Three Fun and Safe Ways to Run Your Shop
The Lil’ Shopper’s Shoppe understands that 2020 is not a “normal” year. In an effort to make the students, staff, and volunteers feel safe, we are offering the following three options. In addition, we will waive the cancellation fee if you are unable to run your shop for any reason.

NOVEMBER HOLIDAY SHOPS: Many schools run a successful holiday shop in November. This is a great option if your school plans to close between Thanksgiving and Christmas.


Traditional Shop: School Delivery

  • Merchandise is shipped to the school
  • Volunteers set up the shop in the school
  • Students walk through the shop, select gifts, and make purchase
  • Dates: Most schools run 3 to 5 days, during November or December

Touchless Shop: School Delivery

  • Merchandise is be shipped to the school
  • Volunteers set up the shop in the school
  • Students walk through the shop and enjoy a touchless preview of the gifts and/or preview the gifts online from the safety of their classrooms or home
  • Students pick out gifts and record selections on an order form
  • Students place order form and money in the budget envelope
  • Volunteers collect order forms and money
  • Volunteers pack up individual orders and deliver to classrooms
  • Dates: Most schools run 3 to 5 days, during November or December

Virtual Shop: Home Delivery

  • Parent letter and/or email is sent to families
  • Families shop and pay for gifts online
  • Gifts are shipped directly to individual family homes
  • Dates: Shop runs during November, all orders must be received by Thanksgiving to guarantee Christmas delivery

The Virtual Shop can be combined with a Traditional or Touchless Shop for schools that have both students in the classroom and students studying online from home.

Example: If you have 500 students in your school and 300 are in the classroom (even for a few days a week) we can send gifts for the 300 students to shop in a traditional or touchless shop. For the 200 students studying online from home, you email them the parent letter/email for them to be able to participate and select gifts from the virtual shop.
