お客様 - customer
- In Japan, traditionally, the customer is God. Seriously. This doesn't mean you can walk out of their store with whatever you want for hyakuen, but it means you leave feeling like you own the place.
平素 - ordinarily, in the past
大変 - serious, diffficult
- What a useful word. Use it whenever you want to comiserate with someone:
お世話になっております - Thank you for your help.
- Incredibly common business phrase, found at the top of almost every formal letter, email, conversation, etc.
急 - sudden, urgent, steep
- Note: same kanji as in 急ぐ
- This is a lowering of the company, because the notice is directed to the almighty Customer. Rikaichan-users: if you hover your mouse over the word, then hit shift, you can see the meaning of the first kanji is quite low.
に関して - like について, it means regarding
７月１日 - ひちがつ いっぴ
付で - "as of"
変更 - change, alteration
