We need volunteers!
... to come in on WEEKDAYS ! (and buy stuff) ...

As all our regular visitors know,
our store has many, many customers on Saturdays and Sundays.
Perhaps ... if 60% of you weekend customers would simply come in Monday thru Friday,
rather than Saturday and Sunday,
it would help greatly with our effort to obtain "social distancing".
For example, today was a Wednesday, we had maybe 15 customers come in at random over the 8 hours ... that's about 1 customer every half hour.
We could easily handle 45 customers over 8 hours ... that's about 1 customer every 11 minutes.
If something close to that could happen during the week,
that would reduce the crazy over-crowding on the weekend by A WHOLE LOT.
So, we are loving it when we have customers,
but we just wish you could spread your visits out to the 7 days, rather than just the 2 days.

Of course if you are coughing or sneezing, please do not visit.
If you want, for any reason, we can ship almost any dry goods (and some fish.)
You can also call ahead, we can pack your order, and deliver to the parking lot.

Dan and I and the usual staff will be here regular hours,
noon - 8, Monday - Saturday ... noon - 6 Sunday.

Thank you in advance for you cooperation !
