We are excited to announce that we are now reopened!
However we want to exercise caution, especially since many of our customers fall into the higher risk categories, and we want everyone to feel safe when they are here. Here are our current hours and procedures:
We are open from 10-2, Tuesday-Saturday
This will allow me to have uninterrupted time when the shop is closed to work on mail orders for those customers not ready to come shop in person yet.
We will only allow 3 people in the store at a time
I know having shopper limitations can be tricky, because everyone may show up at the same time and then I will have to turn people away. If you are concerned about that, you are welcome to reserve a shopping time in advance. Shoppers with reservations will be allowed in first, then walk ins as space allows. Reservations can be held by calling 727-495-0803 between 10 and 2. I will work with each shopper individually to reserve an available time that works for you. Please note that reservations are not required, it’s just an extra service I’m offering to those who want to take advantage.
Social distancing must be respected, and masks are encouraged
I will ask that when you are in the store shopping that you give the other shoppers their space. If someone else is perusing the Delicas, please enjoy another part of the store until they are done. If you have a mask, we appreciate you wearing it here, and I will do the same. I will not be on the floor with shoppers a lot; I’ll mostly be staying behind the counter. These open hours are designed specifically for those of you that prefer to make your own selections, rather than having me choose products for you. (Although I enjoyed putting together projects packs for all of you during the time we were closed — it’s a lot of fun and I’ll continue to do so for those of you continuing to stay home!)
The back of the store will remain closed
This means there will be no access to the restrooms, classroom or coffee area for the time being. This will make the continued sanitizing of the store easier for me and safer for all of us.
I’ll continue to be without my team’s assistance until we can get back up closer to our regular business levels, so I appreciate everyone’s patience. Most of all though I appreciate all your kind support of Laura’s Beads during this challenging time!
