Retail Alliance has been given a bulk quantity of fabric, reusable masks from VDEM to distribute as part of their Forward Virginia effort to reopen businesses. The State is endeavoring to reach those in need, from critical infrastructure partners to private sector partners, large and small.

As the State reopens, Retail Alliance wants store owners and their employees to be protected and reassure customers that they are being serious about safety and cleanliness. A limit of up to 25 masks (5 packs of 5 masks) are available for pick up from the following locations. It will be first-come, first-served and there will be a cap on how many are given out each day to make sure as many people as possible are able to pick up a small quantity.


Uncle B’s Toys & Collectibles (Uncle B’s Thrift) right next to the Cozy Cottage in York Village. The address is 7330 George Washington Memorial Highway, Suite F, Yorktown.

Tuesday – Friday 11am – 7pm,
