UPDATE 23/03

As far as we are aware, courier services will continue to operate as an "essential service" so we can continue to accept orders.

UPDATE 22/03

Our offer to send out LEGO sets to those in isolation continues. We will be sending out one LEGO set a day to people in isolation. You can enter here.

UPDATE 16/03

It's business as usual here at Brick Store, though with reduced flights into the country we may not be able to stock new LEGO sets as quickly as we'd like.

We continue to process orders as normal, with courier pick-ups at 12pm each day.

Here is the latest information from CourierPost:

While the overall risk of transmission of any virus is low in our day to day business operations, it’s the right thing to do to limit close physical contact with others during this time. This is consistent with the Government’s advice.  

Signing for deliveries

NZ Post couriers (including CourierPost and Pace) will knock on the door as usual and step back two metres (or as far back as safe). They will wait for someone to come to the door and greet them as usual. They will then ask for the recipient’s name (to record proof of delivery) and leave the parcel on the doorstep. The person receiving the parcel will not sign for the delivery directly. 

If no one comes to the door and there is no Parcel Leave service in place, the courier will follow the standard process which is to leave a card to call, with details of the delivery and return the parcel to depot. 

You can arrange an "authority to leave" with NZ Post here.
