Whew, flattening the curve

Hi Folks-

Whew, where do you start? By the time you have that figured out, things will have changed. I’m sure you’re inundated with Corona news, so we won’t do that here. I can tell you what’s going on at the Market.

Peter and my Dad, falling into high risk categories are only making flying guest appearances. We have instituted a rather impressive sanitation schedule. Food service places like ours are usually pretty good anyway (our Health Dept. scores rock!) but we took our sanitation selves right out into the market, so every handle you touch, every cooler door, every counter top, every door knob etc has been sanitized within the last hour. Our cashiers are wearing gloves during busy times and changing them very frequently (protecting customers and staff alike). We sanitize our pens, in short we are trying to be as protective as we can be.

We will have a regular lunch tomorrow but after that made to order sandwiches and salads will not be available. What will be available is a variety of your favorite sandwiches and salads in the reach in. The underlying theory here is…no congregating…no hanging out together waiting in a long line.

The store is fully on and provides a nice option to the scene at Shaw’s or other bigger markets. We are sanitizing like crazy out here, trying to bag appropriate produce and keep the shelves stocked with basics. Yes, we have toilet paper but you can only have one roll.

If you are in one of the high risk categories we encourage you to come in early. We open at 6:30 and while you might see a person strolling through for a cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich you pretty much have the place to your self. We are also happy to provide gloves if that makes things more comfortable.

There will be a person in the deli to make breakfast sandwiches, sell fish and meat, prep for soups and make prepared foods. They won’t be able to make food to order but they are helping to keep everything moving forward.

We made a calculated decision tonight to buy approximately the same amount of fish that we normally do so availability shouldn’t be a problem. If you want to reduce your face time please call the market and we will have it packed and ready to go by a certain time.

So we are all in this together, be kind to each other, tip well everywhere (service people are really going to take a hit on this). Learn the elbow bump, it’s going to be okay, we can do this!
