Sign of the Arrow reopened today, August 17, at 1 p.m. following an unfortunate incident late yesterday afternoon. A car drove through the storefront, damaging the window, door, and other areas. Thankfully, no one was injured.
The shop will close today at the usual time: 5 p.m. and will resume normal business hours on Monday, August 19: 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The shop was closed Saturday morning for further cleanup. From the outside, the shop may not look inviting with the new plywood facade. But inside, it's business as usual. New needlepoint and gift merchandise is available, as well as a bargain from the clearance shelves.
