Update on Covid-19 from Gordon Harris: 24 March 2020

TEMPORARY CLOSURE

In line with NZ Govt. requirements:

ALL GORDON HARRIS STORES ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED.

WE ARE ALSO CLOSED FOR ONLINE WEB ORDERS.

WE WILL REOPEN AS SOON AS WE ARE ALLOWED.

Art enables us as a society to pull through trying times. Toni Morrison, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, had this to say about an artist’s role in times of crisis:

This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language (Art!). That is how civilizations heal.

May all our customers continue to find strength in creation!

 

Keep safe and stay positive!
