Cumberland County entered the Yellow Phase of re-opening on Friday, May 22, which means that many of our local shops are happily welcoming back customers with proper precautions in place to keep everyone safe and healthy. The hours of operation and guidelines for each store are noted below. Customers should respect the rules and be patient as these new procedures are implemented. If you do not yet feel comfortable shopping in person, many stores continue to offer online shopping for your convenience.

If you live with and/or frequently spend time in close contact with all of the persons in your group, and everyone in your group is comfortable with being in the store at the same time, that is acceptable. While your group is in the shop, others wishing to enter will be asked to wait.

If you are more comfortable that masks be worn during your visit, then store personnel will wear a mask.

In other words, masks will only be waived if everyone in the building at any given time agrees that masks need not be worn. High touch areas such as doorknobs and the checkout counter will be cleaned and disinfected frequently. Store personnel will be practicing thorough handwashing frequently throughout the day. The iPad, chip reader, and stylus will be disinfected after each use.
