COVID-19 Response

To our KC Family:

The KC Stores are known by many of our customers as “their happy place”.  We consider our customers to be our extended family.

Our goal has always been to provide a welcoming environment with dedicated personalized service and an ever-changing selection of merchandise.  We remain committed to that goal.

As we face the daily uncertainty of COVID-19, we are equally committed to ensuring that our customers know we are “All in this together”.  Our management team has implemented measures to keep our teams and customers safe in each of our three stores which includes greatly enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols. The KC Team will continue to abide by the protocols of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and mandates from the state and federal government. For more information related to Virginia Governor Northam's order effective at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 and to remain in place until 11:59 PM on Thursday, April 23, 2020, please see below*.

We remain open our normal hours to serve you and invite you to visit as you feel comfortable doing so.  Until then, please know that you are in our thoughts and we are grateful to have you as part of our family. (Our normal hours are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; open other days 9 am - 5 pm except Sunday Noon - 5 pm.)

With kind regards,
