Dear Origin family,
The time has come and it is with great regret that we have chosen to close our business for the safety of our employees and for the protection of our wider society in general.
Our intention is to do what we can for committed deliveries this week (date posted 26th March), but to have ceased operations entirely by Friday 27th March.
Thank you to everyone for being so supportive and understanding during this difficult time while we navigate through uncharted territory. Making the decision to close Origin for a temporary period has been one of the toughest we have ever had to make, but we believe it is the right decision for the safety and well-being of the whole Origin family as well as the wider community.
At this point, our aim is essentially to hibernate until such point as the pandemic recedes sufficiently, and government advice changes so we’re able to return stronger than before. However, at this point, that timescale is unknown.
Please keep watching this space for updates for when we can return and re-open.
We understand that for many, the lack of structure and routine will be hard to deal with. So, while you are at home, there are many things you can look at doing (not to mention home schooling children if that is a responsibility you have at the moment!), some of which we’ve pulled together in this guide here: https://origin-global.com/wellbeing-in-isolation
We will be back as soon as we can, but in the meantime, we wish everyone the very best of luck.
Follow the advice, stay indoors and safe.
With very best wishes to you all.
