Many of you thought we might be open on Friday....We are still open, but for curbside pickups only! We will continue this and hold steady for now as we forge ahead.
It is our plan to slowly bring our staff back and train them on my new systems. That way all of us can learn to operate safely together and still serve your supply needs. We will continue to follow all local, state, and CDC guidelines for maintaining operations that keep everyone safe.
As much as we would love to fling wide the doors and let you all come rushing in, we find ourselves in the position to take that very slowly. We have 18 amazing employees and have kept all of them this whole time. There are more of us than guidelines allow so I will get my team safely operating before we determine how to safely let the doors be open. My people mean the world to me and I know you feel the same about them. Continuing to offer pickups is what we feel the wisest plan is for a little while- thank you for understanding.
I’m so glad that so many of you have enjoyed our curbside pickup service. I look forward to making it better as we have the added ideas of my team.
Stay strong & hang in there, Portland!!
