Dear Beloved Community 🖤(Last updated March 31, 2021)
First off...Thank you SO MUCH for all of your love and support through these many crazy months. Crazy isn't even the right word, is it?
Please take a moment to review our important boutique safety guidelines, which have been put in place to keep you, us, and the community as a whole safe. This has always been our highest priority, and will continue to be as we all do our best to navigate this pandemic.
We are pleased to offer free curb side pick up, or fast flat rate shipping options for anyone that for any reason, is unable or unwilling to properly wear a full coverage mask (properly covering your mouth and nose) for the entire time spent in our boutique. Thank you for understanding that we are unable to make exceptions on our mandatory mask requirement for anyone, regardless of reason.
This is the text on this image, if it is hard to read on your device:
MASKS ARE MANDATORY
to enter the boutique, no exceptions can be made. Please know this: Masks are a simple kindness we can provide others. They are to protect those around us first, ourselves second.
is mandatory upon entry. We know it smells like bad tequila…we don’t like it either! However, it is the only way we can keep each other + our available treasures clean + safe for everyone. We have multiple stations available throughout the store to re-sanitize, if you need to touch your face, phone, keys, or personal items after sanitizing upon entering.
To ensure safe distancing between us all while sharing space, please note we have had to limit the amount of beautiful humans in the boutique at a time. While we do not want you to feel rushed in any way during your visit, we do respectfully ask you to remain mindful of your group size + time spent, especially if others are waiting to enter. (Children count towards our capacity too!)
Feels awkward + uncomfortable + is far from second nature for us all still. However - it is SO important! Maintaining distance allows us to be as respectful as possible to those around us + ourselves. Please maintain 6' distance from others at all times.
PLEASE LOOK AT EVERYTHING
But only touch the treasures after mindfully asking yourself “are my hands still sanitized?” If you have touched your phone, your face, your keys, wallet or personal belongings since entering, kindly re-sanitize before touching any of the treasures. They want to be touched + they want to come home with you! They also need to stay as sanitized as possible. Thank you SO much for your mindful consideration.
Our current Boutique hours are 12 pm - 6pm daily + Holidays 12 pm - 5 pm and we can not wait to see you! In addition to our boutique shopping availability, we also have these options available for you all:
Free Contactless Pick Up from the boutique, with most orders being ready within hours. Please note some orders do take longer to prepare, so please do ensure that you wait for the “ready for pick up” confirmation from us with pick up instructions, before coming to the boutique. Pickups are available 7 days a week.
Our Normal Flat Rate Expedited Canada Post Shipping options for anywhere in North America. We are shipping every day, with our normal flat rate expedited shipping options still in place. 👏🏻 We have also just added a new Free Shipping feature too, orders in western Canada will ship free over $100, Eastern Canada is free over $150, and US orders ship free over $200.
Our beautiful boutique was closed for in-person shopping from March 19th, until July 16th. My goodness, it was a hot second! Please note that if our hours do need to change, they will be immediately updated here, and on our google listing.
We are indescribably grateful for the support you have all shown us through this pandemic so far. To all who allowed us to continue being of service through local delivery, curbside pick up, or shipped orders while our boutique doors were closed... you helped ensure that they could re-open again. To every single one of you who has come to the boutique for in person shopping since we have re-opened, to all of you who have yet to come but are going to, please know that your choice to shop independent means more now than ever before. Thank you for continuing to support any and all independent businesses, whenever you can.
To my fellow small business owners, to the many of you reading this negatively affected, or sick, to anyone who is scared or struggling to navigate these massive changes in our lives and the world: We are here to do anything that we can, to help support the all through this. You are not alone. The impacts of this so far have been... and may continue to be dramatic in scale for many. WE ARE WITH YOU.
To everyone reading this... we are also deeply grateful for the sacrifices you have made, to keep The All safe. ⚔️ Truly... Thank you. Such love, respect, and gratitude for you and yours. Take care of yourselves, and each other. 🙏🏻
-All of us here at Rite of Ritual 🖤
So... Where do we suggest starting first, now that we're here?
We continue to do everything in our power to shop independent ourselves through this shaky time, and we want to highlight some of the amazing and talented local indie makers and brands that we offer too. Earthen Alchemy, The Witch Down The Lane, Pitch Black North Tea, Inner Wolf Jewelry, and Brutally Beautiful are just a few, you can find the collection of them all right here. Know that the purchase of any of these products, not only directly supports us and our families, but these incredible makers - and their families too.
Be well. Stay Safe. We will all get through this together.⚔️
With Love + Gratitude
Your family at Rite of Ritual
