LOCAL SHOPPING, EATERIES & TRANSPORTATION

STORESEATERIES | TRANSPORTATION

The following is a list of changes and accommodations that our local businesses have made to help us
through this health crisis.
Updates occur frequently this is what we know as of now.
Note: Every store is different, and the information/services are
evolving.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR SHOPPING DURING THE PANDEMIC:

  • Have a waterproof box with a lid to place on your porch for pickup and delivery
  • Keep wipes next to the door (Homemade wipes stored in a Ziploc bag are just as effective as store bought ones
  • If possible, order and pay online
  • For payment upon delivery:
  • Keep cash from the ATM on hand: $20s for errands, $5 for tips
  • Purchase gift cards from local stores that you frequent, such as Market Basket, Rite Aid and Petco

This short YouTube video has helpful tips for grocery shopping.
