FAQ during COVID-19

Why there is a delay in the deliveries?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our stores have been temporarily closed, and there have been more visitors at than usual. As a result, our online store is currently bustling and our customer service is unfortunately congested. We are constantly working on resolving this issue, but at the moment the average delivery time of orders is 5 to 12 working days (+shipping). Thank you for your patience.

Our main priority is to safeguard the health and safety of our customers and employees. We carefully follow the local authorities’ instructions when planning the safe reopening of our stores. In Scandinavia, Germany, Australia and Finland, the original instructions from the authorities differed, but restrictions on openings of non-essential businesses have been lifted (if there were such in place), schools and day cares are opening (if they were closed), guidelines on number of people allowed to gather at one time have been updated, among others. All these changes make it possible for us to consider the safe opening of our retail stores, with elevated safety measures in place.
