Old Skool’s – (509) 933-4991

Now we are about to begin Phase 2. I am grateful to be able to reopen, but am also apprehensive. My business, and so many other local businesses, have sacrificed for the sake of our community. We must be smart about how we reopen or those sacrifices will be for nothing. I am high risk and so are many of my loved ones. Most of us have friends or loved ones who are at high risk. Please, be respectful and responsible because we are all in this together. Phase 2 Plan:

• 5 customer maximum in the store at a time

• Customers must practice 6-foot social distancing. High traffic areas will be marked.

• I will be wearing a mask and all customers must wear masks.

• A disinfecting station with a hand sanitizer will be provided at the entrance

• High contact surfaces will be disinfected every half hour

• The restroom will not be open to the public

• Customers must limit the number of clothing items in the dressing room to 3. All unwanted items must be turned in so they can be held for 24 hours before they are restocked
