Edelweiss Gifts is one of many stores that reopened to the public with social distancing guidelines after Gov.

The store plans to return to their regular hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. - photo by Brenda Steurer
