COVID-19 Store Policies

As you all know, we at Tubby & Coo’s take our health and the health of our customers and community very seriously. We are monitoring the pandemic every day, watching what other cities are doing, and keeping an eye on the CDC and WHO recommendations. We are doing our best to ensure everyone’s safety, and we are eternally grateful for all of our amazing customers who have kept us alive during this pandemic. 

Our major deciding factors for re-opening the store to browsing have been a widely available vaccine for kids and the adult population in New Orleans reaching a 70% vaccination rate. Since both of these factors have been met, we have decided to re-open the store to browsing on Small Business Saturday, November 27!

We will continue to take orders for porch pickup (same day if we have it in stock!) and happily make recommendations via phone and e-mail. We will also continue to ship orders anywhere in the U.S.

If you do plan to come in and browse, please take a moment to review our COVID-19 policies for shopping inside of the store below. We will be happy to see your faces again!
