If you're one of our local Minnesota shoppers, you've likely heard the news by now that we can reopen tomorrow (Monday, May 18th)!
For two months, our shop has been shuttered for in person shopping (though your online purchases carried us through this tricky time and we are so grateful for each and every one).
And now, our doors are to be opened once again so that we can give you the face to face attention we've been missing so much. But it's going to look a little different, so I wanted to take a moment to lay out what shopping safely looks like in downtown Prior Lake.
On Monday we've expanded our hours for the day to 10-6 before heading back to our regular schedule for the rest of the week. We'll have our Wild Ruffle products spaced out between the front sidewalk, the hallway entrance, and our shop, allowing for more people to socially distance while browsing. A checkout station will be located outside in addition to our usual one inside the shop itself, making for less waiting time and a smaller chance of having to squeeze closer than six feet to the person ahead of you.
Each shop has committed to following the same safety protocols. We'll have masks on while we work, and at our store we'll have plenty of masks on hand that'll be available for just $1 for anyone who wants one that may not have brought any along.
Hospital grade hand sanitizer is ready and waiting for your hands - you'll find them in a couple of locations throughout WR. Our staff is equipped with cleaning products so we can cleanse high touch areas on a regular basis. Though our sneeze guard hasn't arrived just yet, our point of sale system is a contactless one, which means only you touch your credit card.
If you're not quite ready to experience in store shopping just yet, not to worry! We'll be continuing our curbside pickup option as long as you'd like. And since we ship everywhere, online shopping is always a good way to go! Click here to get started. Our Mystery Boxes are still available, online only - an incredible value that makes it worth clicking 'add to cart.'
Small boutiques stand on the verge of closure, and we are incredibly excited to have been given the go ahead to open once again. Thank you in advance for doing your part to shop small!
And hey - let's be sure to give our local restaurants some love too... we are already seeing their numbers dwindle, and many of them can't operate at 50% capacity and make it. While we are pumped to be heading toward 'normal' at WR, we haven't forgotten that many of our other small business owning friends are still suffering.
Can't wait to see you this week!
