OFFICE CLOSED FROM TUESDAY, 7 APRIL 2020 FOR ONE MONTH

New Government Measure

In line with the Singapore government’s latest advisory on mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces from Tuesday, 7 April 2020 for one month, we regret to inform that our office will be closed and there are changes to our operations. The Covid-19 situation is constantly evolving and there may be unforeseen delays to office reopening.  

What Does This Mean For The Thread Theory?

  • Parcels will only be mailed every Monday. Orders placed after Monday, 10AM will only be mailed the following week. Delivery time may be subjected to unforeseen delays or changes.
  • Extended Return Policy: Customers have to email their return request to [email protected] within 30 days from the date parcel was received. Only return requests made via email which fulfill the conditions under our Return Policy will be accepted.

    To prevent bounced parcels, customers are advised NOT to mail back the parcel until further written notice from our Returns Team and after the government lifts the mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces.
  • Limited Office Access: We have Work-From-Home arrangements and customers may still email general queries to [email protected] or return-related queries to [email protected]. We will try to advise to the best of our ability, but we may be limited by the information we have on hand as we do not have access to our physical stocks and other office-based materials.

We stand firmly with the Singapore government’s guidelines as our staff and customers’ wellbeing remains our top priority. Our hearts go out to every individual whose life has been affected by this unprecedented event. We are also deeply grateful to all the workers on the front line for their courage and dedication during these extraordinary times.

With everyone's commitment, this storm shall pass. Please stay safe and healthy!

Take care,
The Thread Theory Team
