Coronavirus Update (Updated September, 2021)



Please check this site often- We are experiencing unprecedented shortages from all vendors due to the ongoing global labor and materials shortage. We apologize for this inconvenience !


As we navigate through this difficult time, we at A. J. Hastings are doing what we can to protect the health and well being of our employees and customers.


Monday August 10, 2020 we reopened the store to the public after the statewide pandemic shutdown and in store renovation. We are currently open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm. It was a long hiatus but we are glad to see our friends again in person. The staff is wearing masks, sanitizing high touch areas and keeping 6 ft from each other. We ask that our customers wear masks, per Town of Amherst Board of Health mandate, use the provided hand sanitizer and adhere to the 6 ft. distancing protocol.


We are available to answer questions by telephone when we are here and of course by email, which is viewed usually 9:30 am -5:00 pm Monday through Friday .  Response times may be a bit longer than you have come to expect from us in the past due to reduced hours and staff.

Emails are not read during the weekend. Payment for curbside orders will be by credit card only.


A reminder:  When placing an order online, your credit card will not be charged until we fill the order and it is ready for shipping.
