We are all grappling with the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19. Our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted and affected. At Zulily, our resolute first priority continues to be the health and safety of our team members, customers, and vendors, as well as our broader community.
We are closely watching developments as various state leaders implement restrictions and recommendations for mitigating the spread of Covid-19. Generally, it is our understanding at this time that e-commerce (i.e., non-brick and mortar) retail and the fulfillment centers that support them may remain open as essential businesses. At Zulily we have taken steps to enhance the health and safety of our team members.
- We’re carefully following all appropriate safety procedures outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We’ve implemented work-from-home policies, social distancing practices, and preventative actions and measures to enhance cleaning and sanitization practices at all our locations, and we’re instituting use of temperature checks across our locations.
- There are team members that remain onsite to fulfill the critical operations of our business. These teams will receive additional compensation and flexibility to address the needs of their own families.
We value our partnership with your warehouses as part of our e-commerce supply chain distribution network and your efforts to fulfill customer needs in this critical time. We will do our best to support your efforts to continue to supply consumer goods for sale on Zulily, as fewer people are able to shop in physical locations. Please reach out with any questions or suggestions on how we can enhance our partnership during this difficult time.
