COVID Sucks, and other Musings
Due to the fact that we are living under a pandemic, our brick-and-mortar storefront is currently closed. Neither of us have any interest in getting sick and no matter your opinion on the subject, we are not taking any chances as we've proven we're terrible in Vegas so there's no reason to think those odds won't continue here. You may have noticed COVID seems to be dragging on and on, and while we like to think that people would have everyone's best interests at heart and would do everything in their power to end the pandemic, we know in reality that is not the case.
Many of our suppliers have closed, scaled back production or are not producing at all this season. The Collegiate season is dependent upon the good behaviour of others and school is only about halfway in session. This fact brings about a real-life consequence to the small retailer: we can't afford to speculate or predict sales like we previously could and then lay out a bunch of money on goods that may or may not sell, so our stock is very, very low. We're doing our best to adjust, but this year is unpredictable, and we need to err on the side of caution. It is what it is. Buy last season's stuff cheap; everyone wins.
We are still cautiously ordering some products and running our internet business, so don't hesitate to order what you see on the web! Everything available "instore" is available online. Occasionally, we will offer pre-order opportunities on items, so be sure to subscribe to our email to take advantage of those when they come around. We just can't afford to hold stock on things that may or may not sell.
All items purchased from our webstore will be shipped from our Huntington location within 48 hours, unless otherwise listed on the item page. Please don't ask to come pick it up: we realize it may seem ridiculous to have to pay for shipping when you're only 5 minutes away, but we have established these boundaries for our health and we ask you to respect them. We still have some of the lowest shipping rates on the planet, and with the increase coming to us in October, you'll still be getting the better end of the bargain. PLEASE, just pay the shipping charge of 7.95, flat rate.
We invite you to follow us on Facebook or Instagram for any updates to this situation. Thanks for your understanding, and wear your masks in public so we can end this!
All Past Season Marshall is Marked Down
All existing stock is marked down because frankly, if you've not yet bought it, we can't afford to stock it any more. Please take it off our hands.
