Local Retailers Find Creative Ways to Serve Community During COVID-19
Many restaurants and retailers of Bend’s popular retail hub, the Box Factory located at 555 SW Industrial Way, are making the best out of a difficult situation. With the ever-changing rules and regulations presented by COVID-19, Compass Commercial’s tenants are working hard to stay open by offering online ordering, pick-up and delivery options and online classes. All tenants have implemented the CDC recommendations by increasing cleaning, wearing masks and gloves and the addition of sanitization stations.
Valentine’s Deli started offering a “pay-it-forward” option for anyone who wants to support and thank our local health care workers. Sandwiches will be delivered to feed those working on the front lines at St. Charles once a week. Takeout and curbside pick-up are available with new menu options coming soon.
Other restaurants providing pick-up and delivery options included Strictly Organic, Bledsoe Family Winery, Fix and Repeat and Miyagi Ramen. Call ahead of time to place your order and they will bring the order out to your car. Miyagi Ramen is currently delivering orders through Grubhub, Postmates or Uber Eats. Interested in doing a wine tasting? Bledsoe Family Winery is doing virtual tastings and videos about the winery.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, get the perfect cake ordered from Foxtail Bakeshop. Order your favorite cold brew drink online from Riff Cold Brewed through their website or Amazon. Others practicing social distancing included Iron Elephant Tattoo, Valentine Ventures, LLC and John L. Scott. Their staff and brokers are working remotely and are available by Zoom and appointment only.
Exercise facilities are offering ways to take your workouts home with you. Sekse Fit is live-streaming classes for free, including “quickie” and full-length workouts ranging from dance, toning and sculpting, flexibility and pole conditioning. Recharge is hosting online classes and new Q&A sessions with therapists, coaches, doctors, athletes and more. Worried about missing a yoga class? Yoga Lab is offering discounted Zoom classes to keep students moving while social distancing.
