The store opened its physical doors in late 2020, with all social distancing protocols in place, including sidewalk seating, reduced indoor seating, rigorous cleaning practices, plenty of hand sanitizer, curbside pick-up and home delivery. Current store hours are from 8 am – 3 pm, 7 days a week. The store will open for expanded hours in the coming weeks.
