Bauman Covid-19 Response
Bauman’s Farm & Garden takes great pride in our commitment to do whatever is possible to be a source of food & groceries for the surrounding communities where we are located. As circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continue to evolve, we will take the appropriate actions to ensure the health and safety of our customers, employees and the community in general. We ask that you please adhere to the directions they point to in order to facilitate a shopping flow with sufficient social distancing.
Wearing of Masks is REQUIRED
Effective Wednesday, June 24th 2020, customers shopping at Bauman’s Farm & Garden are REQUIRED to wear a face mask as per the directives issued by the Oregon Health Authority and Governor Brown. Bauman’s is located in Marion County. For more information and guidance on this requirement, click here.
We offer call ahead and on-line shopping to accommodate customers who have a disability or medical condition and cannot wear masks. We will be happy to bring your purchases to your car in the parking lot.
In and Outs
We are limiting the entrances and exits to/from the store. The entrance door by the big red barn is open and the exit door is an automatic sliding door. This avoids the need to touch door handles for opening doors. Inside, there are arrows on the floor in certain areas to maintain a one-way flow. We ask that you please adhere to the directions they point to in order to facilitate a shopping flow with sufficient social distancing.
25 Customers in the Store Limit
The number of customers inside the store is limited to 25 total at a time. (25 persons, not 25 parties). Doing so will avoid overcrowding and allow for sufficient social distancing between customers as well with employees. We appreciate your patience with the customer shopping ahead of you or with the employee restocking.
2 Persons Per Household or Party Limit
Please limit yourself to two (2) persons total per household or party inside the store (Yes, kids count as persons). As the total customers allowed in the store at a time is only 25 persons, this limit allows us to maintain the social distancing recommendations as well as provide access to more shoppers at a time in the store. There are no household/party size restrictions in the garden center. Thank you for your consideration.
Clean Hands & Masks
All customers, including children, shopping at Bauman’s are asked to sanitize their hands when they enter the store. We have convenient sanitizing stations when you enter the store or the garden center. Again, the proper wearing of a mask is MANDATORY and appreciated!
Please keep the recommended 6ft radius distance from your fellow shoppers and store employees when inside the store as well as at the check-out lines and in the garden center.
A reminder that pets, including therapy, companion and emotional support animals, are not allowed inside the store as per Oregon law! Only service or assistance animals are permitted. Please visit our Pet Policy page for more information. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Clean Carts & Baskets
Disinfecting spray & paper towels are provided for customers at entrances to facilitate the sanitizing of shopping carts and baskets.
Frequently touched surfaces around the store are constantly cleaned and disinfected during the business day.
Until further notice, we will discontinue providing samples of assorted products we sell.
We need your help as well…
