On September 9th 2020, we had the privilege to open our first KLADO micro-retail store in Jersey City, New Jersey! Jesse and I searched for KLADO’s first micro-retail for months and a good portion of this time was in the middle of COVID. With COVID, the stakes became higher, since we’d be opening our first retail in the middle of a pandemic. A pandemic that has plagued the world and affected millions. While many small businesses are closing their doors, we'd be opening ours. It's a big gamble. A big risk.
