While some of the Sherman Phoenix businesses are still operating through their carryout services or delivery, others like their barbershops and salons have been forced to close.
These closures are expected to last several weeks, which is why Sherman Phoenix has launched an emergency fundraiser.
In a press release, Sherman Phoenix said, "Our first priority is to provide immediate rent relief for all 27 tenants. Secondly, we want to provide support to our entrepreneurs as they pivot to new e-commerce platforms."
Sherman Phoenix continued on to say, "Emergency funds will help ensure that businesses can reopen, rebuild, and rehire, and the Sherman Phoenix will remain a vibrant community hub."
