For the past three days, it was impossible for us to make it downtown to check up on the store. But today, we were finally able to make it over to Korin and of course, there was no power.
But the show must go on!
We took our iphones and started collecting the knives that needed to be taken to our NJ warehouse (because they had power and internet) to be shipped.
Vincent (knife sharpening apprentice) digging through knife covers.
In the basement to retrieve more knives with nothing but iphone light, which was actually brighter than the flash light we had. lol
Making sure everything on the order is correct by triple checking.
Packing it all into the car, because the Korin truck is out of gas and many places in NJ.
Things are a little difficult, but we're managing. Hopefully power will come back soon and they will pump out the water out of the subways.
After we began closing the gates, two customers tried to stop by. It really made my day to know that people go out of their way to come to Korin even if its inconvenient to get here.
I hope you and your family are safe and sound. Thank you for reading!
