A message to all our consignors and customers
As our communities continue to be affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be closely following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and other local and national health organizations. We will try to act upon the most up-to-the-minute information and try our best to proactively keep Front and Company as healthy and safe environment as possible for our customers and employees.
For our shoppers, we are diligently making sure we have the appropriate cleaning supplies on hand and have our staff increase the frequency of sanitization especially in heavy traffic areas. We will keep the doors open as often as possible to avoid cross contaminations and have good air circulation.
We are recommending all employees to take precautionary health measures, including frequent hand washing, wearing disposal gloves at work, social distancing, staying home when sick, and pausing all non-essential travel.
We offer customers hand sanitizer at entrances. If customers are sick, we will kindly ask them to leave and return to visit when they get well. We also require all consignors to wash and iron (if possible) their consignment items before they bring them for appraisal. All these practices will be done in a non-discriminatory manner and we eagerly ask for your understanding and cooperation.
Exceptional times call for exceptional measures and we ask for your patience and understanding. We will try our best to continue to serve you at our store as all our stores remain open currently in our regular hours and we also have our online shopping @ www.frontandcompany.com.
Meanwhile, we wish everyone to stay safe and healthy. Take care of yourself and each other, Happy handwashing!
