Remodel Update

As you may or may not know we are remodeling, not by our choice, but hell yeah we get an all new store front! Want to hear the whole story click here. Otherwise update on progress below:

5/12:  Our contractor just called and windows will be installed on May 25th which marks the beginning of the remodel. We anticipate is will take some time so we will have our GRAND REOPENING on June 5th.  Of course, we'll keep everyone posted!

We are officially back to normal hours!

Mon- Fri: 12-8pm
Sat: 10-4pm
Sun: 12-6pm

5/4:  Front windows and door are ordered and shipping!  We feel confident in the progress of our remodel that we will be going back to normal hours next week, until then our hours are:

We are officially open for temporary hours!  We will have a fabulous new mural on our store front, created by local artist Stephanie Hagens.  Our windows will be installed within a couple of weeks, and will greatly improve our amazing little store front!  Until then please help keep us afloat during the following hours:

4/18: A group of helpers came out today to hang all the clean garments and clean any remaining debris. The team worked quickly and we were done by 7pm.  We also met with an artist that will be painting a mural on the front facade until we get windows. The store is totally ready to reopen with limited hours.  We will be open today, Tuesday April 19th from 2-6pm.  We need to recoup lost sales so please come on out to shop today and during our limited hours in the coming weeks until we have our permanent windows in place.

Thank you to everyone that has offered support throughout the past week and in the coming weeks.  It's been a very crazy week to say the least and wouldn't have made today's opening if it hadn't been for such amazing friends, family, volunteers, employees, customers, contractors, and cleaners.

Much love from the Upshift family!

Finishing touches

Previous updates:

4/16: Our contractor placed the temporary front facade and new door. The cleaner finished with the building, but now we need to focus on cleaning the garments.  We found hundreds of pieces with debris and glass on them.  We loaded them up and they are being washed now, 12 loads total.  We have committed to using all natural products and are hang drying them all to cut down on environmental impact.  

4/15: We met with contractors and cleaners to begin work today. The boutique looks so much better already. We did an initial inventory of lost items. There are so many garment covered in debris, dust, and glass.  In fact, when I simply reached down to pick up a pair of pants I was cut by a shard of glass (minor, but still worth noting since we need to make all garments safe for swapping)  In addition to all lost garment and accessories,we need 3 mannequins and a mural artist to do a temporary facade on the construction wall until our windows are replaced in 2-3 weeks!

4/14: Met with contractors and cleaning begins tomorrow as well as initial reconstruction. We still have to do inventory and itemize all items lost or damaged. Work begins at noon. Temporary storefront for reopen estimated for Sunday 4/17. They're quoting a full recovery in 2-4 weeks.
