Dear Bluff Country Co-op Community,
As a full-service grocery store and kitchen, we are aware that we play a vital role in providing sustenance to our community. As a community-owned business, we have a heightened commitment to ensure that our store can serve you with the safest food and service possible.
We are open. We continue to be open 8 am – 8 pm, 7 days a week. At this time we anticipate keeping those hours. We are closing our deli seating area at 5pm today, until March 27th. If you have concerns about coming to the store to shop for yourself, please give us a call and one of our employees can assist you by taking a telephone order, arranging payment, and meeting you in the parking lot with your groceries.
We have food. We are still receiving food deliveries daily. While we may not have everything on your list, we do have most staples. Please ask an employee if you aren’t finding what you need.
We are cleaning. To minimize the risk of spreading the virus to you and our staff, we are temporarily pre-packaging our Kitchen and Bulk items. Several weeks ago we increased sanitizing efforts in public areas and the back room of the store. We are encouraging staff to stay home if they are in a higher risk category or have traveled recently. Staff absences related to COVID-19 will not affect their employment at BCC.
We are here to support our community. Thank you for your patience and grace while navigating our store during this unprecedented time. We will send more updates as things evolve.
If you have questions or would like more details on BCC’s efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 507-452-1815, or send us a message on FaceBook.
StoreDawn Schreiber, General Manager
