We will be doing appointment shopping only. All shoppers are required to sign up for a shopping appointment. These appointments slots are for 60 minutes and will be 45 minutes of shopping and then 15 minutes to check put and allow us to effectively sanitize and disinfect. These appointments are limited due to capacity limits and are first come first serve. At current capacity limits set by the State due to Covid-19 we will only be allowing 30 shoppers per appointment.
If you feel like you need more time to shop you may sign up for multiple appointments. If your appointments are booked back-to-back, you will be allowed to shop the first 1:45 hour and checkout during the last 15 minutes (you will not have to check out at the end of your first appointment.) If you are unable to secure back-to-back shopping appointments, you will be required to check out at end of each appointment. No items will be held after the end of a shopping appointment time slot.
We will be accepting CASH and Credit/Debit Cards during shopping hours.
We have extended our shopping hours to 4 days to help accommodate the time requirements and anticipated need.
Tickets go on sale on .......February 10th at 10am!
Tickets must be purchased online to secure a shopper’s place and reduce the number of possible no shows. They can be purchased online at our website. Ticket prices will range from $5 to $15 per appointment slot (higher amounts for the higher demand appointments). When you check in you will receive a $5 off your purchase coupon to be used that appointment only. Any proceeds from the sale of tickets will be donated to the Food Bank. Tickets are non-refundable unless we are mandated by the state to close.
Shoppers must remain in their cars until 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment. While waiting to get into the building you will be required to stand 6” apart as marked. If you arrive late for your appointment time your time will not be extended past the scheduled appointment time. Due to limited staffing if you arrive more than 5 minutes past your appointment start times the door will be locked but there is a buzzer to the left of the door where a team member will come to let you in.
A ticket is required for anyone entering the building. If you must bring a child/infant or anyone else with you, you will be required to purchase a ticket for them online. This again is to keep track of numbers and make sure everyone has a safe shopping experience.
All shoppers and team member will be required to wear face coverings while we are open to the public. If you cannot wear a face covering due to medical reasons, please contact me as soon as possible to discuss alternative accommodations. My email is email@example.com
We will not be supplying our “Big Blue Bags” for shopping as they cannot be adequately disinfected. You may bring your own shopping bag/tote/laundry basket, but no wagons/strollers are allowed. At check out all purchased items MUST be placed in our white bags and securely closed; large items will have their price tags stamped.
All aisles will be marked One Way where possible. Please stay at least 6 feet away from other shoppers when possible. Our checkout line will be marked to ensure the 6 feet of social distancing.
No paper receipts will be given. Please tell the cashier prior to beginning your transaction if you need a receipt, so they can email it to you.
All sales are final, and no returns will be accepted for any reason. Please see a team member if you need to inspect an item to ensure it is working properly/all pieces enclosed prior to purchase.
Our Restrooms will NOT be open to the public. Hand Sanitizers will be available throughout the building for public use. We will be following all required protocol for cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day.
