WINTER WEATHER POLICY

As we approach the winter weather season, we are thinking about methods of deciding and communicating any closures. If the weather is threatening (warnings, advisories, etc.) it is always best to call the Shop (815-397-5160) first to make sure we are open. And bad weather could also result in an early closure of the Shop.
We want everyone to be safe and not take any risk with travel. We will change our answering machine message to reflect any closures. We will also use Facebook and our website to post any notices on weather related closures. So please call first.
