Covid-19: philoro closes all branches until further notice

Covid-19: philoro closes all branches until further notice 3/27/2020

Update: March 27, 2020

Dear customers,

Due to the current Covid 19 situation and the protective measures adopted by the government, we have to inform you that the philoro branches will remain closed until further notice.
 
The good news: The philoro webshop and our logistics are still open and you can order. However, with the restriction that you cannot currently pick up your order in the branches or that you cannot bring sales to philoro in the branches, but can only have them delivered.

However, Österreichische Post AG no longer personally delivers parcels to the recipients. Therefore, from now on we will only send the parcels to Post branches and Post/BAWAG P.S.K. branches too. We cannot deliver to the pick-up points postal partners - the shops of postal partners have closed. If the shipment has arrived at the post office of your choice, you will be notified by email and you can collect your package from the post office. Either you enter the address of the post office of your choice as the "New Address" for the delivery, or our logisticians change your delivery address to a post office near you. 

Our logistics employees adhere to the highest safety and hygiene standards. This includes, among other things, regular and thorough hand washing and disinfection, as well as wearing disposable gloves when packing your orders.

If you do not want your order to be sent to you, we offer you to store your order in our high-security warehouse free of charge until we can open our branches again and you can pick up your order.

However, there may be delivery delays beyond our control and delays in the processing of inquiries and orders. We ask for your understanding and endeavor to process your inquiries as quickly as possible.

Stay healthy!
 
Your philoro team.
