As of March 27th, The Sojo completely closed our doors to the public in compliance with the Pitt County, City of Greenville, and State of NC mandates to “Shelter in Place” so we can stop the spread of COVID-19. We will remain closed until the State or local authorities give us the all-clear to safely leave our homes again, likely not before April 30th.
As our shop would normally be celebrating our 11th birthday this week, we are instead struggling to find alternate income streams from a distance. We take the pandemic very seriously, as should you. We WILL NOT be able to offer any shipped orders, nor curb-side pickup. That would still require too much interaction. The Sojo is committed to keeping our staff well and paid through this closure. That won’t be easy, without getting creative, and asking for your financial support.

Other Ways to Help from a Distance
We are still able to remotely apply deposits to a customer account for you to spend in-store later, after the pandemic threat is resolved. To make a deposit on your account, send money through Paypal to: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the note’s field, mention you’re making a deposit on your customer account. Give your preferred customer name, email address, phone #, and mailing address. After we get the all-clear, I’ll mail a special promotional gift and coupon to everyone who makes a deposit during the closure. To spend your in-store credit after we open again, you need only give us your customer name at time of check out.
Thank you for being great customers, and blessings of good health to you all!
