Practical Publishing staff extend our deepest sympathies to all those individuals, their families and friends who have been victims of the the devastation caused by the floods in Queensland. As a Brisbane-based company we have watched in horror as the disaster unfolded just minutes from our doorstep and in admiration as the stories of personal heroism and good neighbour actions began to emerge in our community.
Our business is based on higher ground in Brisbane and we are therefore operating almost normally – some staff are working from home as road transport is too dangerous - however there is severe disruption to supplies and distribution.
Issue 29 of Australian Simply Cards was due to go on sale on Friday 14th January. Understandably, distribution to newsagents and subscribers in Queensland has been adversely affected due to the terrible flooding in the region. Many transport links are inoperable and there will be areas of Queensland where the magazines are not available.
Practical Publishing’s mailing centre is also based in Queensland and has been severely disrupted by the floods. Subscriber copies of Australian Simply Cards issue 29 were ready for mailing on Monday 10th January but Australia Post has been unable to make collections. Copies will be sent as soon as possible. For the latest information on mail delivery delays due to the flooding, please visit the Australia Post information page.
Copies of Australian Simply Cards issue 29 can be purchased directly from Practical Publishing by calling 07 3160 9940 or online via the link below.
