CHICO, Calif. - Retail stores adapt to state guidelines after Butte County was put on the watchlist.

"I believe 5th Street Clothing Company is a safe environment to be in I know it is or I myself wouldn’t there or my employees wouldn’t be there," said owner Carol Munson.

5th Street Clothing Company has been in business for 42 years.

"It's been a struggle ever since they closed us down," said Munson.

In May, owner Carol Munson reopened the doors to her downtown Chico business.

"I have people that walk in and say it's awesome to be here they’re comfortable and I have other people that walk in an say is it ok to come in are you open and I'm like yes im open," said Munson.

"People come in they’re happy to see us we’re happy to see them and we’re hoping it’ll get better we have faith that it will we’re going forward," said Terri Shelton, manager.

Munson says her shop has always been clean but ramped up safety protocol after the pandemic hit.

"We have the sanitizer for your hands and we do go over the clothes with the led lights," said Shelton.

Butte County Public Health said shopping inside is allowed as long as the store is following the state's guidelines.

"And if they wanna wear a mask that’s their choice to wear a mask and I believe people have a choice to not wear a mask," said Munson.

"And we feel ok with that most of our customers are ok with that," said Shelton.

Foot traffic has been slow, but Munson is determined to stay afloat.

"People need to come out and shop if they want the downtown to survive we’re operating on a no fear we’re here," said Shelton.

"I love Chico and I love the people I love what I do and I know it’s a safe place to be," said Munson.

The city of Chico code enforcement does not enforce, cite, or punish because they don't have enough resources to do so.

State guidelines include face coverings, social distancing, and training employees with cleaning and sanitation protocol.

They encourage compliance with the state's guidelines and if a business is brought to their attention, they will go there and ask them to comply as well as provide masks and hand sanitizer.

5th Street Clothing Company also offers curbside and online ordering.
