Coronavirus Update: May 29th
Hello everyone! Just a couple of updates as stores are beginning to open and restrictions are lifted nationwide.
We are not opening the store for in-person shopping at this time. We do not feel comfortable having customers inside the store (it’s a tight space! And how on earth could we disinfect fabric!?) and the safety of our customers, our employees, and ourselves is our first priority. When will we be opening? No idea! We are closely following national statistics and moving forward based on those trends; cases and deaths continue to rise, especially in Los Angeles county. We’d rather be safe than sorry.
We are still fulfilling online orders but we are not offering curbside pickup at this time. We will not be offering curbside pickup for at least 30 days. We worry that the laxing of social distancing might cause an increase in spread and so we are going to wait to see if there is another spike and then reassess the situation.
Don’t get me wrong, I want more than anything for our concerns to be “overdramatic” and that we do not see a spike in the next month; I cannot wait for everyone to come back into the store. Since March 13th Julie and I have worked 6 days a week, 7 hours a day ONLY THE TWO OF US—I love my mother, but 462 hours together is A LOT OF TIME (yes, I did the math) and would love other human interaction. But we wait.
As of May 29th, we will not be opening up the store for machine service, instore shopping, curbside pickup, or classes. We will reevaluate the situation in 30 days and will update you all as soon as there are any changes.
We love and miss you all. Thank you for being so understanding!
