Soft Re-Opening - 5/30 & 5/31 (plus some new safety guidelines)

Hello hello! We have some exciting news!

The shop will be doing a soft re-open from 11am-4pm on Saturday, May 30 and Sunday May 31. How this weekend goes will determine how/when we open in the future.

We're taking your safety and that of our staff very seriously, so things will not be business as usual. If you decide to visit us this weekend, please be aware that:

- We will be sanitizing all high traffic areas several times per hour and after each customer leaves the shop.

- Our staff will be wearing masks and we ask that you do the same. 

- Hand sanitizer will be available at the front door, please use it upon entering the shop. Our staff will be washing and/or sanitizing their hands several times per hour. 

- Only 6 people will be allowed in the shop at a time. We may choose to lower the number of people allowed in the shop if 6 people proves to be unsustainable. Please wait outside, 6 feet apart from each other, until we let you know it's okay to come inside. 

- We will not be accepting cash at this time. Please use cards or contactless payment (such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.). We will not require signatures for purchases $25 and under and are happy to mark your signature as an X if you wish to avoid touching the POS screen. 

- The floor will be marked in 6 foot increments, please use these to adhere to social distancing guidelines. If someone is in an area where you would like to look, please wait until they are finished. 

- We are no longer allowing wearable items to be tried on. This includes shirts, sunglasses and jewelry. 

- Please shop with intent and refrain from picking items up unless you plan to purchase them. If you have questions about an item, please let us know and we'll find out for you. 

In addition to testing the waters with being open this weekend, we will also be trying out two new ways of shopping:

1. From 5/30-6/4, you can pick up your online orders at the shop! Just choose the Pick Up option at checkout when shopping at our online store, and we'll email you to schedule a pick up time. 

2. From 6/1-6/4, we will be testing out private shopping appointments in slots of 15, 30 and 45 minutes. If you'd like to have the store to yourself, email us ZimZimPDX@gmail.com the day before you'd like to shop and we'll get you set up! 

We know this is a lot to take in and is so much different from how things were just months ago. We really appreciate you being patient with us, and with the many other businesses that are learning this new way of doing things. Our primary goal is to keep our community safe, and if it means that things are awkward or uncomfortable for a time then so be it.
