Policies and Procedures


    In honoring the State and National recommendations,

Bearly Used Boutique will be Temporarily Closed 

due to the COVID 19 virus pandemic.   

Stay home and stay safe!



 To Our BUB Friends and Family,


     The Bearly Used Boutique Team is closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus    (COVID-19) situation and the impact it is having on our community.

     We share your concerns regarding the spread of the virus and your safety is our top priority.


    We, like many other businesses, have taken additional measures for safety. Those measures include the additional disinfection of frequently touched

     surfaces such as  the countertops, door handles, the children’s play area and the restroom. There are also multiple hand sanitizing bottles throughout 

     the store for our use and well as our customers.

     As always, if you have any specific questions or concerns, you may always speak with a member of our Team.


      Bearly Used Boutique is a family owned and locally operated small business. As a small business, we care deeply for our community in which we are

      privileged to serve and want to support all the families we come in contact with.  We want to be wise in our actions, but we do not want to participate

      in the panic that has gripped the hearts of so many. When faced with difficult challenges, we strive to make good decisions.


     That’s where we are right now- We will continue to make good decisions on a daily basis understanding the ever-changing nature of this particular                                     circumstance and we will remain vigilant in our commitment to your safety. We will certainly continue to monitor the situation and do our best to                                      keep you safe and to continue to provide a safe shopping experience for you and your family.


     Thank you,

     Elizabeth Gerhart

     Owner, Bearly Used Boutique
