CHICO, Calif.- It's been more than 4 weeks since Governor Newsom issued a stay-at-home order causing many businesses to close their doors.

One popular shoe store in Chico is adjusting by offering a new way to shop. They've launched a new website where people can now buy online. 

Heel and Sole Shoes, located on Mangrove Avenue has been closed since March 20th, but is now selling their inventory through the new website. 

Owners, Adriana and Gloria Covarrubias say the hardest part has been having to lay off all of their employees and not having any income coming in. "We still have a lot of bills and stuff to pay even though the doors are closed. We had to think about the safety of our workers and our community first and then we looked at how we could keep going." Gloria said.

She says they have been getting a lot of calls from essential workers and people in the community who still need shoes, so they wanted to help. 

People can simply go to their website, HEELNSOLESHOES.COM and click on the shoes you want, pay for them and then stop by during their curbside hours, and they will deliver the shoes to your car. 

If you don't want to pick them up at the store, they can also ship them to you.

They are offering free shipping on orders over $100. 

The store is still closed to the public but the curbside pick-up is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you do not see a specific shoe you're looking for, you can call them during that time and they will help you over the phone.  

All of the sales are final. 

Heel and Sole Customers, John and Dora Dane say they're happy about the new website. "I think it's great, everybody needs to work and a lot of people are out of work so I'm always glad when someone is doing a little extra with their business to try to accomodate us," said John. 

Gloria says they are going to do their best to continue serving the community.

They have also started a GoFundMe page to be able to keep paying for the fixed costs while the business is closed, so that they are able to re-open when its safe to do so. To donate,  CLICK HERE. 

Heel and Sole Shoes is located at 708 Mangrove Ave in Chico.
