At Holmes & Fallon we support our local community through regular donations to the St Vincent De Paul Society and The Salvation Army.
Our donations enable these not-for-profit organisations to deliver help and other resources directly to families and individuals in need.
During the COVID-19 pandemic that grappled the world we offered support to all of our wholesale customers. This included invoice extensions, payment plans, website building and social media help.
We ensured our payments to our sales agents and our suppliers, both local and international, were honoured and on time.
We have an ethical obligation to our suppliers overseas and ensured all our orders were honoured and no stock was cancelled.
