COVID-19 Shipping and Fulfilment Update - May 22nd
Posted by Michael O'Brien on 22nd May 2020
We hope that you, your family, and your friends continue to be in good health.
Chaosium has fulfilment warehouses around the world (USA, UK, Australia, Poland, Canada), and throughout the Covid-19 crisis fortunately we've been able to keep shipping products as normal, with only a few exceptions. We're pleased to announce we can once again ship to Norway.
We will announce any changes to our shipping and fulfilment status as the situation continues to unfold.
Spring Cleaning Warehouse Sale
Our spring-cleaning warehouse sale is still going on, and there's lots to choose from at special prices so we can clear some shelf space. Please note that products are only available at certain warehouse locations.
As part of our recent upgrade to the Chaosium website the inventory locations for each title are now included on "Add to Cart" button. We hope this will assist when ordering from our site.
Remember, if you buy a PDF direct from Chaosium, you get the full price of the PDF off the printed book if you decide to buy it later.
Gen Con Cancellation
As you may have already seen or heard, Gen Con has announced the cancellation of Gen Con 2020 this August in Indianapolis, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As an exhibitor of very long standing at Gen Con, running hundreds of events, Chaosium is of course disappointed this year's event cannot proceed. But we appreciate that the organisers considered everyone's health and safety to be the foremost priority in making this difficult call.
Gen Con has announced a virtual convention during the original dates (July 30 – Aug 2), and Chaosium will be looking ways we can actively participate!
