DCDT: How are you adapting your work and making it accessible amid the pandemic?
LR: “Mama Coo's is offering purchases through our social media outlets - Facebook as well as Instagram - with curbside pickup. We are also open for in-store shopping, noon to 5 p.m. Thursday-Sunday, for 4 people at a time.”
DCDT: Where are you personally shopping for gifts?
LR: “Per usual myself and my employees prefer shopping local small businesses for our holiday gifts. These include super local Mom-and-Pop business that sometimes get overlooked for the more “ooh-lala” newer places opening. Some local businesses to check out include: Southwax, a local waxing spa; GeminEye Tarot for tarot card reading; Xochi's Gift Shop for beautiful imported items from Mexico; Duly's Coney Island gift cards for the best Coney in Detroit and Michigan Squeeze Station gift cards, a local cold press juice and smoothie shop.”
