Company Announcement 01.12.2020

Dear Customer,

We hope you are well and keeping safe.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all businesses across the world which has called for many of us to adapt and make immediate changes in order to support our customers.

After many years of providing products for your businesses, homes, and cherished life events, Country Baskets are entering a new chapter that requires a refocus of our business objectives.

To enable us to evolve effectively, we regret to inform you that we are permanently closing our Gateshead, Bristol, and Loughborough stores with immediate effect.

We thank all instore teams, in these locations for the years of hard work and dedication and we wish them the best of luck for the future.

We would also like to announce that we are now part of the APAC Family Business.

APAC Group is one of the leading importers and distributors of floristry, party, event decor, and horticultural products in the UK. Combining Country Baskets' experience with APAC’s more than 60 years of trade will allow us to move forward with confidence and security.

Whilst we are now part of the APAC Family, Country Baskets will continue to trade as normal, serving existing and new gold customers, as well as the general public.

Although the next couple of years are going to be challenging for everyone, we are looking forward to what the future holds for Country Baskets.

If you have any questions please direct message us or email help@countrybaskets.co.uk and we will respond as soon as possible.

We would also like to take this time to thank each and every one of our customers for their continued support throughout the years.

Kind Regards,

Sarah Wragg | Managing Director
