A leading timber product supplier Zest 4 Leisure is relaunching its Zest Direct home delivery service to online retailer customers with the aim of ensuring its customers are able to supply garden products and meet the increased demand in the lockdown period.
The company’s goal is to support its online retailers with the roll out of services to deliver garden products to customers’ homes which begins next week (w/c 13 April) with the first home deliveries scheduled to be with customers by the end of that week.
Simon Davison, head of commercial development, said: “With the current lockdown and people spending time at home, the importance of gardening has been recognised and being able to purchase garden products including “grow your own” items plays an important role in maintaining many people’s health and well-being during this period. People in the gardening industry are coming together to deliver a service that will support this and I am delighted that we too can lend our support.”
”Working with our operations team, we have done a lot to adapt to this changing environment and introduced stringent conditions and working practices at our warehouse and distribution centre to comply with social distancing and hygiene requirements. The health and safety of our staff will always be paramount and steps have been taken in conjunction with Government guidance to ensure this is in place.”
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, Zest 4 Leisure decided to suspend business temporarily. Using its home delivery arm to support online retailers, Zest Direct will now operate its usual nationwide delivery service of its range of timber garden products and hopes to deliver some gardening satisfaction in these unprecedented times.
