I don’t even know what day it is. We’re still in March, right?
Every afternoon, when the Governor appears on my Facebook feed, I feel a ball of anxiety well up inside of me, nervous that even our current minimal business options may need to come to a stop, if she deems a complete lock-down necessary.
In just a matter of days, most of the small businesses in Pella went from full speed ahead into Spring, tulips, and tourism to a screeching halt.
Where the busy downtown streets once made it nearly impossible to find a parking spot near the store you wanted to go in, you can now park right in front of the building of your choice. Where chalkboard signs once lined the sidewalks, greeting visitors to our wonderful boutiques, bakeries and restaurants, regretful notes are now taped to doors saying they are working with only curbside/delivery options or are closed until further notice. Where families from all over once fumbled in and out of every little shop on Saturday afternoons, business owners are now alone behind locked doors cleaning and re-arranging for the time when things return to what they once were, praying that it comes sooner than predicted.
With each passing day we stay up-to-date with the current recommendations, we try to teach our children a few things, and do our best to count our blessings and among those blessings is certainly you, our customers.
Thank you so much for bearing with us while we try to figure out a way to run a business in an completely different way than we have the last three and a half years. Forgive us if we stumble a little bit with your phone orders and frantically try to give our website a face-lift. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support of our little wine shop and the entirety of the downtown. It means more than you'll ever know.
For the moment our curbside hours will be:
