COVID-19: Our Store Is Closed
One World Market, Ithaca's non-profit, fair trade store, has decided to temporarily close its doors at the conclusion of business on Saturday, March 21. We reached this decision last evening ahead of the Governor's announcement this morning and it was a difficult one because our store not only provides employment to members of our community, but also ensures a living wage to artisans all over the world.
But this is a global pandemic and we want to do our part to help flatten it.
In the meantime, our employees will focus on helping us rapidly establish an online version of One World Market, research stories about the artisans who make our unique products, and use this time as an opportunity to think about ways to freshen the store's look for when we re-open. We care about our staff and are committed to keeping them employed as long as it is financially feasible to do so.
Community members who wish to help us during this time can do so in a number of ways:
With gratitude for your continued support!
