Invercargill hardware retailer E Hayes and Sons is 100% committed to the Government’s lockdown restrictions in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 and have closed their Dee Street store accordingly.

However, following the Governments recent easing of restrictions regarding the supply of approved Essential Products, the company has been able to put together an ‘Essential Products Bubble Team’ in order to take online orders for a range of products and to organise contactless courier delivery around Invercargill and throughout New Zealand.

Essential Products are designated by the Government as those which ensure people staying at home during the lockdown can stay warm, safe and healthy.

“As we are heading into Autumn and Winter, it’s important for people to be able to access a range of products which can help them deal with the days and weeks ahead” says Debbie Hodges, General Manager of E Hayes, who leads the Essential Products team.

“These are difficult times for everyone, and it’s important that people have a level of certainty that they can still buy items which can solve some of their most immediate and pressing needs.” she says.

A growing range of items such as batteries, lightbulbs, heaters, locks and home security, tools, first aid kits and more are now available for purchase through three methods:

While email and online orders can be made at any time, the team will only be processing/taking orders between 10am till 12pm, Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. ALL orders received will ONLY be actioned during these times.

Once actioned, orders are delivered to the customers gate by an approved courier company within 3-5 days, depending on the location within New Zealand. This is a CONTACTLESS process involving strict hygiene and distancing guidelines.

E Hayes has a long and proud history of serving customers throughout Invercargill, Southland and New Zealand. This service underlines a commitment to their customers and communities that is reflected in their motto: “Where People Come First”.

“I’m incredibly proud of our entire team in the way they have all pulled together in this time of crisis” says Debbie.

“There is definitely a Southland spirit, determined to show that we are all in this together, and together we can BEAT it”
