Classy Art affected by Hurricane Harvey
August 28, 2017,
Houston-based art supplier Classy Art is on a forced hiatus through Sept. 1 due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
The Class 4 storm battered the Gulf Coast area of Texas and western Louisiana over the weekend and forced numerous evacuations. In all, an estimated 11 trillion gallons of water were rained on Texas due to Harvey with some 13 million residents in some sort of flood watch or warning advisory according to statistics found at cnn.com.
Cohen said the company has fielded close to a hundred calls, emails, and Facebook messages from concerned customers, vendors, reps, and colleagues alike offer any assistance possible including one very gracious colleague who even offered to send a helicopter from Alabama to extract the company’s owners.
The company’s productions and shipping operations are closed until further notice; however, emails and phone calls are still being monitored. Classy Art asks that only extension 110 be used when dialing in via telephone (800-372-8007), and to expect delays on all other forms of communication.
“We are anxious to get all of this behind us and orders as usual,” Cohen said. “We are extremely apologetic to those customers that are having to be patient with us, and we hope to get back to business as usual as soon as it’s safe.”
