    Currently working with minimal staff so evening session would be good if possible. Thanks

    During the lockdown our online purchases increased significantly. Like most other people it gave us time to spring clean our home, re-organise our possessions and purchase items that improved the home. New photo frames and storage boxes were top of mind. Time was spent at Bunnings, my favourite place and home office supplies were also important. Of the online providers, Amazon was the most popular. They have a good website, delivery and returns policy. The issue for small players is matching this service level and competing with the Amazons and specialist online businesses. It can be done, but you’d have to be fully committed and not just doing it as an afterthought.
