Tokopedia sudah re-stock. Apabila habis, berarti kuota sudah penuh. Tidak perlu panic buying, inshaallah stock selalu terjaga dengan baik. Penipisan stock hanya karena musim panen sudah lewat, seperti jeruk, manggis, mangga. Memang musimnya sudah lewat. Di tante sayur 90% harga tetap terjaga stabil, tidak ada kenaikan kecuali harga jeruk karena dari sananya naik. Tapi, demi mengurangi kontak karyawan dengan orang luar. Maka orderan dibatasi hanya 75 order per hari. DILARANG KERAS MENJUAL KEMBALI barang tante tanpa seijin tante sayur. Cabang official hanya ada di Bekasi dan Bandung. Tante juga tidak suka keadaan seperti ini, membatasi pembelian. Tapi demi kesehatan semuanya, mohon ibu ibu maklum. Bukan penjualan yang dikejar, tapi sustainibility. Di satu sisi, ada dilema.. pengen tutup toko tapi ada puluhan desa yang bergantung makan pada tante sayur, sehingga kami juga harus tetap menjaga supaya pasokan harus terus terserap. Saat ini, dapat dipastikan petani semua masih sehat wal afiat. Mari ibu-ibu harap memahami bagaimana mata rantai ini terbentuk. Mari bersama tidak melakukan panic buying, beli secukupnya (jgn sampai self quarantine jadi gembrot), dan selalu berdoa semoga cepat berlalu. Tips belanja di tante sayur : 1. Kalau sekompleks, se gedung apartemen, daerahnya deket an, bisa beli barengan. Paket diambil grab car, ditaro di pintu masing-masing tanpa harus halo secara fisik. 2. Boleh pesen hampers, tapi hampers dikirim dari rumah/tempat masing-masing yah. Saat ini Tante tidak memfasilitasi pengiriman banyak-banyak. Maklum doooong gaes.... kan udah dikurangin kuota 3. Maaf banget... buat para langganan setia, mohon agar bisa membatasi jajan... yang biasa jajan tiap hari kurangin jadi 3 hari sekali boleh yah, kasih ke ebuuu ebuuu lain. 4. Kalau dicancel, makasih yah... nanti mau kasih ke ibu ibu lain๐Ÿ˜ฌ Semoga kita terus diberikan sehat๐Ÿ˜ฌ Yang sudah belanja mohon di klik selesai atau klik complain. Jangan lupa kasih ulasan baik yak.... biar dapet diamond dari @tokopedia Yang belum klik, Jajanan di kacangin sama tante ๐Ÿ˜ (boong deh...)
