February & March 2020 Update
It’s been a busy couple of months at Premier Cane Furniture, what seemed like a hectic February now looks like a spa day in comparison to what March entailed. With the UK government putting in place a national lockdown we spent the majority of the month dealing with the logistical problems caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. With updates coming out every day we have a dedicated blog that can keep you up to date with the latest opening times, delivery schedules and general updates here: Corona Virus Blog
Before we begin, we at Premier Cane Furniture would like to thank all of the key workers during this trailing time, the NHS staff, the delivery drivers and shop workers that keep this country ticking, you are the heroes and heart of this country.
All things considered, February was still a busy month for us, it was picture month which meant we had to take 100's of images of our exclusive imported furniture. Having so many variations and fabric combinations we decided the best course of action would be to take all of the photos in our Leicestershire showroom and then use software to manually remove the background. This allowed us to get good quality photos without hauling over 10 suites to studio. Here is a side by side comparison of the original image and the cropped version of our exclusive Washington Suite.
As you can see the hard work does pay off, these images will be used for the entire year on a range of promotional material from brochures to website images. It was fortunate that we took the photos in February as it would have been a near impossible job in March.
Additionally, the latest catalogues and product images from our suppliers all came through during February, which meant every image on the website had to be updated with the latest images. Here is a Daro outdoor set looking it's best in the sun.
Talking of hard work, March has been a very tough period for many small businesses around the UK and with the national lockdown ongoing for the considerable future it is hard to predict when business will restart as usual. However, to beat this dreadful virus involves a team effort from everyone in the UK, here is a link to the NHS for more information and resources on Covid-19.
Obviously this global event is having a significant impact on our supply chains which we are working on from home to try and come up with the best solutions for when the restrictions are lifted.
Meanwhile, we wish everyone to stay safe and to respect the measures put in place by the government. If you are an existing customer and you have any questions about your order please feel free to give us a call on 01163192140 and we will personally update you, we aim to get in touch with all of our customers over the coming weeks, you're patience is appreciated.
