An update on our status of operations

The state of California has issued a statewide "safer-at-home" mandate to stop the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to take online orders, but the mandate gives impacted businesses an additional 24 hours to wrap up loose ends, so today (3/20) will be our last day shipping out orders from our warehouse before our HQ and shops close. We are currently working to set up our logistics partner to ship out all orders after today, however there will be some delays as we work on getting them set up safely - we'll keep you posted here as things progress. If you don't get a shipping notification by 4:30pm PST 3/20, please feel free to reach out to us at hello@pfcandleco.com with any questions, but as this is an ongoing situation know that we may not have an update just yet.
 
Right now, our main priority is taking care of our staff. It is our goal to keep everyone paid as long as we can. If you are looking for ways to support (and are able) we will still be taking orders on pfcandleco.com. We also offer digital gift cards on our site here, or, head to pfcandleco.com/stockists to find a small business near you that carries P.F. and may still be taking orders for pick up or able to ship.
 
These are really uncertain, scary times, but we just want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you. So many of you have shown up in the last week, whether it was to place an order on our website, share with us how P.F. was making you feel more comfortable at home, or simply just sending us messages over DMs and comments. We're not really sure what the future holds, but we feel so supported by the community that we've built here, and that gives us a lot of hope. Our owner and creative director, Kristen, reminded us these last few weeks that she founded P.F. during a recession, and while this is something none of us ever could have imagined we'd have to experience as a business, together we feel confident that we can come out of this stronger than ever.
 
We'll continue to keep you updated as we can. In the meantime, stay healthy and safe out there.
