Wow. What a weird year this has been. It’s certainly one for the record books. While we haven’t been affected by COVID-19 as much as a lot of families and businesses across the country, we have experienced some discomfort and delays. Mostly, our supply chain has been behind but it’s catching up.
Normally during this time, we’d be booking travel for the summer tradeshow season and preparing all the things that must be done before the start of all the markets - samples, catalogs, new releases. It’s a busy time of year for the wholesale side of this gig. We’re still doing most of those things, but approaching things a little differently.
We’ll still be participating in Anne McGilvray Showrooms in Atlanta, Dallas, and Las Vegas. New show dates (at this time) are as follows:
- August 13-18: Atlanta Show
- August 19-25: Dallas Show
- August 30-September 3: Las Vegas Show
This season, instead of jet setting around the country, we’ll be staying home. We’re opting to keep the showrooms less crowded in hopes that it means our customers will feel more comfortable shopping.
There are a few things to let our retailers know about.
- We ARE releasing new products this season and we’re excited to share those soon. We had planned to release a few more, but we’re being a tad bit more conservative.
- We’ll be creating a short video to introduce our line as well as our new products that will be displayed in our showroom spaces, made available to our sales reps to share, and it will also be emailed to our existing stockists so they can get an update where they are most at ease.
- We’re making ourselves available for Zoom or phone appointments either in the comfort of your store or while you’re in the showrooms. Schedule a call with us here.
- We’re mailing catalogs to all past or previously interested stockists - please email us if you would like to be included.
- We’re sending samples of letters upon request if you aren’t attending shows and are a touchy-feely shopper. We’ll also be sending these pre-packaged samples to the showrooms so you’re the only one touching those samples.
