COVID-19 Reopening Procedures

COVID-19 Reopening Procedures 6/9/20

We are pleased to announce that we will begin offering by appointment store shopping visits on Tuesday, June 9, 2020!  We are here to help with all of your dance supply needs; fittings/assistance for all types of dance shoes and dancewear. At this time because of state regulations our fitting room is closed, so clothing can not be tried on.  For the time being, appointments will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12:00 – 5:00.  We are happy to work with you if other days/times are more suitable. 

Here is what we are doing to provide a health conscious environment for you while shopping at Petit Jete:

  1. We will be wearing facemasks.
  2. We will be practicing 6’ feet physical distancing while working with you.
  3. Complete cleaning of racks, the barre, and the checkout area will occur between every appointment.
  4. Any shoes that are tried on, will be taken to a designated area in the store to air out for at least 48 hours. 
  5. The store has been divided into three distinct areas;  one for pointe shoe fittings, one for dancewear and the third for other dance shoe fittings.  Signs will be posted to identify those areas.
  6. We are going to focus on shoes and other dancewear items for now as all fitting rooms are required to be closed by state regulations so clothing can not be tried on. 
  7. Also, because of the virus, we are not able to accept returns or make exchanges of dancewear or leotards.

Here is what we are asking of you to do during your visit: 

  1. We ask that only the dancer and/or one parent/guardian come to the appointment. 
  2. Wear a facemask upon entering Senter Place. This is the buildings requirement. This applies to the dancer and the parent/guardian accompanying them.  We will except you to keep your masks on throughout your appointment.
  3. Please check in when you arrive. 
  4. We will provide hand sanitizer for you to use upon entering the store.  
  5. We ask that you maintain a 6 foot distance.
  6. Please refrain from touching any items.  We, as your personal shoppers, will be happy to show you anything you are interested in.

We can schedule your appointment one of three ways:

  1. Call or text us at 207-370-7891
  2. You may email us at, provide your name and phone number, and one of us will call to schedule your appointment.

We are so happy to be of assistance to all of our customers.  We have missed you and look forward to seeing you soon!  Thank you for shopping local and small!
