Covid 19 Concerns? Try Virtual Mission Prep!

Hello!  
My name is Jon and my wife Jenni and I started MissionaryMall back in 1997.  We have one son serving in Europe and another son getting ready to put in his papers in the next few weeks, so we understand the concerns of those of you who are preparing as well as those who currently have missionaries in the field.

We're so thankful for home-centered, Church supported worship, especially now that some of us will have an MTC in our homes!  We are also very grateful that church leaders as well as those in local, state, and federal government are taking drastic and immediate action to minimize the impact of Covid-19.  To read more about Covid-19 from the Church Newsroom, click here.
In order to help with preparing for your mission during this time, here's what we're doing! 
Contact Us by Phone, Text, and FaceTime:  Several years ago we switched our landline phone systems over to iPhones, so not only can we receive calls, but we can also text and FaceTime.  We can answer questions, show you how to take measurements, show you features of clothing and accessories, give advice, and help you virtually shop our stores.

MissionaryMall Store Status:  Our stores are are open!    
 
Here is a list of the current number of cases and where they are located  https://coronavirus.utah.gov/latest/ along with a lot of other info from Utah.

Store Precautions:  In addition to our store cleaning/sanitizing routines, we also have a contract with EnviroMasters to deep clean and sanitize bathrooms in our Orem stores.  For the safety of our employees and customers, please don't shop in our stores if you have any cold, allergy, or flu-like symptoms!  We have a ton of other ways to shop (see below) if you are feeling even the slightest bit under the weather.  
Body Temperature Scanners:  We now have non-touch body temperature scanners being in our stores so we can self-check and check customers for fevers.  China and South Korea are about 50 days ahead of us, and when they lifted their quarantine, they began scanning everyone at every entrance to work, transit, shopping, etc.  We wanted to get ahead of the curve by starting temperature scans early and we will be able to make non-touch body temperature scanners available for sale as well as UV sanitizing wands.

Current Inventory:  Fortunately, we were able to do almost all of our purchasing for this coming busy season back in December and January.  As such we are currently fully stocked in suits, dress pants, golf pants, shirts, ties, luggage, bags, belts, socks, shoes, skirts, blouses, dresses, etc.  Ironically, we do have quite a few suppliers in states that are totally shut down and cannot ship product, so when that inventory is gone, it is gone until May.

Future Inventory:  As is the case for the majority of retail stores, our future shipments have been delayed by an estimated 6-8 weeks.  As far as we can predict using past sales history, we have planned well enough and ordered enough early in the year that it shouldn't be a problem.  That being said, if you are planning on going on a mission this year, it may be wise to start to prepare early so that if there are any shortages in the future, you have your gear ready to go.  Shopping early also ensures that you'll get exactly what you want instead of settling for whatever is left over if shipments are further delayed.  

We ask you to remember the quote that missionaries all over the world are familiar with!  “The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done” (History of the Church, 4:540).
President Nelson also stated that missionary work would continue since it is essential to the gathering of Israel.  Click here to read.  
Missionary work will continue.  The Church of Jesus Christ is no stranger to trials.  Let's show the world strength, resolve, let our light shine, and serve how we can.
 
Thank you!
Jon and Jenni
