As we approach the one-year anniversary of Idaho’s statewide shutdown, we wanted to take pause to thank our customers for continuing to support us during the pandemic, and to update you on our shopping protocols for the spring and beyond.
The Record Exchange is open from 10am to 7pm Monday-Saturday and 10am to 6pm Sundays. For now we are sticking with those times, but we’re hoping at some point this year to extend our hours again, including early-morning service at our espresso bar in The Record Exchange Gift Shop.
When The Record Exchange reopened in May 2020, we established several safety measures and shopping requirements that remain in place today:
- Limited capacity inside the store.
- Masks for staff and customers worn in the proper position (covering your mouth AND nostrils).
- Sanitized hands upon entering.
- Social distancing while shopping.
- Regular cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day and after hours.
We understand that some of our customers are now vaccinated and more of you will be soon, but these shopping requirements remain in place for everyone. While CDC recently announced that fully vaccinated people may gather indoors with other vaccinated people without wearing masks, please keep in mind that this new guideline applies to PRIVATE gatherings. CDC continues to recommend masks and social distancing in public for everyone, including fully vaccinated people.
Additionally, there remains a mask mandate in place for Boise, which gives the city authority to issue citations for trespassing to anyone who enters a business but refuses to put on a mask.
We see the light at the end of the tunnel, but until we get there, we will continue to prioritize safety inside the store. It’s the reason why we recently installed virus-killing technology for our ventilation system, and why we continue to offer curbside pickup, in-store pickup and delivery services. For in-store shopping, The Record Exchange has an array of contactless payment options with supported debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google/Android Pay.
Thank you again for supporting our independent business at a crucial juncture in our history. If you have any questions or comments regarding our shopping policies, please contact us here.
