After two months of in-store shopping being closed, we are ready to begin reopening our stores. As you may expect, we are reopening with the health and safety of our customers and staff as our number one priority. You’ll notice some changes to the in-store shopping experience. These changes are all being implemented with guidance from national, state and local authorities to ensure we are operating in compliance with the current restrictions in place. As we move forward in this new normal, please be patient with our new policies.
Here’s what you can expect in this first phase of reopening for our physical locations:
Safety Comes First
- We ask that everyone who comes into our physical store locations, please respect the health and safety of yourself and our staff by adhering to our posted policies.
- We’ve outlined procedures for our staff to continue to provide our award winning Right Fit™ service while adhering to all safety standards.
Offering curbside pick up and online shopping
Over the past two months, we have implemented a number of new ways to shop with us minimizing contact with others. We will be continuing some of these services to keep options open for those who would still like to shop from the comfort of home:
