Ariel and I are small business owners located in Niles, Michigan. We run a successful consumer electronics retail store that has serving this community since 1981
On the 21st of March, the State of Michigan temporarily closed all non-essential businesses to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It would be difficult, and we think, irresponsible, to make any argument that consumer electronics are essential to the preservation of life during this crisis. So, to respect the Governor's order, and out of an abundance of caution, we have temporarily shuttered our showroom.
Shuttered does not mean shut down. And, right now, those that can do, must do.
We have partnered with our overseas distribution partner to ramp up the manufacturing and importation of the protective gear that our medical personnel and first responders desperately need.
Be safe, and stay healthy,
S. Ian & Ariel Martin
