Re-Opening May 1st

We are happy to announce that we will be open for business starting May 1st. A few changes will take place to follow the “Safer at Home” measures.

  • Customers will be required to remain 6ft apart. We will mark spacing on the floor.
  • No more than 5 customers can be in the store at anytime.
  • Wash your hands. You can use our restroom (wipe everything you touched after) and we will have hand sanitizer if you need it.
  • Do not touch your face. Wear a face mask to avoid touching your nose and mouth.
  • If you are sick, at risk, or think you may have been exposed, Stay at Home! If any of the staff catches Covid 19, the store will be closed for a min. of two weeks and nobody wants that.

Reopening Announcement… Finally!

We will be open for Curbside pick up starting April 28th and Open to the public starting May 1st with social distancing measures in place. Thank you for your support. Stay tuned for more info.

We are temporarily closing shop at the end of day March 22.

This is due to the health concerns for our staff and customers, as well as increasingly strict state and federal quarantine mandates. We will spend most of next week evaluating what we can do to best serve our customers, figuring out how to optimize our resources, and maintaining our online store.
We appreciate your continued support.

  • Our Last Day open will be 3/22 and we are not sure how long this will take but some of the mandates say April 30th, so It could be as far out as then.
  • Please tune into the Live-Streams this weekend and give us whatever support you can.
  • Unless previous arrangements were made we cannot give cash for trade-ins for a while. (at least this weekend and possibly beyond.)
  • We will live-stream an update on Sat. April 2 @ 2pm to let you know where we are at and maybe pimp some merch so stay tuned for that as well.
