As usual, the store will be closed on Thanksgiving Monday. This year, that's Monday October 13th. Those who celebrate, enjoy the annual nomming of turkeybirds / recovery thereof. Those who don't, enjoy the statuatory holiday. Day off, woohoo!

We'll also be closed on Saturday October 18th* for a Really Awesome reason: a Bakka Phoenix family wedding!  Our very own Leah Bobet is getting married, and we're shutting up shop so we can celebrate like hardcore celebratarians. Our prediction: the 18th is going to be a GREAT day. 

*We'll reopen as usual on Sunday the 19th (we may be squinty-eyed and headachy, but we'll be open).
