On Monday, March 16, 2020 (less than a week after our five year anniversary), we made the very difficult decision to close our doors temporarily based on developing information about COVID-19. While we provide the safest option available for nail services, we felt closing was the responsible thing to do to encourage more people to stay home during this uncertain time. As of now, we will be closed until the local government says we are allowed to re-open. We will provide updated information if anything changes.
This decision was not made lightly. We have 35 team members that rely on LACQUER for income, and a business model that relies heavily on a steady cash flow to survive. I will be assisting our staff however I can to get through these next few weeks, and will be looking for assistance for the business through newly formed government programs.
A few clients have asked how they can support us. We've set up two ways to contribute: we've set up a GoFundMe page to help the staff directly, or you may purchase a gift card online. Please do not feel obligated, though. I know everyone has different situations and needs right now and we all need to do whatever it takes to get through. We are also shipping online orders from our online store if you need to do a gel removal, manicure or pedicure at home while we are closed.
We love our community and have an amazing team full of love and determination. Hang in there, and thank you for all of your support and understanding.
