Letter from Deirdre Quinn

Co-Founder & CEO, Lafayette 148

To Our Lafayette 148 Family,

As you are all aware, we are in the midst of a historic and challenging moment not only for our community, but for our country and the world. I know there is uncertainty right now, but I have absolute certainty in my belief that we can get through this together—with kindness, intelligence and integrity.

We are who we are because of the extraordinary women we dress every day. Now, as always, safeguarding our community is our highest priority. We take great care in creating a healthy environment for our wonderful clients and our employees.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to temporarily close our retail stores. In addition, we’ve asked our corporate employees to work from home, effective immediately. This decision has not been easy. However, in order to continue to protect our team, our wonderful clients, and our larger society, I know it is the right one. I hope that the rest of our peers follow suit. We need bold thinking and big action to weather this challenge.

You can enjoy the same extraordinary level of service you’ve come to expect from us through our Customer Care Team—our expert online Style Advisors are ready to assist you at 1.888.448.1488 and by chat on our website. Of course, you can always shop with us seven days a week at lafayette148ny.com.

We are constantly evaluating how to best safeguard our community and provide the exceptional service you expect from us. To make your shopping experience as seamless as possible during this time, we’re also offering complimentary shipping and returns. In addition, to keep the team at our distribution facility safe, we are operating at a reduced schedule, so. I hope you’ll bear with us as we do our part to help get through this difficult time for everyone. As you know, things are changing quickly, but we will continue keep you updated as we adapt to this unfolding situation.

However, one thing that will never change is my belief that we are stronger together. I know we will get through this challenge. Stay safe, and know that we are here to support you, always.

Ever yours,

Deirdre Quinn
Co-Founder & CEO, Lafayette 148
