Another week has gone by and it is time for an online only sale again for our online only customers. We have had a very busy week with folks coming into the store and for the most part have had things run pretty smoothly, even with a half day internet and phone outage. We appreciate all who have come prepared with their masks on and hand sanitizer and we apologize for any of you who had to wait to get into the store, especially yesterday. We would like to do something for those of you who are only able to shop online with us, so how about 25% off through Monday at midnight Eastern Time, with the coupon code 202025!
Sometimes our website has glitches and if you try it again a bit later, things are fine so shop early and give yourself time to put through an order. Also, unfortunately, our website works best with Google Chrome and Firefox web browsers so you may have more issues with some of the other browsers and on iPhones. We apologize for this short-sidedness by our website provider.
*All sales are final. No price adjustments. If we are short any fabric or merchandise on your order, we will send what we have and refund you the difference. The coupon will not work on our last chance and already discounted merchandise.
If you try to reach out to us by email, just know that it is taking several days to get back to all the emails that are coming in and we do not check email on the weekends as frequently so don't be surprised if there is a communication delay.
This website-only special (good only while we are closed today and tomorrow) will help us pull your online orders before the shop opens, so in-store customers do not accidentally purchase your fabric before we are able to pull it and cut it (this does happen very easily).
In fact, any online order that comes into our system between 10am and 3pm each day we are in the store (right now Tuesday-Saturday) runs the risk of items accidentally being sold to in-store customers before we even see the order, much less get the chance to grab the bolt. We always worry about disappointing folks, so we decided to make you aware of the risks of ordering online during that time frame, as well provide a little incentive to place an order online over the next two days we are closed.
As for in-store shopping next week, be open for in-store shopping Tuesday to Saturday from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm, BUT....you MUST READ and abide by our policies about coming to the store. A few of you have asked about later hours and we have tried staying later a few days but find that nobody comes much after 3pm. If you'd like to come later, reach out directly and ask if we might stay later. We may consider it. Please, also, don't make snarky comments about our policies, as we have to be inside all day, wearing masks for many hours and we want ourselves and you all to remain healthy. Snarky comments do not help anyone in any way.
If you want to shop in the store please read the following:
1. There will be limited numbers of customers allowed in the shop so you may have to wait in your car. Bring a book or knitting or handwork to pass the time.
2. The door will still be locked! You will need to wear a mask before approaching the door and bring your own hand sanitizer into the shop to use once you are inside.
3. We will have a Red Sign, Green Sign signal in the window to let you know whether or not there is room for you. If the shop is full, we will have the red sign up in the window and you will HAVE to stay in your car. When you arrive, if the sign is red on the easel, there will be a sleeve of numbers hanging on it, so please grab one and put it under your windshield wiper so we can see who is next in line to come inside (we know we failed at this today but it worked great all week and we will be back at it on Tuesday). Please then stay in your car and wait for us to motion for you to come inside. DO NOT get out and stand around on the porch. When we let a person or multiple people out, we will allow more inside. You can bring your number inside and hand it to us to disinfect and you will be entered into a drawing for a free gift.
4. Please try to keep your visit to 1 hour or less. We would hate to have to rush you along but studies show the longer you are exposed to an infectious person, the higher the risks of infection, so we really want everyone to keep their visit as short as possible.
We appreciate all your support and patience as we work to shrink our inventory during a very difficult time for shopping.
If you missed our Closing our Doors announcement, read below.
I want to let you know that Intown Quilters will be closing its doors in 3-4 weeks. We are running different specials every few days so keep watch on our Instagram and Facebook pages to see the most recent specials. We also have several fixtures that will be for sale and many baskets, tins and tubs that are for sale for as little as a dollar. We truly appreciate you and look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks!
If you have an open Gift Certificate, don't forget that you can use it online, too with the number written on the gift certificate!
Due to this news, all sales are final. No price adjustments. Some items may be excluded from any specials or promotions offered during this time.
We continue to offer online shopping with curbside pick up for those of you who are more comfortable shopping from home. We have been told some of the glitches on our site are fixed, so please try again if you've had trouble.
We appreciate the support you've shown us during these uncertain times. Whether you are an essential worker during this crisis or doing your part to #stayhome, you are in our thoughts!
