An Update From Our Chief Frog

August 26, 2020

Hello travelers and friends,

It is hard to believe that at the end of August we are still in the throes of Covid-19 with the added dimensions of the ongoing and passionate fight for social justice and equality; the ramping up to our national election in November; and, an already robust hurricane season bearing down upon the southern Gulf states. It’s no wonder no one is thinking about travel!

Despite the uncertainty of these times, and the current lack of travel opportunities and desire, Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters is still plugging along and I hope this is a good time to share with you where we are with the business of selling travel and travel gear.

At this point, my main objective is to hold on to the exceptional women I work with and who have been working extremely hard for the last 6 months on various ways to keep our business viable. Those of you who have used our travel services, shopped in our store, or attended one of our special events knows each of these women individually and understands how much value they bring to your travel experiences. I know that we will all want to travel as soon as it is safe to do so, and I want to ensure that our entire team is around to help get you wherever you are going.

To cut back on expenses, Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters is currently open on Monday-Friday from 12-5, a reduction of 19 hours of business operation per week. We have launched an online store, a weekly flash sale, and are about to start a month long virtual and in-store sidewalk sale. Join us for a Zoom meeting we host every three weeks that highlights one vendor or a part of the world our clients are interested in learning more about, or check out our content on our new YouTube channel. All these ways to connect with us have been put in place to keep you up to date about what, where, when, who and how to travel when you are ready.

How can you help? Many of you have asked and we are grateful. You can help by shopping with us. We are passing some terrific deals on to you, so hopefully we’ve created a win-win. Please also consider consulting with us for any upcoming travel needs, we can book US hotel stays, car rentals and homes in some parts of the country.

I know that someday we will be sending our clients all over the world once again. Until then please remember that any services or goods we can provide to you does help to keep us moving forward, one day at a time.

 Stay well, keep dreaming of travel, and thank you.
