A Lincoln antique store found a new way to sell its goods online during the quarantine. Customers enjoyed it so much, the owners plan on keeping their virtual connection.
“So now we do Tuesdays and Fridays at 9 a.m. central standard time on Facebook and we’ve got such a following that now that we’ve opened the store no one wants to let it go,” says Lorrie Orman, manager of the store. “So, we’re still here doing both of them.”
The Aardvark Antique Mall started selling goods on Facebook live when they had to close their doors.
Now that the space is reopened they are continuing to take precautions to make customers feel safe, including closing the snacking area, putting one–way signs for walkways, and all staff will be wearing masks.
“Everyone’s required to wear a mask,” says Orman. “We’re currently not allowing anyone under 16 in the store. We have hand sanitizing stations throughout the store we encourage people to wash their hands.”
The mall has new hours from 9 to 5 and Orman says that’s until the governor lessens restrictions. For more information visit www.aardvarkantiquemall.com.
