An update from Mark at Basket Butler

During these times, as we face the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and we are all practicing self distancing as much as possible, I am here to help you. Like you, I have a family at home and I want you to be rest assured that as always, I am taking all precautions to stay healthy so I can be there when you need me. I am using the best safety practices when building and delivering your gift baskets because I have built my reputation and business on my integrity, and have everyone’s health and safety as my number one priority. I have had an influx in my business since the outbreak with clients that wish to express gratitude to various healthcare professionals, nurses stations in hospitals, ER departments, and assisted living facilities. I have created baskets that are well-suited for groups to enjoy with fresh fruit, snacks, sweet treats and assorted goodies. Below is my latest creation from an out-of-state client who sent this basket to their grandmother and her caregivers to enjoy.
