Please listen to a personal message from our Ziba Beauty CEO, Sumita Batra, about how you can help #SaveZibaBeauty by shopping COVID-19 Essentials, here https://bit.ly/3bIGL7J
SCRIPT: Hi! My name is Sumita Batra and I'm the CEO of Ziba Beauty.
First of all, I wanted to say thank you to you.
Ziba Beauty is a family-owned business that we have built with very hard work over the last 33 years.
If you are an essential worker, we wanted to give you our personal thanks and gratitude for putting yourself out there. I hope and pray that you and your family are going to make it through this really tough time that we are all going through.
We are still closed. All 14 studios are closed at the moment and we are anticipating the closure is going to go on way beyond because we are touch services.
I will not open the business until I feel it is safe for you to come and get the service done, as well as safe for our team and our employees to actually do these touch services on you.
What that is causing, unfortunately, is the potential demise of our brand and our company. Because our rent roll is still going, our loan payments are still going and we're going to find ourselves at the other end of this in deep debt.
Unfortunately, we ended up having to lay off everyone so that they could then at least collect unemployment in the safety of their homes.
You can see how much I've grayed in the last few weeks. I was an emotional mess because for me Ziba Beauty is part of my heritage.
It's part of my heart. It's like a baby that I have painstakingly grown with my family. As the company is concerned we've got 140 families that are expecting to survive this thing.
What we've done is, we've taken all the essential paper supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizers, gloves, masks - things that we actually regularly use in our business.
We have taken those and we have created a COVID essentials section on our home page at zibabeauty.com. We're doing curbside pickup and we're also doing shipping at fair affordable prices to our clients.
So I request you, please stay at home. Please be safe at home, and if you have any COVID essential needs, we would really really appreciate it if you go to ZibaBeauty.com and buy from us.
Please share this information with your friends and family. You will actually end up #SaveZibaBeauty
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart from our family to your family.
We send you love, we send you safety, please take care.
