The start and finish of this message is a full circle message of truth: The Oiselle Flagship store and staff love a bustling store vibe, welcome your visits, and are here to bring you flystyle and community.
After being closed for nearly four months, the Oiselle Flagship store cautiously but enthusiastically reopened. We put our personal discomfort and nervousness around COVID-19 exposure aside, ready to greet smiling eyes as they browsed the latest flystyle.
Instead, we’ve witnessed how the stress and uncertainty has manifested through customers’ compromised social graces and lack of self-awareness and human kindness. We get it: standing in line six feet apart while constantly being asked to sanitize your hands and not touch your face by an exhausted retail employee is frustrating. However, we’re that exhausted retail team and we’re here to tell you we’re doing the best we can. We do and bring our best because we love what we do, we love flystyle, and we’re here to bring it out to you all! We won’t lie: the discouragement is real, as we find ourselves constantly having to remind shoppers (always politely and firmly) to: “hand sanitize; wear your mask & keep it on; maintain your distance, try clothes on at home if possible, we can’t process web returns but we can send it back for you.”
As a company that values community and making a positive impact through the sharing of experiences, we’re sharing ours, with the hope that a reader might give us a high-five for patience in the midst of a pandemic, learning a tip or two, or finding that “oops, that was me. I’ll be better.” With that, we bring you:

Also. if the store marks out a series of one•way routes through aisles or sections, please follow it. They are doing this to manage distancing and proximity between customers. Look up and follow the signs (I am guilt of not paying attention to these requests; I will endeavor to do better)
