An Updated Note from Our Family to Yours
During this unprecedented time, we hope you all are safe and taking necessary precautions. Now more than ever, we want to pause and thank you, our clients and friends, for your loyalty and support. Throughout our 60 years in business we have faced many challenges but we have never contemplated a time when all our stores would be closed for an undetermined amount of time.
Like most of you, our team of 410 associates is working from home. From the beginning we have paid everyone and with the help of the recently passed CARES bill hope to continue this practice. As you all know, our people are the heart and soul of our company. Thankfully all are healthy.
We continue to operate our website and our sales associates continue to work with many of you digitally during this period before we can reopen.
The situation in Italy is most dire. We have been in touch with many of our friends and designers like Gildo Zegna, Brunello Cucinelli and Giorgio Canali to send our love and support. Brunello, who many know is a designer and philosopher, sent a beautiful note including:
"In today's suffering there is also the good of the moral reaction that will make us better, and perhaps tomorrow, when the memory slips away along with the suffering, we will come to the same conclusion as Aristotle, who once said that even calamities have a soul and can teach us a wise life."
With an amazing team, loyal customers and great communities we will pull through united.
Stay safe, kind and connected,Bob, Russ, Jack, Bill, Scott, Andrew, Chris, Linda and Tyler Mitchell
