Exactly nine years ago today, we opened our little shop just up the road in Port Williams. We had no employees; it was just Ross, doing everything.
As of today, we have no employees again. We’ve gone from a staff of 20 right back to just Ross, doing everything. It has been heart-breaking to lay off our staff members over the last several days. They’ve been wonderful: understanding, kind, and optimistic. Situations like this tend to bring out people’s true colours, and it’s clear that our employees–sigh: former employees–are good people with the right stuff.
We’re trying to be optimistic too, and looking forward to the day when we start calling people back. Until then, you’ll find Ross keeping the shop open for as long as he can on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10am-2pm. If you aren’t able to come to him, e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll try to come to you if he can.
Thank you to our caring and loyal customers who are supporting us and other local businesses as much as they can! It means the world to us.
