Morningstar’s Bed Bath & Curtain Outlet | Clarksville
With the ongoing consequences of the Coronavirus, we would like to reassure our valued customers that we are still open daily.  Because the majority of our products are manufactured in the U.S.A, we are in the unique position of being able to supply our customers with product on-demand and not be as reliant on the supply chain from China.  Having said that, there may be certain products affected, but we are working very closely with our sources to keep our inventory well-stocked. We are confident and have the reassurance that our heavy inventory of back stock has been obtained prior to any harmful outbreaks.  In addition, we at Morningstar’s would like to reassure customers that we are taking all precautions in relation to the spread of the virus.  First, we have instituted a strict hand-washing and sanitizing routine for all employees who handle our products. Secondly, because the majority of our products are manufactured in the U.S. we have reduced the risk of infection from imported products.  Finally, we are encouraging all of our employees to stay home if they have any symptoms relating to the virus. 
We would like to thank you for your continued support of our business and look forward to it and are hopeful for a healthy 2020.
