This really is ‘unprecedented times’. Politicians refer to the last few months like this… The ‘new normal’ (to coin another phrase) we find ourselves in right now is ‘unprecedented’ too… And it’s the uncertainty about everything – the future, a potential second wave, another national lockdown – that must be in the back of everyone’s minds…
But what we mustn’t do is dwell on it if we can… What will be, will be, unfortunately perhaps, and what we need to do is to take care of ourselves and each other, and adapt. We’ve all seen the headlines about the impact the pandemic has had on the economy and businesses across the world, but the ability to adapt has been, and will remain, crucial.
It might be only five letters long, but this word is key – we need to adapt for survival and ultimately to try and achieve any kind of success, whatever that might mean for individuals, couples, families, businesses and global organisations. And that is something we at Sheepers are constantly striving to do.
Once the government issued guidance on the mandatory use of masks, we saw an opportunity to expand our range to include these – sales increased exponentially and in fact our filtered white, ivory and black masks are one of our biggest sellers, even now. We did react quickly to the news and we had the contacts and resources to make it happen, so we were incredibly lucky to be able to do so. It really was the case of everything falling into line at the same time. When we saw a huge spike in visits to our website (it was up by 600%) in that first week of lockdown (17-23 March), we knew we needed to react!
And we’re still trying to do that now… We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… If you want to see us selling something or you have an idea for a product you think would be a good fit for us, then please get in touch on any of our socials. We’d love to hear from you. You can find us on all of the usuals – Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest.
We know it’s almost here (much longed for by many mums and dads out there we know)… The kids are going back to school (hopefully)… Why not add a new pair of slippers to the ‘back to school’ list? There’s no need to queue for these! We know they’re not part of the school attire and by no means something on the essential list, but who doesn’t love a comfy pair of slippers to slide into after a long day? And the weather’s already starting to get a bit cooler too. Check out the latest colours from the bright turquoise, green and pink, to the ruby red and the more sedate greys and browns. There’s even rainbow stitching, pink and rose gold too. Something for everyone. And of course they can be matched with mum and dad as well.
We wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy return to school.
As a welcome back, we are doing a flash sale of 20% off all children slippers until 6th September. Add ‘School’sBack’ at checkout, add comfort to them little toes.
