Our staff will be training, cleaning and preparing the store during
the coming days so we can be comfortable and confident in our new
shopping environment and follow all guidelines. Tuesday 5/19 we will be
opening the store to our customers! The initial hours while we all
adjust will be Tuesday-Saturday 12pm-4pm. We will still be offering
free local delivery for our customers who prefer that method during this
Our shopping environment will not
be the same during this first phase of opening and we truly appreciate
your patience and understanding while we relearn how to keep our
customers and our staff safe during their in store shopping experience.
Here’s an update on what shopping in store will look like.
We will not be accepting new repair. Our staff and support team are
working on a way to get this service back as soon as we possibly can.
Current repair will be completed and our customers will be notified as
soon as it’s done.
We are encouraged to use the curbside option and
delivery whenever possible during this initial phase, we can process
payments online or over the phone ahead of time and meet you curbside if
you’re familiar with your brand and the shoes you’re needing.
of our employees will be masked when interacting with customers. Hand
washing and sanitation of all common areas and equipment will be done
between every transaction.
All shoes and boxes touched during a transaction will be sanitized.
We will not have a fitting room or option to try on apparel in the
store until more information is released about the proper procedures for
Our employees are required to maintain the minimum 6ft
social distancing. This means we cannot measure you or help you try on
shoes yet. We’re working very hard to build a solution for this and
hoping to have it in place soon.
We ask that our customers do not pick up or touch any of the display shoes.
Hand sanitizing stations will be present throughout the store.
We will have to limit the number of customers and employees allowed in the store at one time.
We will have social distancing markers at the registers and ask that
you please be mindful and follow all the recommendations to keep
everyone involved safe.
Again, thank you for the support. This has
been extremely challenging for our store and although the current
guidelines will also prove to be a challenge we are grateful that we can
open our store and see our wonderful customers and dear friends.
During these next few transition days, we will still be checking social media messages, phone messages and email.
Saager’s Shoe Shop will be closed and not holding scheduled
in store hours as of 3/21/2020. This has
been a very difficult time and an equally hard decision. Although we support and believe in these social
distancing guidelines they have impacted our business tremendously and
unfortunately it is no longer feasible to stay open.
We are not accepting any more repair during this closure.
Our online store is still open and operating. We have added
a great selection of our current spring inventory that is now eligible for free
shipping or free local delivery. We
also offer gift certificates that can be purchased online. You can use the gift
certificates for online shopping or in store at a later time.
For our customers that have a completed repair or current
special order, we will be notifying you when they are here or complete. If you would like your shoes during this
closure we can talk about shipping, delivery or scheduled curb side pickup
Please keep our store, our employees, our community and all
of the other small local businesses in your thoughts. We are hopeful this
closure is brief and we will be reevaluating and updating as we go. We apologize for any inconvenience this is
causing to our customers.
