Dear TRW Crew,

Florida Governor, Ron Desantis, issued an executive order yesterday afternoon (4/1/2020) that stated that “all persons in Florida shall limit their movements and personal interactions outside of their home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities” for 30 days starting this Thursday 4/2/2020 at Midnight.  Click here for a link to the full order.

For consideration of what is critical/essential it is our understanding the Federal Department of Homeland Security provisions are to be the standard. Click here for a link to the guidelines on what is considered by the DHS as “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce”.

From our understanding of reading the above guidelines, The Rhinestone World Inc.  is an “essential business” under the Commercial Facilities section (pg. 14 bullet point 2) of the ADVISORY MEMORANDUM ON IDENTIFICATION OF ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WORKERS DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE and will remain open and responsive to your ecommerce needs as this crisis unfolds or we are given different direction from governmental authorities.

Beginning 4/2/2020 at midnight all non-essential TRW employees have been instructed to work from home and all walk in/store front services have been suspended until further notice. TRW will continue to operate on-site with the limited essential employees needed to maintain the shipping and receiving needs of our on-line customers.

Under Governor Ron Desantis’s executive order ‘All businesses or organizations are encouraged to provide delivery, carry-out or curbside service outside of the business or organization, of orders placed online or via telephone, to the greatest extent practicable.”

Therefore, curbside pick-up is available (Mon. thru Fri. 9 AM to 4 PM) to local customers who have placed and paid for their orders online and selected local store pick up as their delivery option. When you arrive on premise please call 941-755-1696 Ext. 1007 to access our limited contact curbside pick-up service and your order will be delivered to you in your car while you wait.
