Britt Barron, owner of Vickie B’s on Main in Tomball, said she was forced to not only change how the clothing boutique operated but what products she sold, in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Obviously with closing, the challenge has been that most people need to try [clothes items] on,” she said. “We have become very gifty; we have added gifts to our inventory because we recognized that’s what was selling.”
Barron said candles have been a big seller as people have been spending more time at home.
With the temporary closure of the storefront, Barron said Vickie B’s on Main has had to change from being a brick-and-mortar-only shop to also having an online presence.
“[We weren’t] too focused on having a website,” she said. “But it was needed from a business perspective because that is where our growth is going to be.”
