Shopping Guidelines

Before heading to the store, please review The Little Traveler's in-store shopping guidelines below. They were developed to keep both you and our employees safe from the spread of COVID-19, and we appreciate your cooperation.

  • You must wear a mask covering both your nose and mouth the entire time you are in the store. If you do not have a mask, we will provide one.
  • You must sanitize your hands before entering. We will provide sanitizer at the Fulton Street entrance or you may use your own.
  • Restrooms are available at the center of our store (near the Atrium Café entrance).
  • Everyone will enter at our Fulton Street side entrance. You can exit through our front door onto the porch on Third Street or through the Fulton Street door if people are not in line there waiting to get into the store.​ Checkout is located in our front "fireplace" rooms (formerly Accessories).
  • If necessary, we will limit the number of people in the store at one time to enable social distancing. 
  • If you are feeling at all under the weather, do not come in. We’ll welcome you at a different time when you’re feeling better.

Atrium Café Guidelines

  • We will seat a limited number of people at one time to abide by current recommended restrictions. 
  • Tables are spaced at a distance to allow for proper social distancing. 
  • Seating is limited and will be first come, first served for daily lunch. Reservations are not required, except for Afternoon Tea.
  • A maximum of 4 people will be seated at a table.
  • Hand sanitizer is provided to all patrons before they're seated.
  • We sanitize tables and chairs between each seating, and all servers wear face masks and gloves. 
  • All restaurant patrons must wear a face covering over their mouth and nose when interacting with wait staff and other employees, including when orders are taken and when items are delivered to table.


    Here's what we're doing:

  • Everyone who enters the building uses hand sanitizer upon arrival and throughout the day, at least once per hour.
  • We sanitize all high traffic areas throughout the day.
  • We wear masks covering our mouths and noses throughout the day.
  • We keep our front and side doors open whenever weather permits to enable a constant flow of fresh air.
  • Our air ducts have been re-calibrated to allow more fresh air to come in. That may mean you will feel cool air on you when standing directly below an air duct.
  • All clothes and jewelry that are tried on and not purchased go into a 3-day quarantine.
  • We practice social distancing, staying a minimum of 6-feet away from others.
  • We wash our hands often.
  • We sanitize all hard surfaces that have been touched at least once per hour.

If you'd like to shop but can't come to the store, we have hundreds of Little Traveler favorites available at our Online Shop. Both shipping and touchless curbside pick up are available. You can also shop by phone during regular business hours by calling 630.232.4200.
