Coachella 音樂節和其他活動因疫情取消後,Lot, Stock & Barrel 迅速採取行動

這間擴展中的洛杉磯小型企業得到了 PACE 和 U.S. Bank 全美銀行的資助 2014 年,Benjamin Lee Phillips 及夥伴 Florence Tang 決定放棄在美國企業的職業生涯並放手一搏,去追求他們對於設計、服飾及零售的熱情,因而共同創立了 Lot, Stock and Barrel。 該公司是一間提供全面服務的設計工作室及零售商店,包括服裝訂製、刺繡設計與製作,以及特製服裝生產。過去六年來,這間企業已從洛杉磯鬧市區僅有一個概念零售空間的兩人公司,成長至十人的團隊,在西好萊塢擁有一間展銷廳,並在好萊塢有一間設計工作室。 Lot, Stock and Barrel 曾與各品牌合作,包括 Levi’s、Madewell、Asos、Nordstrom 以及 Barneys。該公司也曾與娛樂界及音樂節的公司合作,如 Hulu、Netflix、Amazon 以及 Coachella,提供服裝訂製、宣傳材料及現場客製化刺繡。 在 COVID-19 爆發之前,該公司正忙著為又一年的娛樂活動及音樂節做準備,而首先登場的就是 4 月的 Coachella 音樂節。接著,因為疫情的關係,一切戛然而止。這些影響是立即性的:與零售業者的收帳及採購活動停止;員工工作時數縮減;合約取消;及零售店面停業。於是,該公司不得不擱置了許多無法退貨的原料和庫存。沒有收入,但支出卻不斷增加,包括兩處房租。 因為公司從一開始就是自力更生,從未接受任何投資或金融合作夥伴,Phillips 和 Tang 決定要靠自己的力量度過疫情。如同其他小型企業,他們做出了重大的營運調整,以求生存並順應潮流。接下客戶的小量生產訂單、提供路邊取貨的服務,並為長期客戶提供送貨服務等,讓這間公司得以努力維持一段時間。儘管處於財務困境中,Phillips 和 Tang 卻開始生產口罩並免費發送給零售業及餐飲業的朋友和同事。 但幾個月過去了,情況變得越來越吃緊,他們終於意識到公司可能需要一些幫助。徹底搜尋過網路後,Phillips 發現了 PACE 並聯絡了業務經理 Wai Ling Chin;該經理建議他申請薪酬保護貸款計畫 (Paycheck Protection Program, PPP) 以及經濟損失災難貸款計劃 (Economic Injury Disaster Loans, …
