As of Wednesday, April 22, Governor Bullock announced that Montana would begin reopening beginning this Sunday. For a detailed look at what phase one of the 3 tiered plan looks like, please click here.

Now, what does this mean for you and for us? Well, that means that Monday morning we will reopen our doors! Now, it won’t quite be back to business as usual. We will be limiting the number of people allowed in the shop, so that all social distancing guidelines can still be met. The last thing we want is to have to shut down again. For those of you not wanting to come in, no biggie. Curbside pickup and local delivery will still be available. Our ramped up cleaning procedures will continue indefinitely. Buffs or some kind of face coverings will always be appreciated. Don’t have one yet? Now will be a great time to pick up a super useful garment. Look fishy and be responsible.
Another big takeaway from the Governor’s directive is that all nonresident visitors will have to self quarantine for 14 days upon arrival to Montana. While we do look forward to seeing all of you, Montana sure would appreciate each of you sticking to these guidelines. Need something sooner, give us a call and we will arrange it!
For those of you with guide trips coming up, outfitting operations will resume on Monday as well. The big caveats here are obviously the self quarantine period for non residents. This directive is predicted to last well into the summer. For residents thinking about a guide trip, this could be a great time for you. Guides, outfitters, and shuttle companies will all be adhering to strict cleaning and safety policies. This will definitely be a learning process and adjustment for all of us.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank each and every one of you. You all stepped up big time to keep us going during this shutdown. All of the online and phone orders were most certainly appreciated! It’s times like this that really define people, places, and businesses, and once again, Butte proved itself to be an amazing community! Thank you all!!!
Please reach out to us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you!!!
