We need each other now more than ever.
I'm not going to get political here. I am just going to point out that all you have to do is look around your own household or social media feeds to find people who are struggling to stay positive and connected. Staying home to work, learn, shop is tough. We are inherently social beings and scrolling along social media feeds can also take it's toll on your mental health. From Covid statistics to world events, it's tough out there.
So remember we are your safe social. We always have been interested in having a great conversation while you shop. We have learned and experienced so much together! And after 20+ years we aren't changing that fact because our world is upside down right now.
We hope you see our relationship with you as symbiotic. We get to have a business that we enjoy and support your local community and you get to have a safe, interesting and caring place to shop. With vaccines on the horizon for some, we still have a lot to manage. But, come do it with us safely. We have appointment shopping, drop by shopping within our capacity limits, curbside pick up, online shopping and virtual shopping. We are doing our best to be safe and to keep our store going. We will still want to kibitz about life and stuff, no matter how to choose to shop with us!
Shopping with us also is extra important to both you and us right now.
Working, schooling yourself or kids, having more family under foot (is your partner at home leaving the cheese and empty cracker packages on the counter after lunch?), trying to do some physical exercise at home because your gym is closed, how to do a Covid birthday, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning; ... there are many more and different things pressing on us these days. Take a moment. Shop with us (if you are able to). It's a safe way to support local and get some human* interaction!
*Not that we're saying your family isn't human... ;)
