To our wonderful customers: 

We have been ordered by the governor to close our doors and cease operations by noon on Tuesday, March  24 until further notice.  We are not allowed to be on the premises, and cannot conduct any business during that interval.   We are accepting orders only through the website, not by phone or e-mail, during this interval. Orders will be shipped; you will not be able to pick them up at the store.  And please know that those orders will be delayed until after the governor's order is lifted.

We want to thank you for all the understanding, support and encouragement you have shown us during this extraordinary time.  We will be there for you as soon as we can. as you have been there for us.

Stay well--we'll get through this together!
