Open Benchtable Shipments Delayed Due to Chinese New Year

Today we bring you news that we are expecting shipping delays for Open Benchtable orders due to the arrival of Chinese New Year. The Open Benchtable is manufactured and shipped direct from the Streacom factory in China, a fact that means that shipments will unfortunately be halted for the duration of the festive season. Open Benchtable orders placed now will not be processed and shipped until the second week of February. We kindly request your patience regarding this issue.

As you may already know, Chinese New Year is the biggest holiday season of the year in China and Taiwan. It’s similar to Christmas in the West, being a time when families make an effort to travel home and come together for a full week of festive fun. Unfortunately for anyone looking to purchase an Open Benchtable, it means having to be a little patient as the country basically closes down, making manufacturing and shipping impossible during this period.

In the meantime however, from our offices here in Taipei, Taiwan, on behalf of the OBT team we’d like to wish you all a happy Chinese New Year, or Xin Nian Qui Leur (新年快樂) as we say here. We hope the year of the Rooster is a prosperous and fortuitous one for all who bench in the open!
