Weston Nurseries Updated Covid Practices
Your safety and the safety of our staff is of the utmost importance to us. We are extending our hours to spread out our traffic as much as possible. We realize shopping for plants is a popular family event so we encourage you to shop during the weekdays and take advantage of the extended hours in our stores so that you can help us and we can help you to avoid larger crowds than necessary. You can also place your order by phone (508-435-3414) or use our ShopWeston section of our website for curbside pick-up.
Here are the other measures we have put in place to keep everyone healthy, happy and safe:
- We have placed signs all around reminding people of social distancing as well as adding bright green stickers on our floors that will also help people to stay 6 feet apart.
- Our entrances and exits are all clearly marked as are the designated traffic flow corridors. There is plexiglass around all of our cashiers stations to keep our guests and staff safe.
- We have spread out our displays over a larger area this year so that you will have more outdoor space in which to walk around and shop.
- On our busiest days, we will have a staff member outside our entrance doors to greet people and make sure we do not exceed the maximum allowable number of people in the greenhouse and in the store. This staff member will use a clicker to track the number of guests in our store. When we reach capacity, we will be asking our guests to patiently wait until someone leaves before we allow the next group into the store.
The cleanliness of our stores and facilities is always a priority. We are doing the following to maintain the highest possible standards for everyone’s safety and health:
- Sanitizing Plexiglass, countertops, credit card machine after every few guests
- Sanitizing carts when putting them back in the corrals
- Keeping full containers of alcohol-based cleaner at the locations of the carts
- Placing hand sanitizer stations at convenient locations and within the store where appropriate
- Cleaning bathrooms a couple of times during the day
