After much deliberation and consultation, I have decided to temporarily shutter our retail store in Almonte. Quite frankly, we are a non-essential business with a large and fluid clientele, many of whom are in a vulnerable age bracket, and keeping our store open during these very uncertain coming days and weeks poses an unnecessary risk to both our customers and our staff. Even more so, when I consider that I have two asthmatics and an essential health-care worker in my own household.
I wish to stress that we will continue to be an active and viable company during this closure, and will be monitoring our telephone and email messages daily in order to respond to your enquiries, orders, and concerns.
Our largest-ever Winter Catalogue will be released over the next week or so, and our robust ebay “Weird & Wonderful” sales will also continue over the next few weeks.
We encourage everyone to use any voluntary isolation as an opportunity to reinvigorate your collecting activities, and are happy to offer our full and prompt shipping services for the duration of our closure.
We sincerely thank everyone for their support and understanding, and look forward to reopening our gallery and returning to a normal schedule once we determine it is safe and prudent to do so.
