As We Draw Our Journey to a Close

We write this at a time of mixed emotions. And there’s really no reason to gloss over things, let’s quickly get right to the point - as of June 1, 2021, Modern Roots Marketing will close. There you have it…in some ways it’s a relief because this was a very difficult decision that had to be made, and in other ways it brings on a period of mourning. Believe us, this is the last thing we wanted to do but sometimes you just have to take a big bite of reality and move on.

One thing we can definitely say is that we are grateful. Grateful for our incredible clients, for the support of our family & friends, and for the wonderful people within the small business & nonprofit communities that we’ve partnered with since we opened in 2018. There is a great sense of camaraderie that we’ve shared with many along the way and that is priceless!

In addition, we are most grateful that our losses were not greater. We have so much empathy for all of the other businesses who have had to not only close due to the effects of COVID-19, but have incurred significant financial debt, and day-to-day personal & professional hardship, because of it.

Finally, in light of this announcement we want our community to know that we’re still here for you. Each of us will continue as freelancers with the goal of doing what we love and providing valuable services. We end this chapter with a positive outlook for the future and a great sense of hope for better things ahead.
