Retailers across Los Angeles are gearing up for their re-opening, which we think is a bit premature, but we do understand that foot traffic and in-person commerce is the driving force in the infrastructure for a lot of these establishments. It’s hard to deny that no matter how far technology has advanced, it can never duplicate the physicality and experience of touching and trying on garments, especially when it comes to specialty items and luxury goods. But, if you’re still wary and feel that Whole Foods and Target is as deep into society you’re willing journey for the time being, yet are ready to shed your newly grown self-isolation body hair and buy some new threads to show off, we found this list of amazing online-sales that are going on right now.

Driving through the PCH and stopping by one of our favorite restaurants in Malibu, Malibu Farm, we walked up to the big wooden doors to only find a foldable table with a cash register on it, chalk menu board and a couple of masked workers servicing the visiting patron’s and beach-front locals. With the six feet distancing rule strongly enforced, you could place an order then make your way to the sand or take it home with you, which completely eliminates the ambience that MF is known for. It made us think, how will the dining experience be post Covid-19? For the fortunate establishments that survive the financial impact that the hospitality industry has clearly taken, how will they innovate a new safety structure that aligns with an atmosphere that welcomes close proximity, shared moments and togetherness? It will be interesting to see the inevitable changes that are surely coming.
