Fantastic March is behind us and we are welcoming April, which promises to be even more fabulous thanks to your quality consignments!
As you all know, Easter this year is celebrated Sunday, April 4. We will be closed April 2 and April 3 for Good Friday and Holy Saturday. We will reopen Monday, April 5. As a courtesy to our consignors, we have added one more take-in day for household consignments on Wednesday, April 21.
To make it more comfortable and convenient, we reopened the dressing rooms March 15, and are cash effective March 20th! Thank you again for being so understanding during this tough time. Your patience never goes unnoticed!
Regarding the COVID-19 situation, although there is no longer a statewide mask order in public places, we do not want to jeopardize the safety of our customers, consignors, volunteers and employees. As a private business, we require masks be worn in our store. We continue to operate at 50% capacity with temperature checks at the door, hand sanitizer throughout the store and frequent cleanings. Help us out by social distancing, whether in line to consign, in dressing rooms, shopping in close quarters or checking out at the register. If you are not feeling well, stay home!
Please be aware that one of our most important rules of consignment is that the consignor must be present to drop off items or pick up a check. If you are unable and absolutely MUST authorize someone else to perform these tasks for you, please bring us a notarized letter stating so, including the full name and contact information of the person designated. We will keep this letter on file to refer to moving forward. This rule protects you from someone fraudulently using your name or taking your check without your permission.
We kindly remind you NOT to put your first and last name with the account number on your consignment items, as the process of their removal to protect your personal identity delays tagging your items.
We thank you all again for your continued support and patronage. Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous spring!
