Local Businesses Are Stepping Up For The Treasure Valley
Last week, we asked our listeners to tell us about some small businesses in the Treasure Valley that have gone the extra mile to give great service or do something great for the community at this strange time. Plenty of businesses are doing curbside pickup and delivery and we appreciate that very much, but these businesses are doing even more:
The Original Sunrise Café has completely changed their business during this time. Sure, they’ll still make food for pickup or delivery, but now they’re even delivering groceries! In an effort to help the community and also keep their employees working, they are offering delivery or pickup orders for all kinds of items that are flying off the shelves at the stores. They even have incentives when you spend $50 or $100.
Sofia’s Greek Bistro in Garden City is offering free food to kids who are dependent on the school system for their meals and they’ve now extended that program to college kids who may also need assistance. Andrade’s and the Copper Keg in Boise are also offering free lunches to kids that rely on the school system for food.
The Angry Easel in Meridian does paint parties, but now they’ve gone online! You can purchase a kit from them outside their 3rd Street studio, then take the class online.
Cheeky’s in New Plymouth are stepping up for their employees. They’re helping with child care, giving flexible schedules, even helping with food for their families when they need it. They have sales happening now on their boutique website.
Multiple people have told us about the incredible service at Royal Coffee Company in the Village at Meridian and that they are doing everything to put smiles on the faces of their customers and their employees.
