Unprecedented global events have impacted every one of us in ways we could never image. The staff at Drizzle & Shine are healthy during this hiatus, and we hope you are as well. We experienced slowing sales through out March 2020 and followed government guidelines to close on March 24th.
We are fortunate that a lot of our customers are still supporting us by visiting our online store (which is ever-growing, and has free shipping).
Sadly, we didn't get a Seattle business grant, even though we qualified. Over 9000 businesses applied for a mere 250 coveted grants, which were handed out in a lottery. Our PPP loan didn't go through either before the $249 billion government stimulus money ran out. So we really are surviving because of our customers. Thank you!
This week marks both Earth Day and the 7th anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse, where over 1,100 garment workers in Bangladesh lost their lives. So it's an important time to reflect on why Drizzle & Shine exists. We want to promote sustainable, ethical fashion that is kind to animals, earth, and people. It's easy to lose sight of that in trying times.
We will get through this
We miss you and the fun daily interactions we have with all of our like-minded customers. Please stay safe. Know that we are thinking of you, and that soon, we can pick up the pieces and meet again to chat about vegan fashion
Keep up with what's going on at the store.
