Small Business Saturday at Culture Shock

Our Annual SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY event is going to look different this year (please read!)We have been racking our brains about this weekend and in the end we want those of you who want to shop locally at your favorite local businesses to have the opportunity to do so in the absolute safest and healthiest way, so we will be taking precautions very carefully.We also CANNOT stress how much we want to keep our staff safe and our families and the families of our customers safe.According to the latest mitigation, we are allowed to be open at 25% capacity, so things are going to just be different––please read carefully, and thank you SO SO SO MUCH for your support. It means the world to us. Let's make this fun.We are going to go over our protocols first (most importantly) and then we will go over our FEATURE for the day.  Please read in order and fully (we love you... thank you for doing this)-OUR PANDEMIC PROTOCOL: (This looks long, It's actually really simple, but we are laying it out in a lot of detail so there are no questions)- Please wear your mask from the time you leave your car until you get back into your car.- Your mask will need to be worn covering your MOUTH and NOSE at all times inside & outside when in line & browsing. Thank you for your cooperation.- If you have a medical condition that makes it so you cannot wear a mask, please call us and we will discuss alternative options.-​ We are asking that you distance yourself 6-feet apart indoor AND outdoor the entire time you are in line and while shopping.Please do not enter the store until we allow you inside, we will be regulating the amount of people inside all day so that way we are following the IL mitigation health rules.We will also be opening the door for you as much as possible and sanitizing our baskets constantly.- We will be allowing people in 10 at a time to allow for social distancing. We actually have experience with this and we can tell you that the line moves pretty efficiently and quickly so don't you fret, you won't be outside for long. Thanks for your patience during busier times. Dress for the weather.- We will have you sanitize your hands completely before browsing. If you cannot use sanitizer, we have a sink w/soap.- We have air-purifiers running on both sides of the store to cover the square footage, that clean the air 98% every 75 minutes as a precaution for extra help.- FOR REAL, This is serious–– If you are sick even with a cold, at all feverish, have body aches, have any even slight feeling of a covid-symptoms, if your allergies are bothering you–causing you to sneeze/have a runny nose/eyes, or if you are feeling any stomach ick, please stay home and send someone you haven't exposed to help shop for you. -Please do this for us so we, and other local businesses can continue to stay open, keep YOU, and our staff safe and healthy, and bring you all of the music and purposeful gifts you love.We are willing to go the lengths of the universe to help you shop for products, so just know, even if you have to sit this one out, we will make sure you get what you need. We are always a message away on social media.It’s very important to us to be able to remain open to serve you.  Thank you for understanding.- SBS FEATURE TIME:BOTH FRIDAY - SATURDAY will be extended hours from 8am-7pm!
