Refund checks will be mailed out the week of March 7. If you are participating in our PhD Retreat, you may apply your bus payment to that event. Please call the shop if you would like to do this.

During this winter weather season, if weather conditions are dangerous or threatening, we will be deciding on Shop status, either closing early or closed for the individual day. We want everyone to be safe and not take any risk with travel. We will use Facebook and our website Home page to post any notices on weather related closures. Our answering machine will also be changed if possible (if we don’t answer, we are closed.) So please call first or check Facebook or the website.
