Spotlight: Some of the good that came from Covid-19 [Free read]

Covid-19 has certainly thrown the world for a loop.

While there have been plenty of curveballs that have been tough to deal with, we like to always focus on the positive. Here is our round-up of the good changes that have happened with businesses in New Town.

At Sweet Tea Williamsburg, owner Tina Crowe, has been able to connect with her customers in a new way. Sure, its best to see smiling faces in your store, but taking things to social media has been a big win!

She and her staff have enjoyed going live on Facebook for fashion shows and showing their customers new items that have arrived. Tina has also used this time to learn more about her vendors and start curbside pick-up for curated gifts. Stop by any time to treat yourself to something special or check out their social media accounts to choose a gift and pick it up with curbside delivery!

Iron-Bound Gym has made lots of updates during Covid that has their members and staff excited. While the gym always been a place with high cleanliness standards, now everyone working out has their own towel and spray bottle to use on their equipment.

Another exciting addition is the ability to reserve your spot in classes online. No need to wait in line at the front desk for your spot assignment in classes, you can now save your spot online before coming in. During Covid, Iron Bound has also been able to implement some new intensity tracking technology into their spin bikes! Visit today to take a class!

Covid hasn’t even stopped new businesses from opening! New Town welcomes The Brass Tap to their growing list of places to grab something to eat and drink with family and friends! Try any of their 60 beers on tap and enjoy outdoor seating while sampling their menu.

Kung Fu Tea is another new business that has opened amid the pandemic. Try something new with their variety of bubble teas and pair one up with their soon-to-be-famous fried chicken. Foodies unite, this place is amazing.

Adapting to change can certainly be difficult but remembering to focus on the good will always help! Be sure to visit your favorite New Town spots to see what they’ve been up to these last few months and we promise you’ll love what you see.
