As a small family business, we continue to weather the storm created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst this is not easy for any of us, and we are also feeling the ravaging impacts of the last year, we are doing everything we can to move through this period with our amazing, enthusiastic and always smiling family that is TANDA TULA. We are committed, we are adapting, and will be here for you for the long haul. Thank you all for your continued kindness, support and loyalty!
