To BLENKO'S Valued Collectors and Fans,
It has not been an easy decision but we conclude we must act on the side of caution.
Our Annual Warehouse Sale scheduled for March 21, 22 and 23 has been delayed.
With increasing concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in America, we have decided that the best course of action is to consider the safety of our customers and staff first and err on the side of caution rather than risk.
Deciding this was difficult as there is little factual information to consider. Many of you diligently waited for this opportunity and have made travel arrangements around visiting our campus. The possible risks far outweigh our desire to proceed.
Unfortunately, the reality is that hundreds and hundreds of people come to the BLENKO campus from all over the country and participate in this highly social and hands on event which will result in a huge risk for spreading the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our local community and beyond. We hope you appreciate this decision as we made it with YOU in mind.
The event will tentatively be rescheduled for the weekend of April 17th pending the way this concern unfolds.
This will allow approximately 30 days for us to monitor the situation locally and nationally so that we can make a better and more informed decisions regarding our events and social gatherings moving forward.
As a small consolation, this coming weekend, we will be having a special online only Warehouse Sale that will include a large stock of second quality 384 Water Bottles in a variety of colors.
We hope you will be able to use this opportunity to fill your collection with Blenko without putting yourself at risk of becoming ill.
In addition, those of you who purchased tickets for early admittance will still have that option. If the rescheduled date conflicts with your schedule, we are happy to issue a full refund for the ticket.
Again, we do not make this decision lightly but believe it is the wisest course of action and hope you can respect that caution.
As always, if there are any questions please reach out to us at Blenko. Your patronage is never taken for granted!
