South African gifting and floral service, NetFlorist, has restructured its service and delivery offering for the duration of the national lockdown, prioritising essential goods only.
The delivery platform has restricted customer orders on gifts and flowers for the duration of the 21-day lockdown, stating that it will be focusing on the delivery of essential goods only. In a Twitter post on Thursday, 26 March 2020, NetFlorist stated, “Our site will only be open for essential orders and deliveries. You can, however, still place an order for non-essential goods for delivery after Friday, 17 April 2020.”
Products currently available for delivery include baby products, coffee and teas, toiletries, biltong, dried fruits and nuts, seasonal fruits and seasonal vegetables. The website also indicates that grocery item deliveries will be introduced soon, however, the organisation is yet to confirm if it will take place during the 21-day lockdown period.
The company has ensured customers that it will adhere to regulations stipulated by President Ramaphosa regarding deliveries during this time. Drivers have been instructed to make contactless drop-offs and uphold stringent hygiene procedures when handling all items.
Customers have applauded NetFlorist on social media for its considerations, with Jacqueline Sampson stating, “So impressed that NetFlorist is forward-thinking during the coronavirus outbreak and is now doing fresh food deliveries! Only in Johannesburg and Pretoria… please consider Cape Town soon! Well done! Super impressed.”
