Coronavirus pandemic: Information for customers

British Columbia has begun a slow and careful return to regular economic operations. We have therefore decided to re-open our storefront, with specific new guidelines in place. If you are not comfortable shopping in person, you can still access all of our yarns, needles, hooks, and accessories on our website. Store Pick-Up of online orders is available 7 days a week - we will contact you when your order is ready for collection. We are also offering free North American shipping on all orders over $75, in case you prefer to stay at home. Join our weekly virtual knit groups on Mondays at 6pm and Thursdays at 11:30am, all via Zoom. Meeting details are available in our Ravelry group, the Wet Coast Woolies. Our amazing community means so much to us, and together we can get through this!

As our province moves forward in our careful Restart Plan, we have re-opened our storefront. As we do so, the health and wellness of our customers and staff continue to be our primary concern. With that in mind, we have introduced the following guidelines for daily operations at the shop:

Please wear a mask when shopping at Wet Coast Wools.

Please do not come to the shop if you are sick or experiencing any symptoms of illness, if you have recently arrived in BC, or if you are supposed to be in self-isolation for any reason.

We will allow only 2 customers in the shop at any time. As you first enter the shop, please check with staff before moving past the entrance area.

Please use the provided hand sanitizer before shopping. We also ask that you do not touch yarn and other items unless you are considering purchasing them.

Please maintain a distance of two meters from staff members and fellow shoppers. This includes while waiting in line at the cash, and while waiting to enter the shop.

We are not able to offer hands-on knitting or crochet help at this time. We can offer suggestions and advice, but staff will not touch your yarn or needles.

Please ask for assistance in accessing button and knitting needle drawers, and any accessories that hang on the wall behind the cash.

We have made some physical adjustments to the shop, including a plexiglass barrier at the checkout, and creating a path for one-way movement through the shop. Please respect these changes as you move through the shop.

We will not be holding any drop-in knitting groups, or in-person classes at this time. Please join us for Virtual Knit Groups on Mondays at 7pm and Thursdays at 11:30am - links to these Zoom meetings are available in our Ravelry group.

Our staff will be regularly cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch surfaces. Until further notice, our washrooms are for staff-use only.
