Holiday shopping at Rooster Brother in 2020

 

These are certainly challenging times for us here at Rooster Brother.  We thought it would be a good idea to let you know how things are going and what to expect for the Holiday season.

We are open and are busier than usual, but there are some extra challenges because of the pandemic.

Everything takes longer because we need to keep everyone safe.

We are short staffed. Please be patient as there may be times when certain services like slicing and gift wrapping are not available.

Our supplies are unpredictable and, although we are ordering plenty of products, we cannot be certain when they will arrive.  We may not be able to re-order items that are sold out in time for Christmas giving.  If you see something that you want, please do not rely on it being there later.

As you know, there are limits to how many people can be in the store at one time.  Those limits are substantially less than the number that would normally be shopping at this time of year, which means that we will have to manage the number of shoppers during the busy times.

All of this means that you will be much happier if you shop early in the season, early or late in the day or take advantage of our next-day curbside service. If you know exactly what you’d like, you can call the store at 207-667-8675 during store hours, Tuesday-Saturday 9:30-5:00, and place an order for pick up outside THE NEXT DAY.

Or you can send an email to [email protected]. If you do that, be sure to include your phone number so that we can call you for your credit card number and more information if we have a question about your order.

Please keep the following in mind:

Masks ARE required.

Please limit your group to no more than two people.

The rest room is not available.

Payments by credit or debit cards or gift cards only in order to keep our staff as safe as possible.

Store hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30-5:30.  We are CLOSED on Mondays.  We plan to be open on the Sundays between Thanksgiving and Christmas from 11 am to 3 pm.
