How has your business changed or adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Last year when we had to close our stores for three months due to COVID-19, we shifted our focus to online sales, and connected with customers on social media. When we reopened our galleries, we adapted our displays for social distancing. We are so grateful to our customers, especially for all of their support during 2020 and into this year.
