THE WHAT? Kim Kardashian West has announced the temporary closure of the KKW Beauty fulfilment centre during the coronavirus pandemic.
THE DETAILS The reality star-cum-entrepreneur followed ‘current health orders’ instigated by California Governor Gavin Newson, sharing a post to her five million followers on KKW Beauty site which read, “While this remains a difficult time for us all, we have been so inspired by all of the amazing support we are seeing within our community and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.”
The KKW Beauty website is remaining open, however, the company stated that the “fulfillment center cannot guarantee delivery dates at this time. Your order will receive top priority as soon as we can resume shipping.”
THE WHY? The temporary closure follows instructions from Governor Newson for residents to only leave their home in order to ‘get food, care for a relative or friend, obtain health care or go to an “essential job.”’
Kardashian West later took to her Instagram to promote her fashion range SKIMS, highlighting the brand’s donations to Baby2Baby charity during the pandemic.
She said, “Today @skims will be restocking our most-loved Cotton collection and donating 20% of the drops profits’ to the @Baby2baby’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Program in order to support their mission to provide basic essentials to children and families in need.”
