I sincerely wish you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. I'm sure you all know by now that the impact of COVID-19 is rapidly affecting people around the world. My heart goes out to those who have been affected by this and I hope we're able to get past this period of uncertainty soon.
It saddens me to share this with you, but as a small business owner, this has had a damaging impact on Hello Sushi. At the start of last week, announcements began to roll in about upcoming events being shut down. Starting with this past weekend and going through May, every show I committed to or was planning on doing has been cancelled. Although I am 100% in agreement on this, I am also very concerned about how this will affect me and several businesses like mine who rely on these shows. The next two months was going to be one of the busiest times of the year. A lot of preparation was invested for events that are no longer happening.
Some of you have been following Hello Sushi from back in 2010 when my mom first started it. Since 2016, I have been blessed with being able to share her designs with you myself and have had the pleasure of meeting several of you in person. My hope is that, if you can, you will continue to support in any way possible. Not only for me, but small businesses in general. I know it will be appreciated whether you're shopping online or just sharing the brand with your family and friends. If you'd like to shop online, please see below for more details.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I am truly grateful for all of the support over the years. Please remain safe and healthy out there.
You can always shop safely and securely online. I will be keeping inventory in stock and will continue with the new product releases I have planned for this year. Although all the upcoming shows have been cancelled, I want you to still be able to get what you would have been looking for.
That being said, I will be running random promotions throughout the next month or two. They will be announced through email like this one. These discount codes will not expire until a future date that will be announced. By doing so, you will be able to pick and choose which discount code will work best for your particular order. Only one discount code can be used per order, but you may use each one as many times as you would like.
