Since the shutdown began 10 months ago, we've been extremely thankful for the support we've received from our customers and staff. We've done our best to be of service to our clientele while working within our state and local Covid restrictions.
Due to several factors, we’ve made the difficult decision to retire, and our goal is to close the business in March 2021. After 50 years in business, we did not come to this lightly, and we are sad to relay this news to our loyal clientele and beloved staff. However, our lease is up, and the workload under the pandemic restrictions is more than challenging. Our hope is to continue to serve all our customers as well as possible during this limited time.
We are in discussions with various parties about taking over the distribution of at least the best-selling Nectarine products. We hope to have some news on that soon.
In the meantime, we are taking orders until February 12, 2021 or until our inventory is depleted. Please evaluate your inventory needs and place all your orders online. We have significantly discounted many great products.
As of January 6, 2021, all orders will be handled as follows:
We will take orders until February 12, 2021, or until our inventory is depleted. We cannot accommodate future ship dates; ASAP shipping only.
- Place all orders online. You can only view sale pricing online.
- Allow for extra processing time, because we expect to have a large number of orders to ship.
- 20 gallon and other special discounts are no longer available.
- We do not guarantee that orders will ship complete. Please note in the Comments section of your online order if you do not want your order filled if it is incomplete.
- All purchases are final sale. FOB Richmond, CA.
- As usual, we will charge your credit card before the order is shipped. Please do not place orders that exceed your credit card limit.
We appreciate all the support that you and all our customers have shown us over the past five decades. And we will miss working with you. Our mother founded the business and was proud of the small part she played in the lives of thousands of employees, retailers and consumers. And we are, too.
