Let The Festivities Begin
Firstly, on behalf of all here at Derek Rose, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you can put your feet up and enjoy some much-needed time off with your loved ones.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our customers, for your support. Put simply, a business like ours couldn’t have survived in the Covid world without your custom. However not only do so many of you choose our products, but you have also been kind enough to support us in many other positive ways: great online reviews; word of mouth recommendations; and, in many cases, a friendly, kind tone when talking and chatting with our team members. These small gestures are appreciated and help lift spirits for all involved. So, a sincere thank you from me to you. Our team. Thank you all for your hard work, passion and dedication. Besides doing all you could to help us weather this storm, keep our customers happy and deliver great products and service, you have also shown respect and consideration for the welfare of both yourselves and each other. We put in place stringent measures to protect against Covid and everyone has embraced the rules without a fuss with the result that we are all well.
As we approach the year end I am conscious of how tragic this year has been for so many. While we have much to be grateful for here at Derek Rose, we are all aware of how many people around the world have suffered since Covid-19 started.
I would like to extend our condolences, on behalf of myself and all the team here, to those of you who have had the misfortune to lose someone this year. One of our team members lost her father to Covid recently and this has brought home how challenging this period and illness have been.
We also extend our best wishes to those who are suffering economically or professionally as a result of Covid. There are many people in our industry whose lives have been shattered by the economic impact of Covid.
I look forward to a healthier, happier 2021 for all of us. The world has changed but we’re changing with it and, as a species, we are remarkably resilient.
Be well, stay safe and good luck for 2021.
CEO, Derek Rose
