2020 Arkansas Store Opening During COVID-19
We, the owners and employees (Faith and Bill) have decided on the "Noah's Ark" approach to opening our store. We will not be the First Dove, but we will be open way before the sloths get off the Ark.
1. There is a freaking coronavirus.
2. We have a very small (750 ft.) store that is located in the basement of our home.
3. We are (unfortunately) a "little" older than we may appear. (This one is a real bummer...)
4. People love to spend a long time in our store. (This is normally a great thing!)
5. We are the employees... If we are sick, we will be closed! Feel free to call to verify we are open! 870-898-0869
1. We will be opening outside only! We are currently re-building our outside to meet the current needs. This includes:
a. Outside handing washing station.
b. Customer areas to gather your purchases and decide at your own pace.
c. Employee work area to pack your purchases while maintaining social distancing.
2. New "Normal" Behaviors. This includes:
a. Please go home if you feel even a little sick! (We still love you...)
b. Washing hands.
c. Social distancing. 6 feet please!
d. Wearing masks. (The unpopular one...) We will be wearing masks and ask that you do to.
e. Cleaning common areas between each group of customers.
