Since we have reopened, I can’t thank our amazing following enough, as they have been in and the business is flourishing even better than before we had to close. The support people have shown to small businesses getting through this time has been unbelievable and heartwarming,” Miller said. To follow state guidelines, the store has a limit of 10 people allowed in at one time, and the staff sanitizes everything during the day. There also are social distancing stickers on the floor to help encourage customers to keep their distance. “We also have curbside pickup if someone wants to order but not come in the store. They can call the store, and we will bring it out. We are all wearing masks too,” Miller said. Mint Ivy Boutique also has a special event the first Friday of each month. “It’s always different. There is a special, and we have snacks or drinks or an activity to go along with the special,” Miller said. Jessica Schlabach plans to visit the boutique this week. She said she is excited about going in, but she plans to wait until the store is empty before going in and will wear a mask. She works with people with disabilities and has small children, so wearing the mask is to protect them. Jessie Bates, owner of Bexley Ann’s Boutique, said she closed before she was told she had to close because she wasn’t sure how dangerous the virus was and she babysits her granddaughter. “Luckily I already had an online site set up before all this happened, so my customers started using it. At first I was shipping everything, but as restrictions lifted, I started curbside pickup,” Bates said. Bates said her online shopping “blew up” during this time, and she got some new customers. “I reopened the day we were allowed with limited days but realized people are back out and ready to shop, so I added Tuesday too,” she said. Bates is limiting her customers to five at a time and has sanitizer available for her customers. “I spray and wipe down everything between customers. I feel most people are excited to be out, but I’m still getting a lot of online orders as well,” she said. Kristy Schonauer has visited the store several times since its reopening. “I was so glad to be able to go. I wasn’t worried at all about shopping. I also think it’s really important to support our local businesses as much as possible.”
