NEW SHOPPING GUIDELINES
Due to recent improvements Asbury has made to the gym floor, we will have new guidelines on baskets permitted for shopping the sale.We will no longer allow any type basket that has wheels or rolls on the floor. As well, all laundry baskets must have a clean towel attached to the bottom; however they still must be carried and not scooted or dragged across the floor. We realize this will become difficult after the basket is full of clothes, but you will need to take items back and forth to your “pile” rather than drag your items behind you. Towels on the bottom of baskets will protect the floor during the times you must set your basket down.
If your basket does not have a towel attached to the bottom, you will have to leave it outside the gym doors.
You will be able to set your baskets down while you are in the checkout line, as we will have the checkout path carpeted.
We hope you will understand our new policies as we aim to be good stewards of Asbury’s resources and protect the investments our church has recently made in improving our gym facilities.
