Safety Protocols During COVID-19 Pandemic

We are open!

Cases of COVID-19 are still high in Idaho and the vaccination rate is very low. To enter our store, you MUST follow these safety protocols to protect our employees and customers. Customers who refuse or have a medical exemption for a mask are welcome to shop online or via phone instead. We are happy to provide curbside service. If you refuse, we will ask you to leave. If you do not leave when requested, we will call the police for assistance. Thank you!

  1. Wear a mask. We will provide one (as supplies last) if you do not have one.

  2. Use hand sanitizer when you enter.

  3. Stay behind the red velvet rope at the front counters.

  4. Maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and other customers and staff.

  5. No children under the age of 8 unless they are in a stroller or in your arms.

  6. No more than 10 customers in the store at a time.

When you click on "Browse" in the menu bar above, you'll get a generic browse page, but then if you put your cursor back on the "Browse" item in the menu bar, you'll see a long drop-down menu of all the pages we've been creating for you.
