Covid News:

Update March 19th, 2022

Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville are now considered to be low transmission locations. According to CDC guidelines, while this is the case, masks will be optional in the store. Customers who wish to wear masks are welcome to do so.

Should the transmission rate increase or CDC guidelines change, we may revert to a mandatory mask requirement on short notice.

Thank you for your support.
