On Monday, June 1, we’ll be cautiously reopening for in store shopping. We’re very much ready to see you all again – and we’re taking steps to prioritize your safety and the safety of our team as we invite you in.
If you plan to step away from the web browser and visit us in person, here’s what you need to know:
A mask or face covering is required inside the store. You’ll need to wear one to enter, and you’ll see all staff wearing them as well. Why are we requiring masks inside the shop? Because the CDC recommends it, especially when it’s difficult to maintain six feet of distance between one another.
We are limiting the number of people inside at a time. Of all the times we’ve wished we had a few extra square feet, this one is at the top! Allowing a reasonable number of people inside at a time will help everyone shop comfortably. A sign will invite you to come on in or let you know to wait for someone to exit before heading inside.
Shop solo, or with only one other person. Because we’re limiting the number of people in the shop at once, we’re asking that you shop solo or with no more than one other person from your household. Just like the grocery store, we’re recommending you make a list so you can shop efficiently.
Sanitize. We’ll have hand sanitizer available for you to use upon entry and throughout your visit to the store. We’ll be sanitizing throughout the shop multiple times daily.
We will also be returning to our normal business hours, Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. We’ll continue to suspend sampling and the bottle refill program for the time being.
We’re taking all of these measures because we care about you and our team. Following these and other recommendations from the CDC along with practicing proper food handling protocol and good hygiene are the best tools we have to reduce the risk of someone becoming ill.
We understand some folks aren’t yet comfortable venturing out, and others might not want to wear a mask or face covering. We’re happy to continue offering online shopping through allspiceonline.com with free curb-side pick-up, $5 local delivery in the Des Moines area, or USPS shipping to meet your needs.
