Open Sundays

April 21, 2017

Well, it's the end of our second week amidst the excavators and shovels, and it's been an interesting adventure! First of all, a big thanks to all who have come out to the store.

Most importantly, we have changed our hours to better serve our dear Auburn Family.  In addition to our Tuesday to Saturday hours of 11am-5pm, we will also be open...
