Hi! I'm Jason Goldberg,
Founder & Chief Executive Officer at Fab. I write here once per quarter. For more regular updates follow me on Twitter.

Hurricane Sandy & Fab. Tuesday October 30, 2012.

Here’s a short update on Hurricane Sandy & Fab as of 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday October 30, 2012.

Fab HQ. Fab’s headquarters are in the West Village of New York City, at 95 Morton Street. Our offices are 1 block from the Hudson river and our street and building were impacted by the storm. Our office is currently without power and it is closed until further notice. As our offices are on the 5th and 8th floors of the building, we are hopeful that there was no interior damage.

Fab Warehouse. Fab operates out of two warehouses in New Jersey. Both of our warehouses are currently without power and thus are closed. As such, we are unable to ship packages today. We hope to have power restored to our warehouses very soon.

Fab Team. About 1/3 of Fab’s employees are currently without power. The other 2/3’ds of us with power are welcoming those without power into our homes. There’s this beautiful, heart-warming email thread amongst Fab employees called, “Team Together” where team members with power are offering up their homes. It’s special. We’re a Fab Family.

As I write this 12 Fab team members are huddled around my kitchen table working on out recovery plans and our holiday shops. Hotel Betashop (my couch!) is open tonight too!

Fab Website, Apps & Customers. We are doing everything possible to maintain a business-as-usual approach to Fab during these challenging times.

  • We are launching daily new offerings in the morning and evening, as usual.  There are currently 10,000 products on Fab and there will be 1000+ new items added to Fab daily.
     
  • We will launch our Holiday Shops on November 1st as previously scheduled.

  • All Fab packages will ship as soon as humanly possible. Our teams are unloading packages in the warehouse as I write this and shipments will go out ASAP.

I will let everyone know as soon as we have more news. We’re hopeful that power will be restored very soon.

Even in tough times, it helps to smile. We’re all designed to—more than ever.
