How do I shop in person?

What is your policy on mask wearing?

With the mask mandate lifted, Potted Elephant is switching to optional, individual protection for masking. Omicron has made cloth masks obsolete. We will be providing our vaccinated crew N95 masks. By request, we’ll provide customers complimentary N95 masks for their shopping experience that they can take with them everywhere else to protect themselves. We will be monitoring variant spread and follow state mandates to protect our customers.
