Specialists in Bonsai Trees, Care and Information - Kaizen Bonsai
Time to take a break - April 9-13 inclusive
Kaizen Bonsai have had our most successful quarter ever with over 2000 orders fulfilled in the last three months. We are so thankful to all our loyal customers and supporters that have made our little business such a success. Sadly now we have to take a break. Our hard-working family deserve a few days off and so we will be closed over the Easter period. We will not be available from Thursday April 9-13 inclusive. Orders placed after Sunday 5 April will probably NOT SHIP until the week beginning 14 April. We will have a backlog of orders then and you can expect a significant delay in receiving your goods. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding. Business people are humans too and deserve a little downtime.
