CO-OP SHOPKEEPING DATES are scheduled prior to the start of an installment. Once the schedule is set, all participants will be linked with shop schedule and contact list.

For any schedule updates, please email Stella ASAP at info@hudsonriverexchange.com with subject ‘Pop Up Schedule Change’ and make sure to include date you’ll be missing and the person who has agreed to fill in for you. Make sure schedule changes have been made at least 36 hours prior to the scheduled shift.

We understand that emergencies occur and unexpected things come up. If you are unable to find a replacement and unable to make up the shop time you’ll be missing, Hudson River Exchange will fill in and there will be a fee of $50/shift or an adjustment to the consignment percentage — we can discuss and see what makes the most sense.
