COVID-19 UPDATE - Level 4

UPDATE 25 March 2020

Today, New Zealand enters Covid-19 Alert Level 4

During lockdown - Alert Level 4 - we won't be able to access our stock, and honestly, we feel it's in all of our best interests to do our best to minimize contact - even with our courier who we love (thanks Scott!). So if you want to order online, we'll deliver your goods as soon as we have access again -- same goes with pickups -- thanks for all the love and for supporting us + our music community to date¬†ūüėĄ

We will respond to all emails as we can. Be well, be safe and enjoy the chill !

We'll update you again as things evolve...

RELICS COVID-19 RESPONSE - 21 March 2020

Posted on March 21, 2020 by Irene Hundleby


Dear RELICS customers,

WOW -- what crazy times ?!!

Relics has been open 7 days a week for the last 7 years -- but we all have to adapt to the new normal. We will endeavour to be as flexible as we can be -- and no doubt a little creative to help you get the music products you like, when you like. We -- Dave and Irene -- have a bit to think through yet, but currently you have some options:

ALL STOCK is listed on our website

  • You can shop using our website or¬†give us a call and¬†while our couriers are operating -- your records, cds and dvds can be delivered to you.
  • Under ALERT 1 and ALERT 2 you¬†can visit the shop as long as you have no flu-or-cold-like symptoms and you keep some distance from each other -- 2 metres or 6 feet.¬†

COVID-19 is a serious disease that is impacting all of us but will be especially worrying for many in our community. The efforts being made are to help us SLOW DOWN community spread in New Zealand -- to help medical staff treat the sick that need help, and to help our country function as normal as possible under these new circumstances. 

Wondering if we're open?

We will keep updating you here in RELICS NEWS and on our Instagram and Facebook social media pages -- in the meantime -- please be safe, don't take risks, stay home if you're immunocompromised or unwell -- and stay connected to each other !!

Much love, 

Dave, Irene + the Relics Team xxx
