Williams Trading Co Offers a Checklist and Store Opening Guide as States Slowly Allow Openings

Pennsauken NJ – Following a number of adult retail store shutdowns across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Williams Trading Co offers retailers some helpful guidelines for reopening their business as restrictions begin to lift. Along with a checklist from the National Federation of Retailers, Williams Trading also is offering a quick list of helpful procedures, links, and a quick industry-related course on Williams Trading University that pinpoints helpful tips for adult retailers in keeping their stores, employees, and consumers safe. 

“As retailers begin to slowly open, the NRF has developed operational guidance and considerations for opening stores developed by leaders convened by the NRF. Williams Trading has also supplemented these guidelines with specific operating suggestions specific to the adult industry retail sector. Additionally, we are providing a Williams Trading University course called COVID-19: A Retailers guide, which is available for all retailers,” says Scott D, Director of Marketing and Sales at Williams Trading Co. 

General Store Opening Guidelines National Retail Federation

  1. Deep Cleaning Procedures (CDC protocol)
  2. Training employees and preparing a COVID 19 protocol plan
  3. Operation Door Checklist from the National Retail Federation – This checklist represents guidance from members and subject matter experts, and is intended to highlight key topics to consider as retailers seek to re-open operations. Your individual facts and circumstances will be unique, and we encourage you to work with your preferred legal and financial advisors to adapt this guidance to your specific situation.
  4. Review the Coronavirus Retail Restrictions by State – this state-by-state map outlines coronavirus-related laws, executive orders, regulations and guidance governing store reopening for retailers

Keeping Connected: Paul Reutershan of Williams Trading Co. Creates Fast-Growing Facebook Group For Industry Professionals

Pennsauken – With the coronavirus affecting so many businesses, industry veteran and Williams Trading Co Brand Ambassador Paul Reutershan found a way to keep the adult industry connected and engaged. 

Creating the Facebook group Pleasure Professionals Place earlier this week, Reutershan invited all industry professionals to join, be they distributors, manufacturers, or retailers. The purpose of the group is to allow industry professionals to stay connected, discuss various issues, opportunities, business, and trends – but what the group really does is help people keep connected, keep spirits up, and overall promote a sense of togetherness during a very trying time. 

 

“I came up with the group late last Sunday night. I was looking at different industry groups and didn’t really see one that was available for all facets of people in our business. What a wonderful surprise this has been to get connected with hundreds of industry professionals from so many different arenas. It appears there was a desire for connection during this extraordinary time, and I’m thrilled to be a part of bringing our ‘family’ together,” says Paul about the origins of the group, and how quickly it has grown in such a short time. 

 

In just one week, the group has grown to over 700 members, and has been a great way for both veterans and newbies in the industry to connect with one another. Posts range from business questions to memes, to fun discussions to meanderings down memory lane. 

 

The Pleasure Professionals Place group is not just a great way to connect and network with industry professionals, though that is definitely a plus; there is a spirit of camaraderie that has sprung to life in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, and members are coming together in a way that makes it clear why the adult pleasure products industry is so enduring. 

 

To join the group, simply log on to Facebook and either search for Pleasure Professionals Place, or click on the link below:
