To be featured as a business profile through July, email staff reporter Austin Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Aspen Times: How have you gotten creative during this time? What have you done to keep your customers engaged?
Mrs. Barr’s Natural Foods: We are grateful that as a small local company, our production model fit easily into the new COVID related guidelines. During this time, our marketing focus has been on online sales and we recently launched a new website. Free shipping offers over the past few months were welcomed by our customers. Keeping shelves stocked at local stores has been top priority. We partnered with another local business for a giveaway promo on social media and received a great response from existing and new followers!
AT: What’s the most important thing the community can do to support you?
Mrs. Barr’s: The community may continue to support us by shopping on our website or looking for our products at many local stores, including Clark’s Market, Roxys, Whole Foods, City Market and several other locations.
AT: Where can we find your most current offerings and updates?
Mrs. Barr’s: Visit our website to stay up to date on current products. Many of the local grocery stores carry most or all of our current products as well.
AT: What has been the best customer experience or comment you’ve had since the crisis started?
Mrs. Barr’s: We received this review on a gift basket sampler ordered from our website: “Perfect gift to get family through quarantine! They were so grateful and really enjoyed the assortment of healthy yumminess!”
AT: Is there anything else you’d like to add regarding your business during the pandemic?
Mrs. Barr’s: We are thankful for the ongoing loyalty of our local vendors who keep our products stocked on their shelves, and our customers who continue to enjoy our products locally and across the country!

With the city of Aspen’s elimination of cardboard recycling at the Rio Grande Recycling Center, residents can rely on curb side services but businesses have to either pay for a hauler or bring it to the local landfill.
