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 Kara Brook Brown, Owner & Beekeeper of Waxing Kara on how they are adapting and coping during these times.
How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
Like everyone else, we’ve had to temporarily close our retail business. We’ve done quite a bit to grow and improve our online business.
- We’ve shifted from being a brick and mortar store to an online establishment.
- Our online wholesale business is still up and running also. Several of our online wholesale customers are still doing well, thankfully.
- We’ve separated to make sure that everyone stays healthy independently. We wanted to mitigate risk by each working apart. One person goes into the shop daily to fill orders.
I have to say how proud I am of my team and how well (despite plenty of challenges at home) everyone is still doing their part in this business to make it work.
