Safer Shopping in Mud Bay Stores

Learn About the Steps We're Taking to Stop the Spread of COVID-19

Mud Bay News |  March 20, 2020

Seeing you and your pets are the best parts of our workday. But with the coronavirus spreading throughout the PNW, it’s important to recognize that even people without COVID-19 symptoms could be sick.

That’s why, although pet supply stores are considered essential businesses under official state guidelines, we’re following social distancing guidelines in Mud Bay stores. We hope these extra steps will help our customers and Muddies stay safe if you need dog or cat food during Washington or Oregon’s stay-at-home orders.

So, when you visit us, here are some tips for successful distancing:

  • Use curbside pickup when you’re feeling unwell. Just call your local store to place an order.
  • Look for the blue tape on the floor to see how far apart we should stand when talking or checking out. Our tables are six-feet long, so standing corner-to-corner also works.
  • Don’t worry about signing your credit card receipt when you shop with us.
  • Keep a six-foot distance from other customers, too, especially when waiting in line.
  • Lead the way to your vehicle when we do carryouts, and open your trunk or door. Once you step aside, we’ll load your purchases into the vehicle for you.
  • Please be patient if you have to wait before entering the store: We’re limiting the number of people who can shop at once, but a Muddy will let you know if we’ve reached our limit.

Mud Bay hopes these simple steps will limit the spread of coronavirus. We’re sad we’ll need to keep our distance for a while, but it’s what we have to do to keep everyone in our community safe.
