In light of the current pandemic, Winthrop’s Whimsies has decided to put a hold on production at this time.
We have stopped local deliveries to limit exposure both to our customers and ourselves. Likewise, we are stopping shipping to help ease a small part of the workload on the shipping services to prioritize essential shipments such as medicines, personal protective equipment, and other supplies.
This is not an easy decision to make, but we feel that it is the right decision. By practicing social distancing, and helping prioritize essential needs over ourselves is for the best for everyone.
Soon as we can, we will be reopening, with an expanded line of the fabulous candies you love so much. But as the saying goes, “needs must as the devil drives.” The moment we get the all-clear, we’ll be here, and we hope you will be too.
Unlike every other business out there, we aren’t going to beat you over the head with the reminders of washing your hands and staying home. All we ask is that you take care of yourself, think before you act, be kind, and always #GiveJoy.
Remember, we love you.
