What We've Changed to Improve Safety:
Hand sanitizer station at the front door
Sneeze guard at register
Regular disinfecting of counter, credit card machine, door handles, etc.
Fans installed upstairs to increase fresh air ciculation throughout the building
Entire store rearranged to create more room for social distancing
Candy, buttons, and small unpackaged items have been removed
It took some time to make these changes and we appreciate your patience. We're now ready to serve our community during this time of pain and healing.
As you likely know, we've also been responding to the crisis thoughout Minneapolis and Saint Paul caused by police violence and the murder of George Floyd. We are deeply saddend and angered by his death and heartbroken by the police reaction to nonviolent protesters and the widespread destruction that resulted. As we have in the past, we're selling Black Lives Matter signs and donating proceeds to charity.
So far, we've distributed 150 signs. Here's where we've donated so far:
Thank you all for making this possible. More signs are available at $12 each plus $2 if you need a lawn fork.
Robin update: A pair of robins made their nest in our sign this spring. The chicks are growing quickly and they look like they'll be fledging soon. Our front patio will be closed until they leave the nest but feel free to take a peek from the sidewalk.
