When will the Camano Center and Thrift Shop be open?

This is our most common question right now on the phone and via email from the community. It’s certainly on all of our minds too. We want nothing more than to get back to regular operations at both the Center and at the Thrift Shop. We miss everyone!

Unfortunately the answer to that question is unknown. We know that we need to follow the Governor’s guidelines in regards to businesses opening up in stages, but we have the added responsibility to protect the most vulnerable people who are over 60 years old and/or have compromised health. This describes a large portion of our members, volunteers, staff, and shoppers. We will need to be more vigilant than some of the other businesses in our community because of this fact.

When we do start to gradually open, it will look different. This we know for sure. Here are just a few things you can expect to see at the Center for a while:

  • Tables at our lunch program will seat no more than 3 people
  • Card games may not be possible for a while
  • Sewing, Art and Music groups will need to be limited to allow each person 6 feet between one another
  • Events will have limits to a certain amount of people (still to be determined)      
  • Programs will all be decided individually depending on how many participants can be in a room
  • No communal  coffee or candy
  • Cleaning frequently, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer…all part of our routine in the future

At the Thrift Shop we expect:

  • Limits to number of people that can come in the building
  • Masks being mandatory
  • Controlled entry and exit in order to limit shoppers
  • 6 foot rule being enforced
  • Limited hours for shopping
  • Limited hours for donating items
  • Cleaning frequently, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer…all part of our routine in the future

We want nothing more than to resume activity at both the Center and the Thrift Shop, but we must protect our community and stay healthy above all else. Each of us on staff and Board would like to thank all of you for supporting our mission with your donations, volunteering and well wishes during this tough time.  We are all doing amazing things, all together, to get through this!
