A message to our community regarding COVID-19

Dear community: 
As you know, we care about you A LOT. We are taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and we want to minimize the risk to our community as best we can. As a post office, we are categorized as an essential service and have been mandated to remain open. As such, we are keeping a close eye on CDC, WHO, and local agency recommendations to ensure our practices are in line with the good of our public health.

Things are changing daily, but at this moment we are on a strict and frequent surface sanitization schedule and you’ll see our team wearing gloves. We disabled signatures on our ipads so customers do not need to touch them. We have cancelled all upcoming public events.

To encourage you to shop from home instead of in-person, we are offering 20% off all online purchases, free shipping throughout Alaska, and curbside pickup in Juneau. We hope that the same things that brought you to Kindred Post before (a mental health break, celebrating a friend’s birthday, assembling a care package, supporting artists, etc!) can remain true for you now and that we can find healthy alternatives for you to stay creatively connected with the ones you love. We have some games and ideas that we’ll be posting on FB and IG in the coming days; come digitally hang out with us.

Lastly, a word about social responsibility. If we were not categorized as an essential service, we would close the store. Social isolation is social justice right now - it's a personal practice that represents community solidarity and community care. Flattening the curve will take widespread commitment. We're a small business, so we hate to say this .... but please don't come to the physical Kindred Post unless you have to. Even if you don't show symptoms, you may still be carrying and transmitting the virus to more vulnerable members of our community. We love you, but we love ALL of you, and we want to do our part to keep contact low.

Know that we are thinking of you and wanting the best for everyone. Let's keep our distance, but stay connected. Take care of yourself and take care of each other.

Love, 
Team KP
