In order to help spread out traffic and reduce wait times, we are also offering repair appointments M-F 11am-5pm. If you would like to schedule an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adults and children accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome to attend Open Shop. Youth (under 18) must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian. Unaccompanied youth may attend Youth Shop.
