Local boutique selling homemade face masks benefitting the food bank

A boutique at the Pearl had to switch their business model admid the COVID-19 pandemic. Niche at the Pearl is now producing fashionable homemade face masks due to the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE).

There’s a high demand of face masks in San Antonio since Mayor Ron Nirenberg made the order of mandatory face coverings in the city and Bexar County. A lot of people have either bought some or made their own. There’s many shops and organizations out there producing face coverings. Niche at the Pearl just stepped it up with giving back to the community and also making a product you can coordinate with your outfits.

The local boutique shop was able to give back $1 for every sale to the San Antonio Food Bank which equaled to an equivalent of over 5,000 meals. The shop sells the masks online at their website http://nicheatpearl.com. 

So grateful! Your mask orders in the last two days equaled a donation of just over 5,000 meals to San Antonio Food Bank. #thankyou #weareinthistogether #sanantonio #facemask

The masks are made of cotton with two layers of non woven interfacing lining. They have two sets of ties on the ends for adjustability and comfort. Also there is a bendable metal nose fitting to make it a snug and comfortable fit.

You can get masks curbside after ordering online. The shop is located at 302 Pearl Parkway suite #112.
