ALTERNATE REALITY AND YOU
Changes Due to the Virus and Our New "Virus Free"
The spread of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is on all our minds and constantly
in the news. Sports events are cancelled, Wrestling Matches are happening in
empty arenas and Bars and Restaurants are closed. As each day goes by the
Covid-19 virus affects more individuals and businesses alike.
Alternate Reality is
responding to this Health Threat with some changes of our own to help protect
our customers, and check the virus spread. These changes are being adapted
immediately by us and include….
We are shortening our store hours to help minimize the potential spread of
Covid-19 in our community. As of this writing (031620) our NEW STORE
Tuesday: 2:00PM to 7:00PM
Wednesday: 7:00AM to 7:00PM
Thursday: Noon to 7:00PM
Friday: Noon to 7:00PM
Saturday: 11:00AM to 6:00PM
Sunday: Noon to 5:00PM
Actual open/close time changes are noted in RED
above. These changed hours may again be subject to change again based on events
as they unfold over the next few weeks.
We actually started this days ago. Each day the stores counter, showcase tops
and door handles are being cleaned when we open in an effort to help slow the
spread of the virus. Alternate Reality is a 3200 square foot superstore and it’s
impossible to clean all surfaces, but we are trying to keep the most touched
surfaces clean everyday. Please only handle or touch something if you truly are
interested in purchasing it.
Additionally, there will be a bottle of hand sanitizer at the counter for our
customers use; we encourage you to take advantage of it.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
The following precautions are good to keep in mind wherever you may go…
-Please do not come into the store or just go out your front door if you are sick, not just for your own sake
but for the safety and protection of everyone.
-Social Distancing, while shopping we encourage you to maintain three to six
feet between yourself and others. That may be difficult in some sections of the
store so please be patient if someone is already in an area you want to explore.
It really is a big store and if the Marvel room is occupied consider checking
out the DC’s, supplies, the Kids Corner or another unoccupied area.
If you can't make it in, please call or message us and we will work to hold
what you would like until you can pick it up. Paying over the phone with a
credit card is also always an option; we can hold something indefinitely if you
do this (24 hours without a payment-unless you are an ARSS Subscriber). We want
to do our part to help minimize any potential spread of Coved-19 in the 19th
Ward and surrounding suburbs.
This is a constantly evolving situation, and we should all continue to monitor
it by listening to our local governments, the CDC, the WHO and of course the
News. Please stay safe. Wash, wash and wash your hands often with soap and hot
water and try to keep your fingers away from your face.
We can all beat this
