The physical location of Nipsey Hussle‘s Marathon Clothing store might be closed, but its online leg has continued to thrive several months after the rapper’s death on March 31.
On Monday, representatives for the store issued a statement and said they’ve made a huge progress in getting out many of the backorders.
“Out team’s obligation to fulfill the hundreds of thousands of orders that had been placed is what gave us purpose,” read an Instagram message. “With heavy hearts our team banded together to get the orders shipped.”
The representatives also said they had to make a few changes after the massive number of orders came in, which contributed to the delay in shipment.
“With the extreme amount of orders placed, we had to quickly scale up production and find a much larger warehouse to ship product from. Materials needed for production were sold out and some items were taking 2 to 3 months to be ready.”
They also acknowledged that some people have been waiting for their orders since April and thanked everyone for being so patient.
On top of that, the reps said they were grateful for people taking them from “tables in a parking lot to opening our own flagship store.”
