BUSINESS UPDATES: Thunder Road Guitars, The Bass Shop, Seattle Yarn, Sleepers in Seattle, Delridge Home Depot

When we can, we’re grouping West Seattle business updates by type of business, but that’s not always possible, as in this case – here are five miscellaneous biznotes (more later today):

THUNDER ROAD GUITARS & THE BASS SHOP (6400 California SW; WSB sponsors): All online for now:

To protect the health of our customers and staff Thunder Road Guitars, Thunder Road Guitars PDX and The Bass Shop will temporarily close our storefronts to walk in traffic effective 3/19/20. We plan to re-open our storefronts as soon as it is safe to do so.

We will continue operating online and will be able to fulfill internet orders. We are also offering free domestic shipping and free local delivery to customers in Seattle and Portland. If you have instruments to sell, cosign or bring in for repair please call or email us.

Stay safe. We will get through this.

SEATTLE YARN: Now online and by phone 206-935-2010:

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are making further changes to keep everyone in our community safe and healthy. Effective Tuesday, March 17th, we are closing to the public. As per Governor Inslee’s directives for social distancing, this will be in effect for at least two weeks.

If you have signed up for a class, we will be reaching out to you via email.

To help folks have continuing access to yarny goodness and other supplies, we have several options!

We are able to help you over the phone with orders. We are happy to help you choose what you need – we can talk options, text or email pictures, whatever will make it easier! We will be available to take phone orders Tuesday-Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm.

We have been adding to our webshop, and are continuing to put more of our products online every day. Check back regularly to see what we have posted!

How can you get your orders? Whether you order over the phone or online, you can have your purchases shipped. You can also choose to pick up from us, either curbside or at the door. If you order online and are picking up, please call ahead.

We will also be implementing a delivery option! Within West Seattle, we will make deliveries on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and during the day on Sundays. Delivery charge is $3, and delivery orders must be made over the phone.

We recognize that these are difficult and scary times. Your continuing support of our small business means the world to us.

SLEEPERS IN SEATTLE: This Junction shop also shares a message for customers:

We understand that this is an uncertain time. We want to reassure you that we are taking this very seriously and are implementing precautions to protect the safety of our customers and staff by following COVID-19 guidelines provided by the CDC, PHAC and WHO.

These guidelines are evolving rapidly. We are committed to adapting our business to align with the latest recommendations from these agencies. In order to align with social distancing guidelines, we are temporarily changing our store hours to by appointment only. We plan to return to our full services in about 2 weeks, but are closely monitoring the situation and will make adjustments to our timeline as needed.

What does this mean for our customers?

● In-person shopping at our store will only be available for customers with personal shopping appointments.

● You can always shop our stores online 24/7. We are always available via phone or email for any questions.
They’re at 888-922-SOFA.

THE HOME DEPOT: Lena at the 7345 Delridge Way SW store sent this update:

Our Hours of Business effective today: Monday – Saturday 6 AM – 6 PM and Sunday 8 AM – 6 PM.

Our corporate is working with the CDC’s and State’s requirements of changing our hours for now to comply with the COVID-19 mandate. I am sorry for the inconvenience, however, to protect our employees that are still coming in to help in any way possible and to protect our community, we will comply.

Our community can shop online, select a store to shop in and pick up in store. Our lockers are located right inside the main entrance and if product is too big will be located at our Customer Service Desk also right inside main entrance.

Business (and other!) updates are welcome at or text/voice 206-293-6302. Photos too!

    I have always appreciated the WSB and what a unique asset you are to our community.   You have amazed me on so many occasions.  Our family would hear sirens and someone always chimes in “Check the Blog!”  and you already have details on what is happening.  It seems like you never sleep. Now more than ever as we are isolated and practicing social distancing we turn to you for what is going on in our community.   Thank you for all that you do from our family down the hill on Fauntleroy to you up the hill.

      Thank you for the kind words. Dating back to my overnight DJ shifts at age 19 in Las Vegas as a friendly voice in the night, we’ve tried to be reliable, trustworthy, tireless … though the information landscape has evolved in the 13 years we’ve been reporting West Seattle news, there seems to still be a place for a central, visible to all (no algorithms, no membership requirement, etc.) infohub, so here we are. – TR

        Yes to all of the above! We’re so lucky to have you, especially now.
        Is there anything we can do to help YOU? You’ve been working so tirelessly on behalf of our community, I keep wondering what we can all do to show our support? Do you have a list of things that would help make things easier? I’m sure a lot of us would love to pitch in any way we can!

        • WSB March 19, 2020 (11:26 am)

          In the short run, the most helpful thing is letting us know what YOU are seeing – the restaurant/beverage list seems to be helpful for many but we absolutely can’t check with all 110+ venues daily ourselves, so if you see someplace closed, open, new hours, etc., let us know. And stories of what your neighborhood is up to (we just loved finding out about the 32nd SW folks the other day, thanks to a nearby reader who wondered about the “OK” signs in windows) …etc. We have always been reliant on tips, but now more than ever. We are still driving around looking at things but trying not to do too much in-person work as unfortunately we both are in at-risk categories. – TR

            Thank you for being our local news team.  Our community is better with you all!

      I totally agree, BB! WSB is the only social media I choose to use. I value and appreciate it greatly!

Sorry, comment time is over.
