As of Tuesday, May 19, we're re-opening to limited in-store shopping. We encourage continuing to use online ordering and curbside pick-up or delivery, especially if you know exactly what you want. If you’re comfortable shopping in-store, we’ve developed the following processes and guidelines that we believe will keep both our families and yours as safe as possible.

 

OUR NEW STORE PROCESSES IN-STORE SHOPPING GUIDELINES

We are ...

  • Constantly monitoring our own health and social contacts

  • Washing our hands frequently 

  • Cleaning high-touch areas of the store frequently, the debit machine between uses

  • Cashing out from behind a plexiglass guard

  • Accepting e-transfers as payment

  • Sanitizing any cash received and providing you with sanitized change

  • Allowing bags brought from home if you are willing to pack them yourself

  • Limiting the number of customers in the store to about 4 at a time

  • Making in-the-moment decisions about how best to manage in-store shopping

Please help us by ...

  • Doing “targeted shopping” (ie, having some idea of what you’re looking for); we are just not yet ready to accommodate browsing

  • Sanitizing your hands when you enter the store

  • Keeping your small family group together - keep small children in strollers or within arms reach, remind older children to mostly look

  • Limiting your visit so that more customers can be accommodated

  • Taking off gloves that have been worn outside/other places; we have a limited number of disposable gloves for you to wear

  • Masks are welcome and encouraged; we will wear one as well if that is your preference
