A San Francisco boutique has filed a class action lawsuit against insurance company Travelers for failing to pay business interruption claims related to COVID-19.

Children's boutique and gift shop Mudpie is a longtime family run business. Manager Sarah Perliss says the brick and mortar store had to quickly pivot to online and curbside options in light of COVID-19.

"It's impacted us drastically the sales are nothing like what our daily sales were," said Perliss.

Perliss says she's trying to stay positive.

"It's my livelihood, it's a very creative outlet and it's my passion," she explained. According to a class action lawsuit, Mudpie purchased comprehensive commercial liability and property insurance from Travelers to insure against risks the business might face.

Perliss filed a claim with Travelers for the interruption to her business, but it was denied.
