And that means, it's doing what we can the best way we know how.
We got power restored and suffered no damage here at the store from Storm Sandy. We were very lucky.
After having to close for a few days because of the storm, we were able to open the doors again Saturday November 3rd. We were able to offer our strip cords to those who needed to charge their cell phones. Our bathrooms were working and we were able to offer anyone who needed to clean up and use them, to do just that. We were also able to make and offer coffee.
Saturday and Sunday proved to be amazing days here. We met some new friends, and we were happy to see so many long-time friends, neighbors and dealers.
We appreciate each and every one of you. We are in awe of your strength and your kindness in the face of adversity. And we had a blast with a bunch of people that needed to get out and have some fun.
Unless unforeseen circumstances arise, we are back on our regularly scheduled business hours. We will be closed Monday and Tuesday as always, and we will be open again Wednesday 11/7 at 10am. Again on Wednesday if you need to charge a cell phone or use the bathroom here, you're welcome to.
Pax, our social media person, will resume posting some photos of treasures from the shop to our Facebook page starting Monday afternoon. We appreciate the messages of concern for the lack of photos this week. We understand and appreciate the many of you who said it'd be something to do and were looking forward to seeing the photos again. However, we just did not want to fill your News Feed while important storm information and damage updates were becoming available.
Our hearts go out to all those who remain without power. Personally several of us here at the Coop fall into that category! Let's all hang in there. Thank you for being the treasures you are!
