ALERT LEVEL 3 UPDATE & KS CURBSIDE COLLECT
From Tuesday 28th April, our online store is up and running at full capacity and we are able to ship all items from our collections. We have also launched KS Curbside Collect, a contactless collection alternative from our Newmarket, Ponsonby, Wellington and Christchurch Central stores.
The health and safety of our customers, staff and couriers is of utmost importance, so rest assured we are implementing strict safety measures and adhering to all policies set by the government.
We have the lovely Leo at our Auckland workroom and our beloved Retail Managers working solo behind the scenes in stores to process your Curbside Collect orders. They are following all health and safety protocol including PPE and regular sanitisation of the working environment.
We have contactless pickups arranged with our courier drivers from all locations, with no face-to-face interaction, and our couriers have also introduced safer measures for delivery to you at this time. Couriers will knock on the door, but then wait a safe distance for you to open the door. They will ask for your name as confirmation without signature and leave the parcel on the doorstep. Our Curbside Collect service follows a similar protocol, for more information read below.
Please be patient with us and our courier drivers as delivery timeframes may take longer than usual.
For more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re so grateful for your continued support of Kate Sylvester and we look forward to delivering you your favourite Love Letters pieces soon.
We’re always here for a chat, phone, email, live chat, DM us at @kate_sylvester or message us on Facebook for instant service.
Stay safe and take care,
NEW // CURBSIDE COLLECT
At Alert Level 3, Kate Sylvester is offering a contactless Curbside Collect service from our Newmarket, Ponsonby, Wellington and Christchurch Central stores.
Call your favourite Kate Sylvester store and place a phone order between 10am and 2pm from Monday- Saturday, and we can arrange a same day order collection within 30 minutes of your call.
If you call outside of our 10am-2pm collection hours we will arrange for your purchase to be completed and collected the following day.
Please feel free to call and check on the availability of an item in store, or you can view each garment’s availability on our online store listed in the product details under the Curbside Collect Availability header.
Curbside Collect is a contactless service much like a courier service, where customers who have purchased an item will knock on the store’s front door, then wait a safe distance from the entrance for our staff member to open the door. Our staff member will then ask for your full name and item purchased as confirmation, and leave the parcel on the doorstep for you to take away with you.
The safety of our customers and staff is of the utmost importance to us and our team are following all health and safety protocol including PPE and regular sanitisation of the working environment.
We are also accepting Ecommerce returns via our Curbside Collect service. If you would like to return an item, please call ahead to let a staff member know you will be delivering. Due to the contactless nature of deliveries we are unable to process on-the-spot exchanges, but we will be in touch promptly to arrange.
Our store phones will be in service from 10 - 5pm each day, so please reach out if you have any queries or questions.
