Hello, Ithaca Families!
We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the role we play as a community gathering and shopping place, and address some concerns you may be having regarding such spaces. The health and well-being of our customers is always a priority, but especially so now. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 updates from Tompkins County Health Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the NYS Health Department. As recommended, we have tentative contingency plans in place for various scenarios and are revisiting them and meeting about them daily.
New Procedures We are upping our cleaning game to help keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe. In addition to our nightly cleaning routine, we are now wiping down high-use surfaces and doorknobs a couple of times throughout the day. We always strive to use natural/minimal chemicals for cleaning but, for now, we will be using EPA recommended cleaning solutions also.
Our goal, as always, is to spread the love not the germs!
Consignors Thank you for consigning with us and trusting us with your items. We will stay in close contact with you about your consigned items should anything in our procedures need to change. As always, if we offer storewide sales and discounts, that never affects your consignment payouts. We would be similarly conscientious about any unexpected variables that might affect your consignment timeline.
The Mama Team We are committed to taking care of our team. We are in continual communication to offer guidance and information so they can keep themselves and their families safe. We’re encouraging sick team members to stay home to keep the rest of the staff and our customers safe and healthy. We are also aware that some people may not feel comfortable shaking hands or having other physical contact at this time, and will gladly offer and accept bows, waves, grins, and jazz hands in lieu of a handshake.
