- Why grow the business online when there’s already a store front?
- Is it true Rose & Pearl opened in the middle of a pandemic?
- Why is the Instagram name @handpicked_rosenpearl ?
- What have you enjoyed the most since starting this business?
Well since the (Covid-19) pandemic hit, we’ve all had to learn and trust the world of online shopping much more than ever before. People who were more reluctant to trust the ever-growing world of e-commerce prior, were forced to during, in order to survive.
Even though I’m the type of person who enjoys the experience of shopping, entering a store, feeling the products in hand, and using all my senses to relish the products…
… It seems now that people are more reluctant to leave their homes and go out in public, when there’s a simple and efficient means to obtain what you want right from the comfort of your home.
Therefore, growing the business online is very important for the sustainability of Rose & Pearl.
Yes it absolutely is. It was a little bit of a crazy decision, with the risk of potential mandated shutdowns and restrictions, but I have always done things a little backwards.
Every item in our store is personally “handpicked” by me. If its not something I would use, wear, or have in my home then you will not see it in our store.
Well, I’m new to the community, so the store has offered me the opportunity to meet new people, by interacting with customers, and building community relationships.
Ask anyone that’s shopped there, I always ask customers to tag Rose & Pearl in their social media pics that show them enjoying our products. Taking items that I have picked out personally and see how you have pieced them together in your own vision is something I’m very proud of, and consistently honoured with.
