We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. We are very much looking forward to again welcoming customers into our store as we enter Phase 3 of the governor's Restore Illinois plan at the end of this month--Tuesday, June 2nd will be the first day we will be open for retail business. As part of this transition, we wanted to let everyone know what they can expect when they visit Glenn Poor's in the coming months. We are taking this virus seriously, and have been closely following state and local updates, as well as their guidelines for businesses reopening amidst the pandemic. We have joined many other local businesses in Champaign County and made the Champaign County Safe pledge (champaigncountysafe.org), which is a commitment to practice social distancing and effective hygiene in the store.
Our team will regularly wash our hands and disinfect high-contact surfaces, and we will be wearing masks while interacting with customers. We ask that customers wear masks if they are medically able, and to practice safe social distancing (6ft apart) while visiting. If you are interested in coming in to audition gear, we also recommend that you call in advance so we can best prepare what you need.
While the dangers from this pandemic have far from abated, we are happy and relieved to be able to take this next step in the transition to normalcy. The stay-at-home order has made it clear to us just how important it is to be able to enjoy beautiful music and compelling cinema from home, and has reaffirmed the significance and relevance of the work we do here. We will do our best to provide the excellent service that you expect from our team, and we hope that you will continue to support us in the coming months and years.
