We hope this note finds you safe and healthy! We have come to the difficult and sad decision to close our shops for the short term while our community social distances and responds to the health crisis caused by COVID-19. We need to do our part to help contain this crisis and flatten the curve, so we are taking every precaution we can to help protect our communities and neighbors.
Our heart goes out to everyone who has been or will be impacted by this health crisis. We are here for you, and the best thing we can think to do is to try to bring joy and light to our community in any small way we can.
HARPERANDTUCKER.COM will be open for retail therapy with free 3-day shipping throughout the USA and no-contact same-day delivery in RI. You can now select same-day delivery at checkout and we will drop your goodies at your front door. We are offering personal shopping appointments by text, email, video or phone – contact us and we will set it up in whatever way is best for you! We also have gift cards available if you want to support us now and shop later.
We also want to reassure you how seriously we are taking this and to be transparent about every extra precaution we are taking at this time.
1. Sanitizing and disinfecting. We are washing and disinfecting our hands and all surfaces in our packaging area before handling any clothing you order and the packaging it comes in. When we receive shipments of clothing from our brands, we are disinfecting the packages before bringing them in and opening them.
2. Limiting exposure. It is only the two owners, Natalie and Dakota, who are entering our shops and handling our clothing and packages. They are taking utmost care to follow the sanitizing and disinfecting policies explained above. They are also both participating strictly in social distancing.
2. Contact-free delivery. When you select same day delivery (RI only), we will drop your bag at your door and text or email you to let you know your goodies have arrived. While we would love to see you and say hi, we know right now that social distancing is the best way to keep our communities as healthy as possible.
In brighter news - despite all that is going on in the world, we are starting to receive some amazing Spring and Summer clothing and accessories. We hope you'll follow along at @harperandtucker and sign up for our newsletter to stay in the know. You can also always check our New Arrivals page to see all of our newest goodies! We hope that a little dose of beauty and fashion will brighten your days.
We want to let you know that we appreciate all of your support now more than ever. Every post, share, comment, and order means the WORLD to us. This is a tough time for all small businesses, and we are doing our best to support other small business around us as well - whether it be our neighbors, or the brands and artisans that make the clothing we bring to you. We know we will all get through this time together!
