Vibe Check #18: CLOT's Kevin Poon Shows Us What Post-Pandemic Life is Like

Vibe Check

For Kevin Poon, co-founder of Hong Kong-based label CLOT and boutique retailer JUICE, the Covid-19 pandemic is long past lockdown and at the very early stages of getting back to normal. “It feels like we’re watching the same movie, but we’re 40 minutes ahead,” he says in today’s episode of Vibe Check.He’s in a very fortunate position as a small business owner, where he’s had the opportunity to actually open a new location instead of shuttering several during this weird time in history. He recently opened a branch of his Elephant Grounds Cafe in Chengdu, albeit with strong social distancing measures in place and a business model that primarily revolves around to-go orders.But he’s also experiencing a bit of what economists have called “revenge spending” in Asian countries where malls and clothing stores are reopening, cautiously welcoming consumers who are more than eager to cop up fresh gear. Listen to the full episode to hear what it’s looking like on the other side of the pandemic.Stay tuned for new episodes of ‘Vibe Check’ released every Tuesday and Thursday.
