COVID-19 | A Letter from our CEO

A message from kreedom & CrushEyes Co-Founder and CEO to Fortress Eyewear family, customers, and community:

To our Fortress family worldwide and all of you, our valued customers, I would like to extend our heartfelt concern and prayers to all of our kreedom & CrushEyes customers who have been affected by the outbreak of COVID-19.  At Fortress Eyewear, the health and well-being of our customers is a high priority.  

As you know, many businesses, colleges and schools are closing, however you can be assured that we at Fortress are working hard to minimize any disruption in business, while ensuring the health and safety of our working family.  

Based on current information from the CDC and government officials, we have halted all staff travel, require some staff to work from home, taking extra steps to clean and sanitize the office and warehouse frequently and ensure we are conforming with all Federal, State, and Local Government rules and regulations.

Now that many of us will have unexpected time on our hands, some for a few weeks, please remember that it’s ok to go outside, take a walk on the beach or in the hills, go for a surf, go fishing, or just cruise on your skateboard, bike, or have a peaceful drive in your car.  Also, remember that “social distancing” is one of the keys to not getting or spreading COVID-19.

Kreedom and CrushEyes e-commerce stores are open and the Fortress team is working to promptly fulfill all orders from our online customers. Have fun checking out our 2020 kreedom & CrushEyes styles and colors on fortresseyewear.comWe think you will really like what we’ve designed and built for this year.  

We also remain active socially, with inspiring and encouraging ideas, contests that we hope & pray will continue bring us together, share smiles and fill hearts & minds with joy filled community experiences.

As a small business owner, I would like to say ’Thank You’ for your support and business over the past 18 years and especially now. Our Fortress family have been through many challenging times together, and without exception we have come through them all, closer, stronger and more joy-filled.

Stay healthy. This too shall pass!
