SHOPPING AND MEALS
We are open for shopping on Mondays and Tuesdays, 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm and Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm (last shopper will be welcomed 15 minutes before closing or until we reach capacity, whichever comes first). We are providing a hand washing station prior to entering into the Free Store. Masks will be provided to you if you do not have one. We are requesting only one shopper per family come into the Free Store. Exceptions are made for those who do not have childcare for young children and for those who need someone to assist them to shop. Personal care items and diapers are available at checkout. Take-home meals are provided from our take-out window on the west side of our store (Potter Street).
We understand that this is vastly different than our normal operations. We are adhering to all the guidelines that are in place and we want to ensure that everyone from shopper, to volunteer, to staff, are all safe. We are as anxious as anyone else to serve you, our community, at full capacity. We will continue to reassess and open up more as we are safely able to do so.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move forward.
