Many Hawaii residents are excited as their favorite stores have opened across the state. Cookies Clothing Company has recently opened all seven of its stores between Oahu and Hawaii Island and have quickly implemented necessary changes to ensure the health and safety of both customers and employees.
During the shutdown, Cookies Clothing Company sold exclusively online.
“We’re super grateful for all of the women out there that supported our website and bought while we were in quarantine,” said owner Christina Cook-Springmeier.
Cook-Springmeier says that while stores are open, it looks and feels a little different. All employees and customers must wear masks, plexiglass barriers are set up at the registers to provide an extra layer of protection, and hand sanitizer is provided for customers’ use. Employees are also disinfecting common areas throughout the day and floor markers are set up to assist with social distancing protocols.
Per CDC guidelines, only one customer per 200 sq. feet is allowed into stores at any one time. Total amount of customers varies across the Cookies stores and signs are placed on doors to reflect this guideline.
In addition, Cookies is also providing a curbside concierge, allowing customers to place phone or online orders and do curbside pickup at its Koko Marina location.
“Curbside concierge is our way of adapting to people not quite feeling comfortable going out yet,” said Cook-Springmeier.
Cookies is looking forward to bringing in the latest summer trends.
