Ingenuity rules these days as "safer at home" orders force us to conduct business in a different way. Here are 5 local businesses that are finding creative ways to reach their clientele in a safe and healthy way.
It Takes a Village Kids -- FaceTime Shopping
2317 Honolulu Ave Suite B, Montrose, CA 91020
It Takes a Village Kids is a unique kids boutique that carries hip and fun styles that make kids look and feel great. This boutique, located in the Montrose Shopping Park, opened in Glendale in 2012. To allow their customers to have the same shopping experience now that the #safferathome orders have been put in place, It Takes a Village Kids is offering "FaceTime Shopping Appointments." These appointments allow customers to see what they are purchasing from the comfort of their own home. The selected items would then be available for free shipping, free delivery or curbside pickup.
Class UFC Gym Glendale -- Online Live Workouts
107 W Wilson Ave, Glendale, CA 91203

Kendyl Young at Diggs — Virtual Open House
3819 Ocean View Blvd., Montrose, CA91020
Kendyl Young, founder of Diggs Realty, has thought of a creative twist to the traditional “Open House” experience. To encourage individuals to follow the #saferathome orders, Young has allowed clients to search for their next home through a virtual open house experience. This is made possible through a Facebook Live video, where Young tours the home and answers her clients’ questions virtually. Young aims to mirror this virtual experience to a regular open house. Through her online tour, she will show her clients the closets, revisit particular rooms, and even survey the immediate neighbors!
