Impact on small, direct to consumer brands
Not just large, publicly owned companies but also small, direct to consumer brands are suffering. Traffic at Le Point, a San Francisco-based multi-brand concept store has slowed as people have been told to avoid large groups and stay indoors. Similarly, the epidemic has delayed the restock of China-based brand Yan Yan by a few weeks, thus affecting its ability to supply to demand. As a health and safety requirement, the brand is monitoring the temperatures of its factory workers daily besides compelling them to wear masks. Employees also have to sanitise their shoes before entering office besides washing their hands before handling product and packages.
