2019 Holiday Hours

Please note our hours during the holidays:

Dec 24 – 11am to 4pm.

Dec 25 – closed

Dec 31 – CLOSED for inventory**

Jan 1 – Noon – TBD (closing time will be announced shortly)

Have a great holiday season!

** Since we opened in 2011, after close of business on every December 31st, we would perform an inventory count of our entire store. This would take the entire staff several hours working late into the night on New Year’s Eve. This year we will close during the day to do this task, so Jon, Nick, Matt, and I can enjoy festivities to welcome in the New Year. Thanks so much for your support and here’s to a wonderful 2020!
