Two more business updates this morning. First, from longtime WSB sponsor West Seattle Runner‘s proprietors Tim and Lori McConnell:
We will be here in the store M-F from 10-4, taking orders via phone, text, email and Facebook messenger. We need to be here those hours to accept deliveries and set up shipping. We are going to be taking Sat and Sun off, and we may answer some emails, but we are trying to set up some routine where we don’t work every day.
We will be doing no-contact deliveries of all IN-STOCK ORDERS M-F between 4:30 and 6:00. We will also set up vendor direct shipping of any item we do not have in stock.
We do not currently have a web-store (under construction), but we hope to have one up very soon. As this operation is currently just Lori and I, we appreciate everyone’s support and patience as we try to figure out the best way to navigate this business challenge.
For those that have already purchased from us since “Stay Home, Stay Safe,” we really appreciate it, everything helps. For those looking to purchase now, know we will do our best to make shoe suggestions over the phone, and are extending our return policy to 45 days. And any order size is welcome, we are not limiting it to shoes or more, if you need 4 gels, we’ll get you 4 gels. We want to continue to service our community through this ordeal – we were here before all this, and we will be here after this, doing our best for our customers and friends.
And from West Seattle Landscape and Stone Supply proprietor Jeff Detweiler:
A lot of people are looking for garden soils right now, and we are one of the only places delivering it in West Seattle. I do everything by email and phone, so there’s no in-person contact with customers, and I am still charging the same delivery rates and soil prices as normal.
Best way to contact is by email as I’m kind of swamped, firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Super veggie soil, compost, two-way soil, medium bark, and NW Mulch (bark/compost mix) are all available for delivery Monday through Friday. Phone is still 206-763-7625, but again, email’s best right now. There’s no pickup of materials available, as we are delivery-only.
