Shop Online and We’ll Donate to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund
Our Chicago location will be closed to comply with the Governor of Illinois' Stay at Home Order through April 7, 2020.
I know you’re being bombarded with people requesting your help right now, so I’ll keep this as brief as I can. We were not a healthy business before this happened. It’s been a hard few years and Rotofugi is the equivalent of someone living on payday loans. It’s not easy for me to admit that, but it’s the truth.
I intend to keep paying my staff their regular pay as long as I can, but that means we need revenue. So, if you have the means (trust me, I know that many of our customers and friends are also hurting right now) please shop online at rotofugi.com and we will ship your order in a timely manner.*
Starting right now, we will also be donating 10% of all online sales to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund.
Yes, we are hurting, but lots of others are too so we're hoping that this small gesture will help BOTH us and others that are in need.
Thank you and stay safe out there….
* We have obtained guidance that it is permissible for a member of our staff to attend to online orders and will be packing and shipping orders on an "as needed" basis...basically, once we have a sufficient number of orders ready to be packed, a member of our staff will be going to the store and getting things moving so we are minimizing the amount of trips and potential exposure for our staff. I expect we'll be shipping every 2-3 days, but it really just depends on the volume of orders we have. Thank you for your patience.
