The Clothes Closet IS open for shopping and donating.
HOWEVER, due to COVID19, we have updated our processes.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.

SHOPPING

SHOP IN-STORE – guidelines are the same for clients and the general public.

You MUST wear a face mask that covers your mouth and nose and follow social distancing guidelines while shopping.

We will welcome seven (7) shoppers at a time for 20 minute shopping sessions.
The Clothes Closet is open for shopping only at the following times:

  • Tuesdays – 9:30 am – 7:00 pm
  • Wednesdays – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Thursdays – 9:30 am – 4:00 pm
  • Fridays – 9:30 am – 3:00 pm
  • No appointment necessary.
  • Shopping visits are limited to 20 minutes per person.
  • No children allowed. (if you cannot visit without bringing your children, call
    804-556-0202 to speak to Rhonda or Lisa to make individual arrangements.)
  • Masks are required and non-negotiable.
  • If you cannot wear a mask, you may call 804-556-0202 to order by phone and arrange curbside pick-up

Safety is our top priority. We may deny entry based on the following:

  • All customers are to enter by the main Clothes Closet Door on the far side of the building. (The rest of the building is still closed to visitors who are not accompanied by staff.)
  • We will take your temperature when you enter the store. (If your temperature is over 100.4, you will be asked to return when you have not had a fever for more than 24 hours.)
  • We will ask you about any COVID-19 symptoms when you enter the store. (If you have symptoms, we will ask you to make an appointment after 10 days of no symptoms.)
  • We will ask you if you have been exposed to or in contact with anyone that might have the COVID-19 virus. (If you have been exposed, we will ask you to make an appointment after 14 days of self-quarantine.)
  • We will maintain six (6) feet of distance between each person at all times and will remind you to maintain social distancing during your visit.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to prioritize the safety of our staff, clients, volunteers, and shoppers.
