This is a difficult time for everyone. A few weeks ago, when it became obvious this would cause an interruption to the way we live our lives we saw a significant drop in our daily business. We did what many businesses would do, like reducing staffing hours (a bit) and other actions. Despite our efforts, it’s difficult to overcome the reduction we saw in our traffic.
Following Governor Witmer’s Executive Order on Monday, we made the difficult decision to close until at least April 12th. We have told our staff that we intend to hire everyone back when we get through this difficult time. As you know there are enhanced unemployment benefits available and we are committed to help our staff in any way we are able. To be clear, we have a healthy business and brand, we will be open on the other side. We are so confident in our future; we are still planning to open a second location at 138 Water Street in Benton Harbor.
In the meantime, we wish you and yours a safe and healthy quarantine.
