Well it has been quite a week. But if you are going to have to function as a community in a global pandemic and provincial state of emergency, Bowen is the place to be. We are so grateful to our customers who have been so supportive and co-operative and patient as we have scrambled to respond to the new daily realities. And the Ruddy staff are showing up to the front lines with humour and great care, ready to help however they can. We are open pretty much as usual, except for changing the CAFE HOURS to 9 to 5 every day (closing a bit earlier), and taking all of the seating outside. We have launched our adventure of emailed-in and home delivered orders with Artisan Express for folks in quarantine of isolation. So far the store is well stocked and able to meet most requests. Stay tuned.....
