Subsequent to the quarter, the brand took steps to strengthen its balance sheet with a $1.95M private placement. Proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes as well as future store growth. Brand:Development work on Choom’s new proprietary ecommerce platform continued through Q2, moving the brand toward its goal of realizing the value of its recently acquired in-house digital team and assets. Choom is taking its elevated retail attributes (including a 98.7% customer satisfaction rate), and applying them to its ecommerce platform, creating a truly unique, omnichannel ecosystem for the brand and its clients.
