I called the Hallmark I shop at yesterday. Was expecting to leave a message, but was surprised when I got the store manager.

Had a nice chat. The store is closed until they allow them to open, but they are doing about 80 online orders a day, this past week.

Hoping they can open soon.

Looks like my store is getting ready to fully reopen rather then just curbside pickup based on this photo posted to the store's FaceBook page:

The Hallmark I shop at now has curbside pickup, but I'm hoping they have in store shopping soon. Maybe by mid-June.

So nice to see a store requiring masks etc. It certainly helps to alleviate concern on the part of customers.

I stopped in the local store today and she said most of her customers were doing mail order. They also will be shopping by appointment. I don't know how that will work for people who just want a few or shop spur of the moment.

I'm looking forward to go to the Hallmark I shop at and viewing the ornaments. Something I done for 35+ years. and before that I was the one setting up the ornament wall for 5+ years.

I received a card from my store yesterday with their premiere plans. Club members will be given special hours at which only they will be allowed to purchase ornaments.
I was surprised though that the store will still have a midnight opening. Normally the store open at 10, 10:30 or 11 pm on Friday with festivities leading up the midnight sale. This year however the store will not open until 11:55 pm. As nothing else was mentioned I'm assuming the plan for the midnight sale is, come in, get your ornament(s), buy it an get out.

Since I'm in Georgia, all my store can do is "encourage" masks. frown Guess I'll try curbside pickup.

Still waiting for the details on Premiere. The store we shop at is having Premiere, but no word on Friday night, or if we will need an appointment.

That's unfortunate considering most of us are not "young". I don't know the laws in your state but I would guess stores have the right to refuse customers. "No shirt, no shoes, no service" comes to mind.

Yesterday I made my Premiere Appointment with our local store. For Wishlist customers they will have an area of the store set aside to get your Wishlist items, make sure you got the right ones and inspect them. Since we have an early Wishlist number, our ornaments (at least as many as will fit) will be in the free Hallmark shopping bag.

If you want to browse the ornament wall, you have to join the line (if there is one) of customers waiting to enter the store.

I went with a late appointment on Saturday hoping there won't be a line to browse the wall.

I got an email from the store that they open at 10 on Friday and as long as we are koc national members, we can come in at that time.

And I checked my page on the koc website and there is a $2 bonus coupon to get on Friday, which would have to be printed at home. So Check that out.

I didn't get any mail but just NOW I received a phone call from a Hallmark store that I hardly ever shop at.

They invited me to their Friday night event from 5-7 PM.

Sounds like fun but it is a bit of a drive for me.

Just spoke with the store we shop at. We can come in Friday or Saturday by appointment. Right now we are scheduled for Friday at 5pm.

Looking forward to seeing all the ornaments up close !!!

I got a call from my store today letting me know my wishlist ornaments are pulled. They were encouraging me to come in sometime after Saturday or Sunday, and warning me there may be lines outside the store, especially right at opening on Saturday.

We'll see when I go over and get my ornaments. Usually, I head over a second time late in the day on Saturday, and there aren't that many people around. I may do that this year as my only trip.

They also said the ornaments are up, so we can come in and look at them now. They won't be covering them up like they normally would until Saturday. I was in a week or so ago and looked at what they had up then.
