Coronavirus Update

Re: "Novel Coronavirus"

Effective immediately and until further notice:

• Our shiny new cafe will be closed

• Leagues are suspended

• Events are cancelled

• Store hours are reduced

• Shipping will be free or discounted*

We will be pivoting to developing our online business for the time being; this will allow those staff with high-risk family situations to be able to work from home until the situation improves.  As we prepare for further possible disruptions we ask our customers to consider reaching out to us for a shipping option. Feel free to contact us online...chances are, if you're bored or lonely at home, we'll be feeling it here too.

*single card orders $10 or more ship FREE

*other non-oversized orders $100+ ship FREE

(In Canada and US only)

Hairy Tarantula Pandemic Protocol

 Since an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, until the global "COVID-19" pandemic is under control we will be changing the way we run events at the Hairy Tarantula.

   We can squeeze almost 100 players into our shop for a big event, but effective immediately we are spacing our tables further apart and limiting entries to 32 players, 4 players per table.

   We ask our customers to wash their hands when needed in one of our two bathrooms; the soap is never empty.

   We further ask our customers to please refrain from attending any events if experiencing any flu-like symptoms; we do not want to turn you away from our store, but we will if an abundance of caution requires it.

   We have recently increased sterilization protocols targeting frequently handled surfaces like doorknobs.

   Further, for some events like the upcoming Ikoria Magic prerelease we will be working with Wizards of the Coast to provide a methodology for running your own small prerelease at home with a few friends and family instead of requiring attendance in-store.  More details to follow soon.

   Thanks for your understanding and cooperation as we adjust our procedures to best effect the continued health of our customers, staff, and business operations.

   Chief Operational Wizard,
   Hairy Tarantula
