Store opening: some important info

So we're about 12 hours away now from our store opening (we try not to use the word "grand"). Here's some random stuff you should know if you're planning a special trip:

1) We will be accepting credit cards, unlike at NYAF. We just weren't set up for it there, but we are at the store.

2) We do not yet have a changing area. This is one of the things that just didn't get done in time for opening. We hope to have one soon.

3) We will open at 12:30PM and not before. And rest assured, we're opening rain or shine.

4) No food or drink is allowed in the store.

5) No smoking is allowed in the store.

6) If you're taking public transportation, the closest subway train is the L. Get off at the 1st Avenue stop, walk south to 11th St., then east to Avenue B. We are between 10th and 11th streets. You can also take the M9 bus, which stops across the street from us.

7) If you're driving and you're concerned about parking, Saturday is usually pretty easy around our area. There aren't many lots or garages but there should be plenty of spots on the streets around our store. Your best bets are usually between 5th and 10th St. between Avenues B and C, but depending on when you come, on Saturdays you'll often find spots on Avenue B itself.

8) You can't please everyone, and we don't attempt to. But please keep in mind that our store is and always will be a work in progress. There are things we want to fix, things we want to add, things we wished we could have done but didn't get to yet. We'll keep working hard from tomorrow on. This isn't the end of building our store, it's the beginning.

And depending on your plans, this one may be most important:

9. This week only, we are closed Monday, October 5th.

Our normal off day will be Sunday each week. But it wouldn't make much sense to open on Saturday and then close on Sunday, so for one week only we're open all weekend and closing Monday. We'll have signs announcing this as well.

10. Our Victorian maiden shipment will arrive most likely tomorrow, if you're waiting for that. But we aren't sure what time - probably somewhat later in the day.

Thanks, and we hope to see you at the store soon!
