YOU MUST READ this important information before ordering!
A PERSONAL APOLOGY TO OUR VALUED MAIL ORDER CUSTOMERS
Please accept my personal apology to you if you experienced any delay in receiving your Christmas order. At the very last minute we were left in the lurch by our appointed courier DPD.
It caused everyone at Grasmere Gingerbread® a lot of stress and anguish as we pride ourselves on ALWAYS keeping ALL our customers satisfied.
Thankfully, at the very last minute, we were able to delegate our outstanding orders to APC who pledged to do their utmost to beat the Christmas delivery deadline.
If you experienced any problems at all with your Christmas order please call us on Tel: 015394 35428 or alternatively, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have already instigated a full review of our mail order delivery provision for the New Year.
Please bear with us!
Assuring you of our best intentions at all times and have a peaceful and happy 2018.
Co-owner Grasmere Gingerbread®
Grasmere Gingerbread is freshly-baked every day following an old-fashioned recipe and therefore has a very limited shelf life. The quality of Grasmere Gingerbread will significantly deteriorate after ONE week.
Recent testing has shown that it keeps better in a fridge/cold environment in an airtight container BUT we still recommend consumption within a maximum of one week.
Our artisan bakery produces Grasmere Gingerbread fresh each morning for that day’s dispatch and there is a limited number of parcels that can be processed. Therefore, we highly recommend that you place your order as soon as possible when booking your Grasmere Gingerbread delivery date.
Order NOW so you will not be disappointed; we close dates of dispatch once we meet our capacity – sorry.*
