Royal Mail postage strikes and Babi Pur


Here at Babi Pur we have made the decision to send all of our orders through our courier firm and not use Royal Mail at all while there is uncertainty about the service and postal strikes continue.  We have not raised our postage fee as we feel it is unfair to ask our customers to pay for this.

We can empathise with the postal workers who are on strike as they are trying to pretect their livelihoods but as a small family run business this strike is costing Babi Pur thousands of pounds a month which is not sustainable.  Royal Mail is a great service and we hope that the recent disagreements between the unions and directors does not destroy this national institution.
