Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping.
The following is an update from Buck DeVan and Melissa Cox, Founders of Charm City Hemp, LLC on how they are adapting and coping during these times.
Charm City Hemp is currently open 7 days a week in Belvedere Square. Our current operating hours are Monday – Saturday from 10am-6pm, and on Sunday from10am-5pm. The Hampden on the Avenue location is temporarily closed due to COVID-19.
Charm City Hemp is offering curbside pickup as well as free same day delivery in a 20-mile radius with a $50 minimum for delivery.
You can also shop online at www.charmcityhempstore.com
How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
We had to temporarily close our location in Hampden, while our Belvedere Square store is still operating, but with modified hours. We recently started offering curbside pick-up and free delivery in the Baltimore area. CBD is great for stress and anxiety, so we want to make sure our customers have easy, convenient access to our products.
Are you doing something for the community or your employees that you want to share with our readers? What is the status of your employees?
We’re offering free delivery to anyone in a 20 mile radius that can’t, or doesn’t want to leave their home. We are still offering our employees reduced hours under a temporary layoff so that they can continue to work and also collect unemployment benefits, and providing CBD products for stress and anxiety.
How can readers help you get through the crisis?
Visiting our Belvedere square store or shopping in our online store. Following our business on social media is also great.
How are you coping, personally?
It’s been difficult. We both have full time jobs which we’ve been doing at home while also trying to manage the business, apply for financial aid, etc. We have identical twin 2 year old girls, and while we have loved spending more time with them, this has also made it even more challenging to work from home.
If you represent a local small business or non-profit and would like to share your update with our readers, contact Nicole Allen at [email protected]. During the crisis, we will offer these sponsored posts for free as a service to the community.
