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 Ruth Shaw, an iconic luxury boutique in the Shops at Kenilworth. Ruth Shaw is located at 800 Kenilworth Drive, Towson, Maryland 21204.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
We are basically shut down and surviving off our sales from the FARFETCH e-commerce platform and the kindness of our customers calling in to buy gift certificates.

Are you doing something for the community or your employees that you want to share with our readers?
Unfortunately no, due to the lockdown. As we have offered via our Facebook page — “Our store may be closed but our hearts are open” — we are still here to chat, reminisce, answer questions or provide a fashion fix.

What about your employees? 
Our employees are anxiously awaiting to get back to work and do what they do best.

How can readers help you get through the crisis?
Don’t forget us.  Come shop with us again when this is over.

How are you coping, personally?
Staying proactive and working with our vendors to address the issues caused by the disruption.  Keeping abreast of the local and federal small business relief programs.  Planning a dazzling introduction of Spring/Summer 2020 at a discount and whetting your appetites for Fall/Winter 2020

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
More than ever we need each other to survive today and what is to come.

To learn more about Ruth Shaw, visit the website and Facebook. Continue to support Ruth Shaw by purchasing gift cards. As they mention, the store may be closed but their hearts are open. Here is to a brighter season ahead. Stay safe, stay in touch.

If you represent a local small business or non-profit and would like to share your update with our readers, contact Nicole Allen at During the crisis, we will offer these sponsored posts for free as a service to the community.
