Hello everyone,

With the coronavirus sweeping the nation, there has been a lot of uncertainty at the Alaskan Fudge Co. First, we heard that Princess cruises are suspending all cruises for 60 days to limit the spread of the disease. Then we heard that Canada is not allowing any large vessells with over 500 people on board to stop at their ports until July 1. That is a tough blow to our tourist season! A lot of businesses will not be able to survive something like that so we are all praying that our government can get on top of it.

Alaska Airlines is limiting the number of flights they are sending into Juneau and that looks like it’s going to continue for the foreseeable future. That is going to be tough for all businesses in Alaska.

The good news is that we are all healthy! There have been no confirmed cases in Juneau as of this writing and everyone is taking the necessary steps to slow the spread once it inevitably gets here. People are starting to work from home, schools are actively monitoring kids and closing if there are any signs of sickness. Lots of sanitizers put out for public use as well as signs encouraging people to wash their hands. All these are proven to reduce the spread of diseases.

We at the Alaskan Fudge Co. have stepped up our cleaning around the store too. Another step we are taking is asking more customers to pay with credit cards so we don’t have to handle them, wiping down the customer area and all surfaces with bleach to kill all germs. We also train all our employees to wash their hands frequently between customers, that one is something we always do!

With the likely hood of people sitting around quarantining for a couple of weeks, we decided to do a Spring sale! Use coupon code Spring2020 to get 15% off your order. We can ship it right to your door and you can at least enjoy some awesome candy while you are waiting it out.

Everyone be safe and remember we are all in this together. Stay safe God Bless and take care.
