The Black Dog Newsletter: “Things to Know About Re-Opening! Edition!”


Maybe it’s too soon to open things back up, maybe it’s not. I guess time (or an alien bursting out of your chest) will tell. We will be opening on a regular basis starting Friday (29th) from noon till 6pm at both shops. I imagine that we’ll be expanding those hours as we see fit. We’re going to keep the pre-ordering and pick-up service available but only for Wednesdays and Saturdays and see how that goes (doing it everyday may cause my head to explode). Same format as before – online or email – .

I’m sure that you know the drill for popping into the shops – only 5 patrons at a time, give each other space and time, be patient, please no looky-llos killing time before your foot massage appointment, etc. Be nice.

Stuff that we’re doing to make things safe include: installing a plexiglass barrier between us and them, wearing of masks as we see fit, wiping down incoming returns and we’re also having the entire shops disinfected (lasts up to 3 months!) from this company here. Sounds like fun!

We’re also going to be continuing with our fabulous deals everyday! Rent 5 catalogue titles for $15 – keep for a week or even longer if you ask nicely, and rent 2 New Releases and get a 3rd for FREE! And even more news – all late charges incurred up to Friday the 29th will be forgiven! This includes any pre-apocalypse fees. (You can always tip us if you feel guilty!)

New Releases

(Arriving sometime this week or early next week)

That’s it for this week folks. There was a ton of stuff I wanted to go over – oh ya! Tuesday at Commercial and Wednesday at Cambie are our last curb-side dates before we open on Friday. Get your orders in asap – but I forget the other stuff. Stay tuned and stay healthy…
