Amoeba San Francisco Is Reopening on Thursday, September 17, 2020

Amoeba SF Is Open

We are happy to announce that Amoeba San Francisco is reopening on Thursday, September 17, 2020! COVID-19 cases in San Francisco have improved, however cases in Alameda County are still spiking and Amoeba Berkeley will remain closed for now.


Starting September 17, 2020 Amoeba SF will have new temporary store hours. The store will be open Thursday – Sunday between 11am – 7pm and will be closed Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The buy counter will have the same hours.


We will, of course, follow all the health and safety guidelines from the City of San Francisco, including social distancing and mandatory wearing of face coverings over the nose and mouth. We will not be checking bags at the front of the store; instead, we will ask to do a visual inspection of larger bags and backpacks.


In addition, please note:


* There will be a limited number of customers in the store at any one time.

* Out of respect for your fellow shoppers, please limit your browsing time.

* Please observe physical distancing of six feet.

* Please apply the provided hand sanitizer upon entering our store.

* We have disposable gloves available to you for browsing.

* There are protective plexiglass shields at our registers and information desk. Please stand behind these shields when being helped and do not touch them.

* Please observe our directional signs.

* Our restroom is for employees only at this time due to health department requirements. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.

* There is no seating available in the store. Parents, please keep young children with you at all times if they cannot be left at home.

* Baskets are sanitized after each customer and we have implemented a surface-cleaning schedule to ensure regular sanitization.


For customers who are limiting their time in public, please call the store at 415-831-1200 and we can hold your items at the registers for 24 hours, or you can ask to do a phone order and we will mail them to you. No curbside pickup at this time due to the ongoing construction on Haight St. If you have any specific questions or needs, please call the store after we reopen so we can assist you.


We can’t wait to see you all again in San Francisco!
