Update 4/24/20: The Apex Everything Sale is live! Due to the ongoing impact to our operations, the sale has been "flattned" and spread over the next 5 weekends. Read more about it on the sale blog post.
Update 4/23/20: Due to increased volume across the postal system, delays of 1-2 days are expected over normal service.
Flatten the curve. Feels like we are hearing that a lot lately. And while all of us would prefer doing that on a track and over some kerbing, it looks like for the foreseeable future this is going to happen sans a speedy vehicle. Yup, even automotive-inspired torso covering awesomeness is feeling the effects of the Coronavirus. Probably like you, we’ve made some changes to how we’re keeping the lights on, virtually, and safely. So here is what’s going on…
How is BS impacted
The good news is that, for now, we’re still designing, printing and shipping daily torso covering awesomeness. While we’re located in Queens, NY, we’re able to run most of the business in that crazy cloud. Our apparel is printed in South Carolina and the production facility is running.
What our team is doing
Team BS is following the guidance from the State & City of NY and CDC in regards to avoiding non-essential travel, working from home and social distancing - happily between certain team members who can’t agree if a 996 is worthy of garage consideration. Our onsite fulfillment team has been limited to a single staff member at BS HQ and is adhering to common sense cleanliness practices including not using mass transit, frequent hand washing, sanitizing of work surfaces and high traffic areas/doorknobs/light switches, and ensuring no direct interaction with anyone from the outside during deliveries & pickups. And in case you're wondering, this super-packer’s daily route is: home->car->parking->BS HQ. No random pickups for discounted carpool lanes! Because we are leveraging the power of Al Gore’s interwebs, we are still able to review design/idea submissions, answer customer support cases, and yes, offer a new daily design.
What about the Apex Everything Sale?
The Apex Everything Sale typically runs in early April, but that plan has been overcome by events. Instead of one humongous sale, we've now split The Apex Everything Sale into 5 weekends worth of content, with a new lineup each week from April 24 - May 25. More up-to-date details on our blog post.
So, if you’re stuck at home, or at your desk in isolation, you can still check back with us to see the latest torso-tastic design. It might even be a good time to catch up on some reading (car forums), spend time with your family or pick up a wrench to work on that neglected project sitting in your garage. This is all a good reminder that Mom is always right, wash your hands and keep your fingers out of your nose!
Stay safe, and dream of Apexing Everything,
