The Pear Tree has more than the name suggests

By Riverine Herald

IF YOU need fresh fruit and vegetables, The Pear Tree is here to help.

While the store might be closed to the public for the safety of customers and staff, the team is here to help you still eat the right way.

Ordering is easy – by either going online to www.fresho.com.au/peartree, emailing [email protected] or calling the store on 5480 1341.

Then, you can either pick up the order yourself or have it delivered to your home.

The Pear Tree’s John Oliveri said the changes to business had made his organisation more flexible.

“Our goal has been to do something for the community during a difficult time,” John said.

“By offering these services it helps us to keep people employer and help out people who might be at home in self-isolation.

“We’ve been fortunate to have employed two of our wholesale customers that have had all their catering events cancelled.

“We are also looking to hire more people to pick and pack orders. Resumes can be sent into peartreeorders@gmail.com

Customers who have opted to pick up their orders can do so in several different time slots including 9am-10am, 12pm-1pm, 3.30pm-4.30pm and 5.30pm-6pm.

The team at the Pear Tree prefers orders are completed the night before they are requested.

While any phone orders should be completed between 8am and 12pm.

Eftpos payment is available upon collection at the store.

The Pear Tree is located at 110-112 Sturt Street, Echuca.
