From the owners, Darin Rinne and Scott Fares:
Interesting times, eh? With so much uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought we should check in with the Wet Paint Community with a “State of the Store” address. The short version: as long as we’re able to keep things normal, we will. This means regular store hours will be observed, and the great mix of creative supplies and knowledgeable service you’ve come to expect will be unchanged.
We’re observing current best practices as directed by the CDC, WHO and Minnesota Department of Health. As these guidelines change, we’ll change our protocols along with them. For now, we’re washing our hands often. We’re wiping down frequently touched surfaces…frequently. If our people get sick, they’re staying home (yes, we have paid time off!). So far, so good.
It’s terribly unsettling to live amongst so many changes & unknowns; thru your continued support, we’re hoping to maintain a little piece of familiarity amongst the uncertainty of the coming weeks.
A note from our Programming Manager, Virginia McBride about classes and events at Wet Paint:
“In line with recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health that were announced today, Wet Paint will be postponing/rescheduling all classes and events that were originally to take place in the next few weeks.
I will be coordinating with each instructor as our options start opening up again and notify all participants of the new dates. I will be working through the class list in order of occurrence. You will automatically be transferred to those new class dates when they are set with the option to receive store credit to be used on another class within one year.
Thanks for your love of classes at Wet Paint and your patience as we work out all the details.”
