It has already been three weeks since we closed shop. If we had not, we would have had an obligation to do so a few days later. We had to keep our team to a minimum to continue to operate and try not to be forgotten, using our online store. Jourdain is my second family and it is above all the thing on which I put all my energy. I have often wished that time would stop so I could have time for myself and my family, but not in such a context of anguish and uncertainty. When you are a trader, an entrepreneur, we often have the impression that we spend our days putting out fires. If it is not a problem to solve, it is a new idea that comes to us and that we must realize.
So here I am with a project to make the next few weeks a little less gloomy. At Jourdain, we were looking for a way to stay in touch and share with our customers, as we enjoyed doing so in-store every day. I miss these exchanges and discussions terribly and I am certainly not the only one.
So it's our pleasure to start writing positive and fun thoughts in this new section of our blog (cavabienaller). Our colleague Alix's mother will share her recipes for sweets every week. I asked one of our clients if she wanted to take part by sharing her reactions on confinement. She agreed on one condition, that she remain anonymous. However, she loved the idea and we should be able to read more than one text, much to my delight. My colleagues will also join in. If you also want to share this experience, we will be happy to publish your texts or simply read you in the comments at the bottom of each article.
