Friends of GPR,
The past few weeks have been crazy for everyone, and we have to give a huge thank you to our wonderful customers who have stepped up in supporting us as a family business, and to the staff at GPR who have moved mountains so that our business can adapt and continue serving everyone's needs. We are humbled. Gov. DeWine and Dr. Acton have repeatedly encouraged Ohioans to get out and garden. They have stated that it is one of the healthiest things we can do in this unusual time. At GPR we are working with our local health department to ensure that our staff and customers are safe while shopping. Below is a list of what we are doing in accordance with DeWines orders.
-We are cleaning all regularly used surfaces vigorously.
-We are limiting the number of people allowed in the store at once. As well as the number of people allowed in a greenhouse at one time.
-The register is outside for safe open-air checkout and we installed a large sneeze guard between our employees and customers.
-We have spots marked on the ground at checkout to ensure social distancing while standing in line.
-We are providing hand sanitizer at checkout for staff and customers.
-Our staff are wearing face masks when working with the public.
-We have asked all staff to stay home if they feel unsafe working with the public or feel ill.
-We ask customers to shop in person only if they feel well. Those who are experiencing flu like symptoms are being asked to leave.
-We are accepting curbside pickup orders for contactless shopping. You do not even need to get out of our car.
-All classes have been postponed until further notice.
Spring for any independent greenhouses and garden centers is an immensely important time, and we ask that you continue supporting us and your other independent businesses. GARDENING IS NOT CANCELLED, and it is one of the healthiest things you can do while at home. Now is the time to plant your victory garden.
Please stay safe, healthy and happy. Spring is marching our way, and with it comes the abundance of life, joy and freedom that we all need more than ever. We are beyond grateful to know you as friends and patrons, and can't wait to help you grow things that will feed your body and soul.
The Team at GPR
