Why Small Businesses Matter Reimagined
Small businesses matter - now more than ever. They are answering the call with innovation and determination like never before.
We hope you join us in supporting them by sharing their story far and wide and shopping local! We are thankful to Fairfield County Bank for their continued support and making this series possible.
Step inside Pelo by Edgardo.
Four questions with Edgardo Escribano, owner of Pelo by Edgardo.
Are there certain individuals or organizations that supported you and your business through this trying time?
Our clients are amazing. During our State shutdown, they purchased gift cards and products to show their support, raved about our services to others and continue to put their trust in our business - returning for services since we reopened. Also, not to forget the Bailey Avenue merchants who have all been so supportive of each other by running collective promotions, giveaways and providing recommendations. All of this plays a vital part in our small businesses and demonstrates a true sense of community.
Please share the ways your business is adapting to keep your customers and employees safe in addition to the standard guidelines
Pelo by Edgardo continues to follow Covid-19 Protocols laid out for us by the State of CT and the Town of Ridgefield. Being a smaller business, we have been able to offer accommodations to clients such as the first or last appointments of the day that may ease concerns during this time. Whatever the challenge, we are always willing to go the extra mile as we know these are unprecedented times.
What do you want the community to know? Are there ways for the community to help you and other local businesses to prosper?
Ridgefielders are already champions of shopping at local businesses. As a Small Business owner in Ridgefield, I find that sharing your experience with others in the community through word of mouth and social media can be so helpful. As a matter of fact, it is everything in a smaller community!
Are you offering any new products, or ways for customers to purchase your products or services that are popular during this crisis?
Since Pelo by Edgardo is a service-based small business, any products that we sell from shampoo to styling products can be picked up curbside. Any items needed can be called in over the phone ((475)215-5751) processed and ready for your arrival.
