Like many mom-and-pop shops, we have been struggling to cope with the impact of COVID-19. We made the tough decision to close several locations; and as a nonessential business, we also pivoted our business to partner with a veteran herbalist to prepare herbs and teas for the Chinatown community. Still, without an online presence and reduced store hours, much of our inventory remains untouched.
We are so grateful to Send Chinatown Love for helping us get online. Many of our prized teas and unique cultural goods can now be redeemed in-person with the purchase of an online gift voucher. For our parents, this is also an entry into a digital business that they have never done before. And they are so excited to begin learning!
