As we reopen the doors to our shop on June 1st, we want to thank you in advance for your patience as we work to keep you and our staff safe. We understand that, especially in the beginning, this may feel different and at times even be a bit awkward. We will make every effort to provide the same atmosphere that makes our shop so unique while also taking added measures to provide a safe shopping experience for all involved.
Moving forward, here are the 5 ways you can shop with us:
- At our Physical Location starting June 1st in Portland, Maine, with a limit of 5 customers in the store at one time, during our normal business hours of 10 am to 5 pm.
- Private Shopping by Appointment in the Store for you and up to 4 other people of your choice starting June 1st. Enjoy a private shopping experience, with Michael or John, while the store is closed to the public.
- Video Communication Appointment. Private shopping experience via Google Hangout.
- Telephone Appointment. Set up a private shopping by appointment phone call. We will follow up with images and measurements via text or email.
