There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy. ~ Ralph H. Blum
Thank you for your ongoing support of Rising Tide and of the employees, producers and community partners that benefit from your patronage. Our wellbeing as a broader population is a top priority and I am writing to acknowledge the rising cases of COVID-19 in Lincoln County and remind you that we are paying attention and taking action.
Rising Tide continues to monitor the situation and balance the needs for a safe place to shop with the importance of remaining open and viable as a business and source of healthy and local food and products. Our recent steps include the following:
- We had briefly opened our indoor seating area to a limited number of customers but have closed it. This will include having staff eat upstairs as well.
- We are increasing the frequency of our sanitizing regime and will continue to provide supplies for cart, basket, and hand sanitation outside the door as well as stations throughout the store.
- I am happy to report that a new cart corral with a roof and sides arrived today and we will put that up in the coming week. That will provide a protected space for shopping carts this winter, while also storing them in the fresh air where the virus is less likely to survive.
- In the next week, we will also set-up small tents outside the door in case we have a line and we will have at least one restaurant-style propane heater to make any outdoor waiting more comfortable.
If you have growing concerns about visiting the store, please remember that Rising Tide does offer a curbside option Monday through Friday and will have it in place for the week of Thanksgiving as well. Please visit our website for additional information.
Even with everything that is happening, and maybe most especially as we are faced with this year’s challenges, finding things for which we are grateful is a foundation to resilience. Wishing you all the best,
Pie it forward!
