Since Monday we have now transititioned to stage four and are no longer open to the public.

In the past few weeks as the daily numbers worsened we were already keeping the closed sign up on the door and were iterating Covid19 best practice with full sign in and sanitation and social distance procedures.

During stage three there were three shops open in South Carlton ... IGA, the Post Office, and Carlton Audio Visual ... the good thing is that parking has never been better.

We have been operating under strict social distance procedures and are equipped with hand sanitiser dispensars and masks and alcohol swabs. We have somewhat limited our normal hours of operation to 5 o clock each evening and have reduced sales staff presence. The rabbit warren of our buildings enabled us to disperse our workforce away from the meet and greet area of 164 Lygon St.

Needless to say our phone orders and internet sales have become pre eminent. We give excellent phone by the way .. if you alllow us the time for discussion we can generally select a product in advance of your own impressions with a very high degree of accuracy to suit a particular client. 

The Carlton Audio Visual Install teams for AV and IT are in particular demand. We are currently finalising the terms and conditions of their available engagement under stage four lockdown conditions though.

Our H.O.P.E program ... Home Office Preparation Enabling has been working well. This is in ackowledgement that Covid19 has incurred sudden changes in our work/home/study/play environment that will in many cases be permanent.
