During this COVID-19 shift, they’re also adapting and offering call ahead ordering with curb-side pick up.

Their hours are Monday thru Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., for now. Regular store hours are Monday thru Friday 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

They also have some décor items like outside solar lighting for your walkway, your favorite sports team flag or outdoor décor, and more. Call ahead for availability or check their Facebook page, but they are still stocking Colorx wipes and other essential cleaning supplies during the pandemic.

April Maintenance Reminders:

  • Have your HVAC spring service done
  • Stain your deck, replace any rotten boards
  • Repair caulking and weather stripping around doors and windows
  • Seal tile grout, caulk tubs and showers
  • Turn water on to winterized hose bibs
  • Fertilize your lawn
  • If you have a sprinkler system, now is a good time to get them to turn it back on if it’s been winterized
  • Clean out refrigerator and freezer coils; change your water filter
  • Clean bathroom vents

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
