Local Fashion Businesses Requiring Face Masks Amid End Of State Mandate.

Local Fashion Businesses Requiring Face Masks Amid End Of State Mandate.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to reopen Texas and reverse the mask mandate has many businesses struggling to  decide what their next steps will be. We are in unprecedented times, and everyone is finding it hard to maneuver these constant changes in society. Local retail shops have been hit hard due to the pandemic and now are worried that they will lose customers due to the lifting of this mandate. There will be customers lost because masks aren’t being required and some lost because they are. No matter our political outlook, we stand by businesses who are fighting to keep their employees, you as the customer, and our city of San Antonio safe and healthy. We understand there is so much that goes into the decision to enforce masks and encourage each business to do what they feel is right for their company.

We reached out to local fashion businesses across San Antonio to see who is still enforcing face masks as we ride out this pandemic. Here is our list, if your businesses was not included please reach out to us as this story will continue to grow as businesses solidify their plans going forward.
