On March 17, 2020, Alameda County issued a shelter in place ordinance which required us to close our brick and mortar to the public. I continue to follow all local, state, and federal guidelines in regard to covid-19 and reopening my business. Please reach out directly to me if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org - Julie Harleman, owner
SEPTEMBER 12 UPDATE:
Hours are expanded! Wednesday through Saturday 12pm-6pm, and by appointment on Sundays. Appointments are available Wednesday through Friday as well. Saturdays are reserved for walk-in customers.
I have rearranged the shop to keep myself a safe distance from customers, while still being able to provide my expertise in denim fitting. I continue to exercise great caution and implement safety protocols to limit the chance of exposure to the virus for myself and my customers. It is safe and clean in here and the dressing rooms are now open! There are some types of garments you still can’t try on (anything that you have to pull over your head), but slowly but surely I’m finding ways to get back to “normal.”
I’m still not bringing in a lot of new inventory, but there is a lot of new stuff from Naked and Famous and Pendleton, as well as a TON of things on sale, and I am set up to do special orders through most of the brands I carry. So if what you’re looking for is not in stock now, chances are I can order it! I will also be bringing in Pendleton home goods such as towels and blankets.
Lastly, I am burned out on social media and no longer using it for the shop, but that is not an indication that I am closed or closing. Maple Street is still here open for business. Having a brick and mortar is where my heart lies and I am putting my energy into that instead of trying to scramble to get online, as counterintuitive as that may seem during the pandemic. For updates about the shop, please continue to check this site, or stop by the shop in person with your mask on and say hi!
AUGUST 13 UPDATE:
Technical issues have caused some hiccups with my appointment scheduling software and it was offline for several days. The issue has been remedied and appointments should be easy to book now. Head over here to book your appointment
AUGUST 4 UPDATE:
Continuing to move cautiously through opening, and my in-person hours will again be limited to Weds-Sat 12-4 with expanded hours for private appointments also available from 4 and 6 pm Tuesday through Saturday. If you would like to make an appointment and cannot fit into that availability, please email me and we can work out another time. All appointments will have access to deeply discounted clearance items that are not normally available on the sales floor.
JULY 15, 2020 UPDATE:
Another confusing couple of weeks for businesses here in the Bay Area as city, county and state health departments have been providing conflicting information about what is and is not allowed to be open. As of today, I am trying to keep more expanded hours in the brick and mortar and have begun allowing some limited walk-up shopping. Dressing rooms are to remain closed to the public, but are available for private appointments. An appointment is not necessary to shop, but for denim fitting, strongly recommended.
