I tend to put mine into maintenence mode with an appropriate message on the grey screen.,

An alternative is to disable the checkout so no one can buy, but leave the site up with appropriate notice(s).

Regards

You can just post a notice on the header.

There is a nice little plug in I use on Mace.com PRO site called call for price.

You can set the text to anything you like, but it needs to be set per product (not so fun if you have a lot of products.)

You could use that and set the text to “Not Available till July” or something like that....
