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).
