I want you to know that I have been thinking about you and all our retail partners during the COVID-19 crisis and share your concerns about its gravity, as well as the anxiety that accompanies this time of uncertainty and social distancing.
I hope that you and your families are safe and healthy, and actively taking part in efforts to slow down the spread of the virus. I believe that shelter-in-place orders and adhering to social distancing guidelines are the only way to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and have been urging everyone I know to take this approach not just in Denver where I live, but also in other cities and towns across the globe.
But I have decided not to get emotional about it, and have instead decided to put a concrete plan in place for maintaining my business and I wanted to keep you informed.
Many of our retailers, suppliers, and business contacts are adapting as best they can. Like you and many other small businesses, we’ve been looking at every chain of our operation to figure out how best to navigate this challenging landscape.
Our staff’s health and safety is a priority. Fortunately, most of our staff is in our production studio in Vietnam—because so far, the Vietnamese government appears to have been able to contain the spread of the virus. For a country with a population of more than 97 million with only 237 cases and no deaths. However, we have made the decision to halt our production for the next two months.
Here is a list of the other measures we are putting in place through the end of May.
Thank you for your patience with us during this unprecedented crisis. I look forward to continuing to work with you remotely. Being able to connect with, and support you during this time is very important to us. And we are grateful for your loyalty and cooperation.
Please stay safe and healthy,
