OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — For the past month, That Pottery Place, in Omaha, has been closed for parties and groups, taking away much of their business.
“We’re way down in sales, we can’t match that at this point,” Nancy King, Owner, That Pottery Place said.
But they're trying something new, take home pottery.
“They will pick out their piece of pottery like one of these of course and then we package out paints in little containers,” King said.
All of your choices are listed on their newly revamped website. You can shop online and they'll deliver with in 10 miles or you can do curbside pick-up.
“We’re doing the social distancing the best we can,” King said. “We still disinfect every day even though we don’t have the customers in, we still are very diligent about taking care of the staff.”
When you're done painting your pottery at home, bring it back to the store and they will put a clear coat on it and fire it.
“It still has the same quality as when they would paint in our studio, same idea. So, it’s dinnerware, its usable,” King said.
She said she has even heard Girl Scout troops are having a lot of fun getting together on Zoom to paint their pottery as a group.
She's hopeful this new business model will help her 22-year-old company make it through these difficult time.
That Pottery Place is located off 78th and Dodge. Pottery-to-go is available by reservation Tuesday 12-6 p.m., Wednesday-Saturday 12-4 p.m. and Sunday 12-2 p.m.
