Like you, we are striving to respond to the changing events of the day the best way we know how and as rapidly as possible.
Beginning March 18th, our stores will be temporarily closed to the public, but all of our merchandise is available for purchase online and over the phone. Please take a few minutes to read about all of our new REMOTE SHOPPING OPTIONS which we hope will meet your shopping needs while our sales floors are closed. These measures will help us in the following ways:
- Our skeleton crew can focus on serving you online and over the phone.
- Less overhead will help us conserve our resources so that we can support our remaining staff as much as possible.
- We will be supporting Ithaca’s mission to “flatten the curve” by exercising social distancing and help our health system fortify their resources and systems.
Sellers and Consignors
We are not buying and consigning merchandise at this time. Consignors, thank you for trusting your merchandise with us. We will continue to work to sell your items for you as swiftly as we can. We are sending a direct email communication to all current consignors which will answer questions you may have and outline our options for proceeding together in this unchartered territory. To allay any immediate concerns, please know that you are welcome to come pick up your items at any time. Just call us and we can bring your items out to your car for you. All payments for sold items will be by check and will be sent to you by mail. If you have items you would like to consign with us, and think they would sell in the current climate, please call us or email us (with photo) and we will add you to our list of people to contact when we are taking in consignment items again.
Please check out all of our new Remote Shopping Options and give these new systems a whirl! This is a great way to meet some of your shopping needs in a safe and efficient way and of course, keep supporting local business and your community.
As fast as we usually work to get our new merchandise on the sales floor, we will now work that hard to get our merchandise posted online for you. We will also be available by phone as much as possible for phone orders and personal shopping. Please stay tuned as we update the hours we will be in the store and available for these services.
Thank you for supporting Mama Goose & Mimi’s Attic, and all of Ithaca’s locally-owned stores.
