As small business owners, we have given everything we can to grow Amarilo over the past 7 years. We’ve handled being on hold with the IRS for hours on end, product development that takes over a year, hiring, firing, preparing taxes, fundraising, pitching, moving spaces (multiple times), opening a store, closing a store... the list goes on and on. These are all things that a small business endures behind the scenes that allow us to witness the rainbow at the end of a rainstorm, but this obstacle is different. This pandemic is an issue that is not only frustrating but also heartbreaking and we can’t roll up our sleeves and get dirty to fix it.
Internally as a team, we have been proactive since last week to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and appreciate your patience with the delay of orders. Due to the current state our offices have been closed and our team is working remotely. All of our production is currently on pause.
From our entire team we want to say thank you for your continued support. As a self-funded company rooted in the luxury market it’s obvious that during these times jewelry is probably the last thing on your mind. If you take this time to purchase from our brand, thank you. If you don’t, we hope you can look down at your jewelry and think of the beautiful memories you have had wearing your piece. If you’re in the place to do so we urge you to support shopping small and locally because even one sale can make a difference to small business owners.
All orders placed are considered pre-orders and will ship by May 15th. If you have any questions about placing an order, your outstanding order, or anything we haven't covered, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The situation is fluid and we will continue to serve and do what we love the best we can. We're so grateful to our customers and community for allowing us to do what we love. We are resilient and it’s because of you we can, even in the hard times. Wishing you and your loved ones good health during this time.
The Amarilo Team
