer a delivery to any of the areas we serve in the South-West with many customers being located off main roads. Andrew and I have witnessed various rear wheel drive vehicles abandoned whilst we were out. As a result NO DELIVERIES will operate on Saturday 3rd March.
***IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL DELIVERY CUSTOMERS***
A full delivery service is planned for Monday with the web shop opening at 10am Saturday until 10pm Sunday night with deliveries also operating everyday next week.
Whilst we have been incredibly frustrated over the past 48hr unfortunately there is nothing we can do, this has been the first occasion Flowervision (Bristol) has not opened and that on consecutive days no delivery service has operated. The safety and welfare of cash & carry staff and drivers combined with the fact we want to be able to offer you a full service throughout a very important forthcoming week for the flower trade are factors we have considered together with the actual possibility of reaching a large number of destinations.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL, OUR TWITER AND WEB SITE NEWS FOR UPDATES REGARDING DELIVERIES OVER THE COMING WEEK.
Assuring you of our best intentions at all times,
FLOWERVISION (BRISTOL) LTD
