 The day has finally arrived!  The state of North Carolina has began the slow process of lifting mandatory "stay at home" orders.  With this implementation of phase 1, Wipelli will be able to return to normal working conditions while still maintaining strict social distancing requirements. 

The important takeaways from Phase 1:
1)  Wipelli will be back at full working staff, and through it never changed throughout COVID-19 we still like to stay it;  We will always be available during business hours to help you with your leather needs.  
2) Wipelli will continue to operate as normal: 8:30a - 5:00p M-F
3) Orders will be processed, and if applicable shipped same day
4) Strict hygiene practices and social distancing requirements will still be in effect and practiced throughout the workday.

 In accordance with the newly applied requirements by the state of North Carolina and Governor Roy Cooper, Wipelli is required to minimize working staff size as to maximize and comply with social distancing requirements. 

The important takeaways from this ordnance:
1)  Wipelli will be rotating our working staff so someone will always be available to help you with your leather needs.  
2) Wipelli will continue to operate as normal: 8:30a - 5:00p M-F
3) Orders will still be processed, and if applicable shipped same day
4) We will still continue to follow our newly implemented rules and stringent hygiene practices

The Wipelli team realizes how important it is to keep everyone's health and safety in the forefront of our minds while also being able to stay open to provide for your leather needs.  This is why we have implemented new rules among our small staff for more stringent hygiene practices.

For the foreseeable future Wipelli will continue to operate as normal: 8:30a - 5:00p M-F.  Due to early steps taken we were fortunate to secure unprecedented high levels of inventory that we hope will aid our customers in stabilizing the possible rocky market ahead.  We have also recently learned that OUR tanneries will continue to operate with normal transportation services for the foreseeable future.
To help us better serve you through this unsure time please let us know as early as possible for any large quantity orders that you may have. 
We are closely monitoring the situation locally and if changes need to be made we will act accordingly and in a timely manner.
Thank you so much for all you do and remember to stay safe!
