Nine weeks ago, along with all other non-essential businesses, we closed our bricks and mortar store. Although there were almost no certainties, there was one: I was determined not to lay off our Tuck team. So we jumped right in and collectively figured out the best ways to pivot. We upped our game online through our online shop, held various virtual sales, sold like crazy through Instagram stories, and created enormous amounts of free video content, providing thousands of clients (existing and new) ways of decorating everything from a dining table, a bar cart, mantles, bedrooms, artwork, living rooms – anything to keep us front of mind.
Miraculously, it worked!
Grateful hardly begins to describe how we feel about our community. As I write this, we reopened today, beginning with limited hours. The future isn’t exactly bright just yet, but boy it’s hopeful. One thing we’ve learned through COVID-19 is if anyone can make it it’s Atlantic Canadians because we know how to come together to support one another.
Tuck is slowly working its way back into the new normal with reduced open hours for now while practicing social distancing: Tuesday to Saturday 12 – 5pm and shop online 24/7 through tuckstudio.ca for items available for curbside pickup and delivery (where available)!
