COVID – 19 Update September 3rd

Dear customers of Irish Eyes, Fredericksburg Virginia.
Here’s hoping you are all well and not affected by COVID – 19.  We have had to initiate new protocols at Irish Eyes like frequent sanitizing, wearing face masks and paying attention to other details. Fortunately, we have been able to avoid this infection by paying attention to detail.
Our new shop hours are as follows:
Sundays                               11.00 a.m.  to  5.00 p.m.
Monday thru Thursday    10.00 a.m.  to 5.00 p.m.
Friday and Saturday         10.00 a.m.  to 6.00 p.m.
We have successfully installed our new shopping card so customers can shop online at www.IrishEyesofVa.com and look for:

We have many other products that are not yet online so you can still call the shop: 540 373 0703 and talk to one of the staff 
who will be able to walk you thru your purchase.
Please be aware of the following conditions:
#1 Obliviously do not come if you know you are infected or have a temperature.
#2 Please wear a face mask until further notice.
#3 We do not use an answering machine because – as you are aware – it would fill up in half a day with robo-calls
and many customers would think we actually received their message when in fact we had not.
We are busy ordering our Christmas Stock of Woolens, Jewelry, Guinness Merchandise, Fragrances, and a host of other unusual and hard to find one of a kind items. We look forward to seeing many of our regular customers back in the shop as 2020 draws to a close and a whole new year approaches and we can put this last year behind us.
