By now, we know that the threat of COVID-19 to our community is both real and imminent. To do our part to protect our community and our employees, we have decided to temporarily close our doors to the public.
By closing our doors, we hope to protect not only our employees, but the most vulnerable in our community. The elderly, the immunocompromised, and their caregivers are depending on us to socially distance.
As a small, locally-owned business, we do not have the funds to stay open without income for long. We know that many of you are worried about your financial situation right now, but please consider supporting us (and other community-owned businesses) if you have the means. This is a time of uncertainty for all of us, but we know that our community is at its strongest when we support each other.
How You Can Support Us :
Buy a Gift Card Online! This is awesome because it equates to money in our pockets when we need it the most. Give it to a friend, or keep it for yourself to use when we re-open back up! Eugene Location and Ashland Location both have gift cards available.
Order From Us Online. Stay Home! You can shop our online catalog from the comfort of your own home! To encourage our supporters to stay at home, we are continuing to offer FREE SHIPPING for all online orders totaling $50 or more. To claim, simply input the code "socialdistancing" at checkout!
Order Curbside Pickup. If you're trying to limit your social interactions and keep distance between you and others, order from us online and select curbside pickup! You'll be able to come by the shop and text us that you've arrived, then we will bring your order right outside to your car for you. No need for direct interaction!
Do a Consultation via Phone or Text. We know that part of the difficulty of shopping for sex toys and lubricants is figuring out what product is right for you. Guiding our customers to the best product for their body's needs has always been a cornerstone of our business. So if you need a little guidance when shopping, give a call or send a text message to us at 541-606-0553. We'll be happy to talk you through our favorite products and help you decide with confidence! And if the product that's right for you isn't on our website yet, we will add it just for you!
Book Private Shopping Hours. Currently, we are still allowed to book private shopping hours for 1-2 people at a time. That way, we can still adhere to social distancing requirements while allowing you to shop the store. To schedule a time to shop privately, send us an e-mail at [email protected] !
Small businesses like ours are interwoven with our community. When you struggle, we struggle. But even though we cannot be close to one another physically right now, the need for community support has never been greater. Take care of yourself, and take care of each other. We are in this together, and we will make it through this together.
Thank you so much for your continued support. We will see you on the other side.
- Kim & the AYLI Team
