b"STAY TRUE TO YOUR VALUESWhile the world has changed around us, the core values that guide Pollock Properties Group have remained constant: Care, Serve, Give. They define who we were, who we are and who we will be. Certainly Covid has prompted us to adjust our strategies for how we do businessincorporating digital brochures, Zoom consultations and video messages to our clientsbut these are simply new ways to care for and serve our clients. We can always count on change but it's so much easier to adapt when we know what we stand for.VANESSA POLLOCKKELLER WILLIAMS - POLLOCK PROPERTIES GROUP518 Millburn Avenue, Short Hills 917-723-4006|pollockpropertiesgroup.comKEEP MOVING FORWARD A STRONG VISIONBistro dAzur was a brand new restaurant when the pandemic hit. We had been on track with our business plan and were named one of the best new restaurants in NJ. Our war cry throughout has been failure is not an option. Instead of closing, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work, adjusting our business during each phase and focusing on our strong vision of providing chef-driven artisanal French Mediterranean cuisine. Our community deserves the fine dining we offer and we plan on delivering it for the long haul. MARY CONWAYBISTRO D'AZUR14 Academy Street, South Orange When the pandemic hit and we were forced into973-327-9725|bistrodazur.comquarantine, we lost our sense of normalcy. In some ways, we lost our sense of selves. Everything was uncertain. I felt fear take over as our economic and social stability collapsed around us. But I didn't want fear to be my new normal. I needed to move forward and imagine us coming together again. Now, when I step foot into Lumie Salon, I feel transported. The airy and rejuvenating space reflects my hope, which is my offering to you.KOSIA ASIAMAH LUMIE SALON260 Valley Street, South Orange 973-327-9555|lumiesalon.com34/ matters magazine / fall 2020"
