How We’re Keeping You Safe in These Uncertain Times

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve gone above and beyond to implement new health and safety measures in all of our stores and offices. This includes: requiring temperature checks for both employees and customers, providing branded masks to all of our employees, requiring all customers to wear masks while in-store, having disposable masks, hand sanitizer, and gloves available at all times, extra cleaning and sanitizing, including cleaning surfaces between each customer interaction and the Synexis® Biodefense System (which is the state-of-the-art microbial reduction system designed to clean air and surfaces by reducing the presence of microbes in indoor spaces).
