First we would like to thank everyone who has continued to support Al-Bar Ranch as we have adjusted to operating business differently during the state-mandated stay-at-home order. During this time we have met many of you curbside to provide the orders you placed via Facebook and our contact page. As well, we have shipped several orders to many others. Again thank you for all of your continued support during this unique time.

And now the exciting news…

Al-Bar Ranch Re-Opens May 1st

On May 1 Al-Bar Ranch will be returning to traditional on-site business operations with a few minor adjustments. First we will have modified hours. Until further notice we will be open from 10 am – 5 pm Monday – Saturday. This allows us extra time each evening and morning to sanitize common areas and surfaces. Please note these hours are temporary and we plan to return to our normal operating hours eventually.

As you return to Al-Bar Ranch you will notice each of us wearing face masks per the CDC recommendations when interacting with people in public. Our choice to wear masks is to protect both ourselves and everyone we come into contact with. Although none of us show any symptoms, we want to make sure we are not potentially spreading the virus asymptomatically.

We are kindly asking anyone entering Al-Bar Ranch to wear a face mask as well. We ask this of everyone to help protect all who choose to enter the store. We want to continue to do everything we can to slow the spread of the virus. If you do not have a face mask, we have several hand-made face masks available for your use upon entry. We will collect these masks as you leave to wash and sanitize after each and every use.

As well, when you enter you will find hand sanitizer available for your personal use. Please use the hand sanitizer when you enter. Again this is to help slow the spread and it is something easy we can all do to help protect those we come into contact with.

Additional Recommendations and Changes

  • If large numbers of customers begin to visit Al-Bar Ranch, we may ask for you to wait in your cars until other customers have left to keep the number of visitors at a safe level.
  • While shopping please shop in small groups of 1-2 people and bring only those who are necessary for the needed shopping trip.
  • Please have a purpose with your trip. Do not come just to “get out of the house” or browse.
  • While shopping, continue to follow the recommended social distancing guidelines. Maintain a 6-foot distance between you and other customers.
  • If you have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) please remain home. It is the best thing you can do for yourself and everyone else.

As always you can continue to shop at Al-Bar.com. You will still receive free shipping on orders over $99. As well, with a quick phone call we can shop for you and provide curbside pick up. We are here to help in whatever way we can.
