Read the Latest Email Blast from Rising Tide!
As of tomorrow, April 2nd, Rising Tide will be closed to the public and will take curbside orders only.
Based on the Governor’s Mandate on March 31st, Rising Tide’s square footage falls into the category of examples which include gas stations and convenience stores and would only allow us to have 5 customers in the store at one time. This is true of all the local independent grocers that we are aware of in Maine. It is unfortunate, but also gives us an opportunity to meet the needs of our staff and all of you in the safest way possible.
What does this mean going forward?
Starting tomorrow, we will only offer curbside pick-up. Today, due to the huge response, we had to shut down ordering early, but our capacity will be greatly expanded with our doors closed to the public. Please visit our website later this evening to learn more about our expanded offerings and decreased limitations on your orders.
What can you do?
Please keep supporting Rising Tide during this time. Rising Tide is committed to not laying off any employees, and to do this we need you to keep shopping here. In addition, we hope to maintain our orders with local farmers and vendors, thus supporting our Maine neighbors through this time. To do that, we need you to choose Rising Tide for your shopping needs.
We will also proceed with our commitment to providing free hot soup and bread in our parking lot from 11:00-1:00, Monday through Wednesday, with Salty Boyz Food Truck then offering free food 11:00-1:00, Thursday through Sunday. In addition, we are making Loving Local Meals starting next week that will be distributed to people in need in Lincoln County. Thank you for your contributions to help make this possible.
As always, your support of your co-op will ripple into the community. Thank you for your commitment to a strong local economy that supports your neighbors.
