Exactly nine years ago today, we opened our little shop just up the road in Port Williams. We had no employees; it was just Ross, doing everything.
As of today, we have no employees again. We’ve gone from a staff of 20 right back to just Ross, doing everything. It has been heart-breaking to lay off our staff members over the last several days. They’ve been wonderful: understanding, kind, and optimistic. Situations like this tend to bring out people’s true colours, and it’s clear that our employees–sigh: former employees–are good people with the right stuff.
We’re trying to be optimistic too, and looking forward to the day when we start calling people back. Until then, you’ll find Ross keeping the shop open for as long as he can on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10am-2pm. If you aren’t able to come to him, e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll try to come to you if he can.
Thank you to our caring and loyal customers who are supporting us and other local businesses as much as they can! It means the world to us.
So far, we are still open, but we have suspended dining room service and are increasing our take-away and grocery options.
During this time, we will at last be accepting take-out orders over the phone! Call the shop at 697-3906 and we will have your food ready for you when you get here.
We are also encouraging customers to shop from our fridge of take-home pasta and sauces. We will be adding new heat-and-serve options (lasagne!), and we are extending our ten-dollar Tuesday to every day.
Staff are diligently cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects, and we are all taking precautions to keep ourselves and our wonderful customers safe, healthy, and well-fed.
Our wildly popular Thursday burger nights resume this week! We’re kicking off the new season on Hallowe’en night with a 50s diner theme and a classic burger (homemade relish, ketchup, and mustard). Call the shop to book! 697-3906.
Port Williams shop: We will close at 6 on Saturday, December 22 and re-open at noon on Thursday, January 3 (and there will be burgers as usual)! We’ll be answering the phones on January 2 to take reservations for burger night.
Wolfville Farmers’ Market: We’ll not be at the market on Saturday, December 29, and Wednesday, December 19 will be our final midweek market.
We hope all our friends and customers (most of you are both!) have a happy and restful holiday.
Our 4th annual “Bounty from the County” dinner will be Sunday, October 21 at 7pm! Seating is limited and we require payment upon reservation ($75 per person; tax and gratuity not included). We can take reservations in person or over the phone at (902) 697-3906.
Mussel nights continue Thursdays until Bounty from the County, and then BURGER NIGHTS resume on November 1!
