It's been quite awhile since we've done a Shop Scenes post here in the Journal, our last shop scenes was back in February PC (pre covid). Pre everything changing at a drop of a pin, every which way and what way.
The biggest change to our retail store is we moved the savadyblog retail shop which you can read more about in this blog post. and our old retail location is now just our office/studio/atelier...though we will be doing appointment only shopping in our showroom (which we will be setting up after the holidays).
SAFE, SANITIZED, SOCIAL DISTANCE SHOPPING
Urbanite is over 20,000 square feet and there is plenty of space to safely social distance shop and there are sanitizing stations all throughout the store! Also, Urbanite is limiting customer capacity at 60% occupancy (state recommended is 75%) and masks are required at all times.
Shop Hours are 10-5 Daily (except temporarily closed on Wednesdays)
We finished setting up everything in our new retail location a couple of weeks ago and have gotten into a new rhythm of weekly restocking and remerchandising the shop.
Christine and Hannah worked on decorating the shop for Christmas and installed a big beautiful twig wreath with pretty greenery in the ceiling (you can see it in the overall shot of the shop)
Quick Reminder: Urbanite houses over 30 independently owned and operated mini shops and all sales go through Urbanite's Point of Sale System which means any purchases made at our retail shop inside Urbanite is subject to Urbanite's shop policies.
