After a long and painful deliberation, we have decided that 2020 will be our last year running A Great Yarn. Although we — like you -– have experienced many challenges trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy during the pandemic, we are not stepping aside because of COVID-19. Indeed, A Great Yarn has weathered the storm quite well, thanks in large part to the tremendous support so many of you have provided to the shop since everything began to change in March. Our reason for ending our involvement with the shop is simply that both of us deeply miss interacting with our two sons, our daughter-in-law, and our new grandson. We have not been able to see any of them since February, during which time our grandson went from crawling (which we missed) to walking (which we also missed), and we are extremely anxious to make up for lost time once the country turns the corner on COVID-19, hopefully early next year.
We have loved every minute of the nearly six years we have spent building A Great Yarn, and the thousands of wonderful knitters, crocheters and readers that we have met since we opened the shop.
We plan to initiate a series of “progressive” sales during the final four months of the year. During September, every single item in the shop -– yarn, buttons, needles, patterns, books, kits, Crazies, you name it -– will be 15% off. If we have any inventory left when we get to October, we plan to increase the discount to 30%, and to 50% in November. And if we still have any yarn or books in the shop come December, we plan to increase the discount to 75%.
If you cannot make it to Chatham, or you are uncomfortable with the idea of in-store shopping, we will be happy to ship your discounted purchases to you, and we will provide free shipping for purchases of $200 or more. You can also schedule a private shopping experience either before the shop opens for the day or after we close. Just give us a call at 508-348-5605 to schedule an appointment.
If you have any questions please call the shop at 508-348-5605, or send us an email at email@example.com.
Changes Due to the Coronavirus !
A Great Yarn is open for in-store shopping. However, all customers must wear a face mask, and must observe social distancing, i.e., at least six feet between customers. In addition, we must limit to six the number of customers in the shop at any one time. Curbside pick-up and mail order shipping is available for customers who wish to phone-in orders. We encourage customers who are unable to wear a mask because of medical issues, or are uncomfortable with having other shoppers in the store, to take advantage of our “appointment only” approach to shopping. The hours available for such shopping are 9 to 10 am, and 5 to 6 pm, Tuesday through Friday. We request that customers call us at 508-348-5605 if they would like to schedule appointment only shopping.
