Sorry we haven't given an update lately. The stay at home order brought many new challenges to our family, as I'm sure it did to each of you as well.
We had a point where we weren't sure if we were even going to be able to continue making this happen, but we worked out a plan to be able to do what we have set out to do!
As we went live with our online store April 1st we have struggled to get any sales. I believe a big part of the struggle is nobody really knows what our products are and I strongly believe that once we get some shoppers through the door to see what we have that will change.
Open for Business-
Saturday 5/16/2020 was our first day open to the public! due to the current regulations we still couldn't have a ribbon cutting opening... We had a few people stop in and check out what we have to offer, we had some great conversations with people that live in the area, giving us a better feel on what people are saying around town and it is very pleasant! one of the biggest questions people asked us is "Are we going to sell anything with the Elkhart Lake logo"? and are we going to sell any T-shirts that say Elkhart Lake Trading Post?
If anyone would like to create any Elkhart Lake style item, please let us know! Weather its a pattern on fabric or something that is sculpted, painted, or shaped.
Sunday 5/17/2020 Heavy rain all day kept the town very quiet with no people out and about, we stayed open until 3pm and decided to close since there was no one out shopping.
Thank you everyone for making this happen, I believe we have a great future in Elkhart.
