Bend Central District Offers Updates on Local Businesses


With the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor’s stay at home order, a lot of our local businesses are facing challenging times. The Bend Central District is a place where makers roll up their sleeves and find creative solutions with what they’ve got. Oregon Spirit Distillery has already stepped up for the community by making hand sanitizer free of charge.

Now is the time for all of us to support the local businesses that keep Bend running in good times and bad! Here are some messages from BCD business owners who have found coronavirus-safe adaptations to their services and need you to help out by buying local.

Oregon Spirit Distillers

We are happy to announce that we will be providing 8-oz bottles of hand sanitizer free of charge at the bottle shop. One per person, while supplies last.*

Because of the increasing demand for the product and the limited availability of the ingredients, we have decided that we will accept donations that will go directly toward resupplying our stock. Donate here!

So far we have provided sanitizer to DHS, the fire department, several day cares, homeless shelters as well as the City. We are fortunate to be able to supply this service and only ask for donations from those who can help us provide it. Thank you.

*They will post on their Facebook when they run out.

We will send images of any like pieces in stock. We can set up a private appointment for you to come buy the piece(s).

Please remember and SHARE that we are still offering our moving, hauling and eco-junking services. Life still moves forward (real estate transactions, leases ending, escrow closing, moving, etc.) requiring these kinds of services. I personally have tons of construction experience. We are also opening slots for our restoration and repair services.

Want more options? Visit Bend has a special website dedicated to giving updated information about which businesses are open and their adaptations during this time.

And remember, the most important thing you can do for your community right now is to limit the spread of COVID-19 by staying home when you can and practicing social distancing when you can’t.
