West Marine's Response to the Coronavirus

May 13, 2020

West Marine Customers,

As shelter in place restrictions are relaxed or lifted we are all anxious to return to living a modified version of our daily lives, which includes getting back on the water! As we all gear up for summer, we are mindful we need to maintain a healthy environment for our crew and customers visiting our stores.

Throughout the health care crisis, we have relied on guidance from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) as the expert for health guidance to guide our store environments including requiring all crew members to wear a face mask, frequent hand washing and practicing social distancing. Equally we are requesting all customers to wear facemasks and practice social distancing while shopping in our stores and interacting with our crew members. Face masks will be made available to customers who may not have a facemask with them, or we will make alternative methods of shopping available including curb side pick-up and on-line shopping.

Thank you for joining us in support of a healthy environment, and thank you again for your continued support of West Marine.

Have a great summer boating season!

Warm Regards,
Ken Seipel
CEO, West Marine
