Small Business Heroes – Ajay’s Upholstery

The Town Center CID recognizes local companies who are reaching out, fulfilling needs, and aiding their neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis. These are just a few of their stories:

Ajay’s Upholstery
2641 Summers St., Kennesaw

Ajay’s Upholstery is a family-owned shop in Kennesaw. For years, the store has been one of Cobb’s go-to shops for everything from car and boat re-upholstery, to refinishing your favorite living room couch and more. During these times of uncertainty, they came up with a way to put their skills to a use — making reusable PPE (non-medical) masks. Thus far, they have donated more than 1,000 masks.

These efforts began when shop owner Bibi Husain wanted to send masks to the hospital in New York where her cousins work. Shortly after sending them, the CDC began to encourage homemade masks as an alternative to medical masks for the general public. At that point, Husain and the rest of her family got to work with the goal of making as many masks and they can.
