During holidays and other occasions, an announcement will be made for days that will be unstaffed.

All members are still allowed access during this time, but are expected to be diligent about securing the shop.


Rules during these Unstaffed Days[edit]

Port City Maker Members - Still allowed access, but two conditions follow:

  • You will need to request an access code from Alex. Please send an email otherwise contact before the day of. You can do this via text the day of if necessary.
  • You will need to ensure that the shop is shut down and locked up before you leave, just as a 24/hr member would. If you turn on a light, turn it off before you leave. If you open a door, close it before you leave. If you are the last one to leave, make sure all lights are off and locks are secure. Follow the map below for locations of lights and locks.

Maker's Guild Members - Still allowed access as normal

  • Pay attention to who is at the shop and ask if they know how to lock up. It's everyone's job to make sure the shop is secure.
  • If you turn on a light, turn it off before you leave. If you open a door, close it before you leave. Don't assume the next person will take care of it.

And of course, as always, clean up after yourself and try to leave the place better than you found it.
