Virtual hugs and high fives all around.
Retail is a little cattywampus right now. All the customs and traditions of gift-giving and life celebrations have been turned upside down. An uncertain future is scary for us and the previously bustling Homewood, Alabama neighborhood where we work.
Store sales have sluggish as people are slowly becoming comfortable with leaving the safety of home. While Homewood continues to recover, our online sales are booming – even busier than any Christmas we have ever experienced. Our folks in the shipping department are busier than a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
As a community, you have given us confidence in the future and we are grateful. You make choices with your wallet every day. Your make value judgements and put your money where your values are.
Thank you for trusting us. We are grateful that you like Alabama made products as much as we do. We are grateful for your determination to support local businesses like Alabama Goods. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.
We look forward to seeing you in the store at some point and/or continuing our online relationship until the cows come home.
