We are happy to report that Fireside Lodge Furniture has been designated an “essential business” by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development and has fully resumed production as of today, April 20, 2020. This comes ahead of the expiration of the statewide order to "stay-at-home" that is effective until May 4, 2020.
What this means for lead times and orders
In light of this, we are able to decrease lead times back to their normal level for any new orders placed. Furthermore, as the disruption to our production was relatively minimal, many existing orders will be able to ship on or before their originally provided firm ship dates. If you have questions about your order, please contact your account manager and we will be happy to bring you up-to-date.
How are we protecting our team?
As the continued health of our team members and customers is of the highest priority to us, we have enacted a plan of prevention and working parameters within our production facilities that ensures social distancing at the workplace while limiting exposure. Additionally, we are instituting an aggressive cleaning/disinfecting protocol for both internal operations and all outgoing shipments.
Thank you to our team members for their commitment and perseverance, and thank you to our customers for continuing to support American businesses through this difficult time!
