Gardners suspends new orders

UK-based distributor Gardners has suspended taking new orders for physical products, citing the safety and wellbeing of its workforce as the reason for the decision.

An announcement on the Gardners website reads: ‘It is with great sadness that we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend taking new orders for physical product at Gardners due to the current Coronavirus Virus Pandemic, however our digital services will be unaffected. We will be working hard to clear all outstanding orders over the coming days, so any existing orders should be processed.’

Gardners said it had become ‘increasingly more difficult’ to continue to provide its services to the book trade as the Covid-19 crisis develops. The company added it will ‘be looking to see what key services we can turn back on as soon as possible’.
