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 Ali von Paris, the Founder of Route One Apparel, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.
How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
Like everyone else in our state, we had to react quickly to this situation, and we have done a complete 180 in a few short weeks. We have allowed the majority of our non-fulfillment staff to work remotely, and our fulfillment representatives are wearing masks and gloves and practicing social distancing to stay safe while filling orders.
In addition, we have worked very hard and fast to design and sell new products, including essential items like face masks, neck gaiters, surgical caps and bandanas, as well as new t-shirt designs to try to help keep spirits up in this stressful time.
