We wanted to take the time to address the current climate in China, and be transparent about what that means to the timeline for our expected shipments. As you may know, there are areas within China that have undergone a strict and intensive COVID lockdown over the last few weeks (read more about that here.) This lockdown has not only affected our company, but many others with factories located in China. While not all areas are shut down, the majority of our facilities fall within the lockdown regions.
What does this mean for us? Unfortunately, it means the shipments of products such as Cabernet, Marshmallow, Peach Tea, CandyBar and PCB replacements have been delayed due to the constraints of the lockdown. Our facility in China is hopeful the lockdown is going to end after their labor day holiday (May 1st) and that restrictions will be lifted on May 4th, but that is still tentative.
May 4th is a very tentative and optimistic date, however, even when the lockdowns are lifted we are unsure how shipping will be affected because there is currently a back log of worldwide shipments just waiting to go. The frustration is felt everywhere. We know that you're looking for updates, so are we, so are our factories. We will make it our priority to provide updates as we receive them, and we hope you can understand that we truly share your frustrations.
We know that probably wasn't the news you wanted to hear, BUT we still have some exciting upcoming May releases...
