2020 was a year of lessons in so many ways. In March of last year, we closed our doors to foot traffic and 100 percent of our business moved online. We shifted and changed the way we do business here at the Apothecary in so many ways last year. Every shift and change presented its own challenges, lessons and rewards. It’s thanks to all of you that we are still here on the corner today. Thank you for supporting us through all the twists and turns of last year and for continuing to do so as we slowly and safely come back together in 2021.
The new Apothecary team is excited about what this year will bring and looking forward to welcoming you into our space. Madison Joy and Lucy Wenman-Suarez are two new faces you will see around the shop. These two sweet souls are ready to help you find the right self care, perfect tea blend or just the right book to make your day. Janeve West has also been helping us by telling the Apothecary story that will be shared on our new website which is set to launch first thing in May. We have also taken a cue from another local business owner and will be bringing Live Online Sales to you very soon.
While we don’t know what waits around the corner for us here in 2021, we are delighted to be back open for folks to shop safely in person and we continue to have our weekly zoom gatherings as a way to keep the Apothecary Community connected. Our fingers are crossed that sometime this year we will be able to plan in person events too.
The Apothecary is now open to foot traffic five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Masks are required and at this time we are still maintaining a limit of five guests in the store and we have shopping zones within our space to ensure social distancing. We keep a close eye on the science and will stick with these as our guidelines until new information comes out. You can also shop online at kaeapothecary.com any time and know that we still offer curbside pick up, local delivery and shipping nationwide.
