Lori and Will Ford opened Gum Tree Shop and Café in Hermosa Beach in 2008 as a community gathering place. When the pandemic shut down both of their locations, Lori and Will started focusing on their online shopping presence. They upgraded their website and enjoyed delivering purchases to customers all over the South Bay. The stores reopened in late May and are now preparing for the holidays. Customers have plenty of shopping options, including in-person—with a safe, socially distanced number of shoppers at a time—and on the website. Free gift-wrapping, delivery and curbside pick-up are available. If you need gifts for out-of-town friends and family, you can order on the website and Gum Tree will gift wrap, pack and ship for you. “We want to thank everyone so much for the support they have shown our small business since the pandemic began,” Lori says. “We are so grateful to be part of this incredible community.”
