With weekend Provincial Health Orders precluding indoor dining until at least April 19 – a pair of local Chamber of Commerce offices and Community Futures Peace Liard have taken the lead in corralling lists of all restaurants switching to takeout and delivery services.
Tumbler Ridge Chamber executive director Jerrilyn Ernst Kirk says with only a half dozen restaurants in town – food stuffs can be few and far between. Between employment and customers – restaurants touch many in TR. Kirk says the Chamber’s role is more than just reactionary – but proactive.
“We’re on the lookout for grants that our members can apply for, and more.”
In Tumbler Ridge, Kinuseo Café, Woods Diner, the Western Steakhouse by 242 Brew, Dragon Palace, Joe’s Pizza, and Subway are all operating with at least take out services or more.
A similar restaurant list was generated in Chetwynd as well with restaurants updating their availability and services – while the local Chamber has also generated a fun bingo card for residents to support local restaurants. For the entire month of April, visit each Chetwynd’s restaurants, order take-out, and mark it on your card, and the Chetwynd Chamber will choose a winner at the end of the month to win a Shop Local Chetwynd prizepack.
“The Chetwynd Chamber want(s) to encourage everyone to continue supporting our local restaurants however you can; if they offer take out - order take out, if they offer patio service - grab a blanket and some gloves and go sit outside and enjoy the view!”
Chetwynd restaurants open include A&W (drive thru), while Stagecoach , Dragon Palace, Subway, Domino’s Riverhouse, Link’s Pub, Crazy Beanz Bistro, Tim Horton’s (as well as drive thru), Joe’s Pizza, and New Tokyo Sushi are all offering takeout in the carving capital.
