Welcome to Locked Up RC!
We talk tech, do a little work on our RCs and occasionally have a little surprise!
You can also watch them all on our YouTube Channel!
We ARE open and shipping orders. We will remain open until either the USPS stops picking up the mail OR someone gets sick. The chances of that are less than you might think. We are a SMALL business that is NOT open to the public.
We are taking EVERY precaution recommended by the CDC, WHO and then some. Way more "and then some" actually.
You may not know it but I, Patrick Norton, am a cancer survivor. In addition I had a massive pulmonary embolism about 12 years ago. So, I am hyper aware of the situation and going overboard with precautions. We are hand washing and sanitizing fools over here.
Nobody is working in a room together here. Every order is being packed by a single person. Anything you receive from us has gone through a 9 day quarantine before being packed. Yes. 9 days. We have set aside warehouse space so that anything incoming sits there for 9 days. Delivery drivers know to drop items off in the "blue zone". Items we manufacture are also sitting for 9 days before we stock them on the site.
Is it overkill? Probably. The latest we saw was that this virus does not last as long on surfaces as originally thought, but we are still sticking to the original numbers. 9 days was the most we saw quoted for any surface originally. It appears that has dropped down, which is good: https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/new-coronavirus-stable-hours-surfaces
Having said that, we, like other small businesses, do NOT have huge cash reserves that will allow us to stay afloat without your support. If you are fearful to receive mail or packages right now, we DO offer gift certificates:
I know these are stressful times.
I know being stuck at home sucks.
We are right there with all of you and firmly believe that we will get through this if we all stick together.
Thank you for all your support over the years and we look forward to seeing you guys when we can get back out!
