In-Store Shopping TUE – SUN

  • A staff member will be responsible for limiting shoppers in the store. Due to occupancy limites, during peak shopping times, customers may be asked to wait outside until someone completes their transaction and exits the building. This is unusual, but is a possibility, especially on the weekends.
  • Masks are REQUIRED for all CJ staff, as well as for anyone to shop or donate.
  • Shoppers must maintain 6ft between CJ staff as well as other shoppers.
  • Plexiglass shields put in place at the register.
  • Social Distancing lines are in place on the sidewalk and leading to the register.
  • Store access on Thursdays from 9a to 10a will be limited to only vulnerable populations for COVID-19 infection. Shoppers who do not fall into one of those groups are asked to wait until after 10am to come to the store to shop or donate. Please refer to the Pa Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines.

We will continue to list certain inventory items for sale on eBay. Some items will be available for shipping and some for pickup only.
