Jackson, NJ (PressExposure) November 23, 2012 -- We've all seen the devastation of homes on the east coast from Hurricane Sandy. What is not mentioned often enough is the effects the storm has had on many businesses in the area. While many brick and mortar businesses are now just ruble, many online businesses have suffered as well. We'll use SexyMart as an example. The site offers sexy lingerie and has been online for many years. Although their booty shorts, sexy bikinis, sexy swimwear and the warehouse contents were not damaged by the storm, their power was out for days at a time, and continues to come and go. And then when their power does resume, it's a gamble as to whether or not their internet will be up and running.
"Fortunately, the website itself is being hosted out of the 'war zone' and is still up and running" says Michael Giordan. CEO of the sexy lingerie company. "But we have lost thousands because we cannot contact our existing customers, nor can we access new orders in the timely fashion that today's online shoppers expect."
Luckily, sexy lingerie doesn't go bad, like food does. Companies that stock and sell food online, that were in the impacted areas, lose, even if they did not suffer physical damage to their property. When you cannot ship items because you cannot access the internet, money is lost.
"I feel bad for our customers who may have purchased bridal lingerie, or a sexy swimsuit for an upcoming vacation. The shipping delays may ruin their plans. They may need a bridal bustier for their honeymoon, or just an ordinary housewife that wanted to surprise her husband with some new sexy lingerie", says Giordan. SexyMart.com is now getting back to normal, because power is back on, but if you were to drive around the area, you can see that many are much less fortunate. It reminds us of how vulnerable we all are. One minute you're selling sexy lingerie, and the next, you are watching buildings very near you float away.
If you live in areas outside of the New York/New Jersey area, and must deal with businesses in the areas affected, please remember that they were probably affected by the storm and have patience if you can. The rebuilding is going well, but there are still shelters filled to capacity with people who lost their homes and businesses. We are a compassionate people, and the best comes out in times of need. SexyMart is just one of the many businesses that ask for your compassion and patience. So if you are seeking out some sexy lingerie, maybe it wouldn't be a bad thing to choose a company in need, in the area devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
