Dear P&C Girls,
Pomp and Circumstance Boutique was started in 2007 and we have been through a lot -- we have seen the good, the bad, and the fashionable. However, the current times we are in is definitely some uncharted territory.
First and foremost, we hope that you all are staying safe and healthy. We have recommended (and will continue to recommend) that our customers, employees, friends, and family, all follow the CDC guidelines and follow directions put out by local officials to ensure we all remain safe. Our hearts are with all of you during this difficult time and we wanted to update you all on everything going on here at P&C:
- Store Closed -- our brick-and-mortar store is currently closed to the public due to the Harris Country ‘stay at home’ order. In fact, we closed our doors to the public before this order was even put into effect to ensure the safety of our customers and employees.
- Employees -- many of you have asked about our employees and we are so appreciative of everyone's thoughts. Our team is the foundation of our business and we have committed to keeping our employees on staff and with workable hours (even at home) to ensure they can continue to be paid. Your support means everything because our employees, like you, have bills to pay, even in this straining time.
- Online Orders -- as you all know, our website (pandcboutique.com) and CommentSold are open 24/7. We have one employee at the store each day to package your online orders and get them shipped out to you using USPS. Each of our team members have been trained on cleanliness standards throughout the store and especially when it comes to packaging your orders. You can rest assured that the package you receive has left our store in good hands.
- Social Media -- girl, we know you’re bored at home and need an escape! We are always available on Instagram and Facebook if you ever need anything. We love to see y’all engage with us on social media; now more than ever, it is SO important to support your favorite small businesses. A simple ‘like’ or comment goes a long way!
Finally, we want to take the time to say THANK YOU. Truly. From the bottom of our heart, thank you. We feel like the luckiest people in the world that we get to come to work every day and make you smile. You all have been making this difficult time so much more pleasant. When the news of COVID-19 came out, we didn’t know how to react. Do we stay silent or continue business as usual? As you can see, we chose the latter. We hope that we are creating a sense of normalcy for you because even if we’re social distancing, it doesn’t mean we still can’t be connected with each other.
From all of us here at P&C, thank you for always being with us. You are our world.
Marie, Sam, Blake, and Laurie
