Holiday Shopping: Safely & Locally

With holiday shopping quickly approaching and Covid-19 cases on the increase, we wanted to highlight a variety of ways we offer to help you shop safely while still shopping locally.

The East Village shop continues to be open for in-store shopping. We require all shoppers to properly wear a face covering which fully covers both nose and mouth at all times while in the store. The AllSpice team wears them at all times too. Our space is less-than-huge, so we also limit the number of people in the shop to prevent things from becoming too congested.

We offer free curbside pickup of online orders. And it’s easy. Just shop online, select curbside pick-up at the East Village location as your shipping option (note: you’ll have to provide a shipping address first, then will see curbside pick-up as an option), and submit your order.

We typically have orders ready within an hour or two of receiving them. You’ll receive a confirmation email from us when it’s ready. When you arrive you can come into the store (with a mask, of course) or give us a call and we’ll bring it right out to your car.

New this year is Des Moines local delivery. Live in the Des Moines area? If you’re in our delivery area, we offer local delivery to your doorstep for just $5. We deliver at least every other day, meaning your items will get to you quicker than they will via shipping.

We ship anywhere in the U.S. We will ship online orders anywhere in the U.S. via USPS. There’s even a spot for you to include a personal message to the recipient (if it’s not you), so this is a great way to send gifts to loved ones you won’t see this year without having to make a run to the post office.

Many other locally-owned businesses in the East Village and Des Moines offer similar services. On behalf of all of us, thank you for continuing to support your local businesses!
