All Occasions Party Rentals has implemented several increased safety measures to protect our customers and staff from Covid-19. We have installed several hand sanitizer stations throughout our showroom and warehouse. Masks are available for customers and employees have been provided masks to protect themselves. We've stepped up our daily cleaning of all surfaces to now include twice daily deep cleans and several cleanings per day of high touch points. We've also implemented a new touchless will-call procedure for customers picking up and returning from our warehouse. We have signage displayed in the parking lot that will give detailed instructions for the will-call process.
We are proud of the changes we have made and will continue to work with our local government and health department to ensure we are doing our part to protect our employees and customers. We are looking forward to the vibrant return of events in our area and can't wait to be a part of those special memories. Our showroom is open and available for in person ordering and we are also available by phone for remote ordering.
