In light of the CDC’s latest statement, we are updating our mask policy, effective Monday, March 7th.
- After 12:00pm, we will not REQUIRE masks, although it is recommended and they will still be available in the store.
- Employees will still be masked for the time being.
- Masks will still be required until 12:00pm every day.
- Private shopping appointments are still available outside of our regularly scheduled hours!
More detailed information:
Based on Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax County’s high vaccination rates, and lower COVID numbers and hospitalizations, we will NO LONGER require masks after noon. We still recommend them, and the employees will still be masked in the store for the time being, but we will allow customers to forego them if they prefer. We also recommend six-foot social distancing in the store to the extent feasible.
We will still require masks until noon, to allow shopping time for people who still rely on masking for their health and safety for various reasons (ineligible for vaccination, immuno-compromised, and so on).
We also still have private shopping appointments available, for people who prefer not to be in a crowd. Email or call us at least 24 hours in advance, and we can schedule a time before or after our regular store hours for you to come in and have the store to yourself!
