Winter finally made it to Alabama last week, with snow and ice blanketing The Shoals. Prioritizing our team’s safety, Alabama Chanin made the decision to close The Factory for the week. This winter weather closure has caused delays in our production and order fulfillment processes, but we all are working diligently this week to process, sew, and ship guest orders. If you placed an order last week, please know that we deeply appreciate your support and patience. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1.256.760.1090 if you have questions about your order.
Alabama was not the only area impacted by these winter storms. Texas has been hit particularly hard, with countless residents without power and access to water, heat, and the ability to prepare food. This week we share resources on what you can do to help support Texans in the direst of situations.
