The Days of COVID-19

March 28, 2020

These are strange times we're living in. We have been granted permission by the State to remain open, so we are taking the opportunity to continue to serve our community. It feels strange to say so, but we are encouraging you to stay home. Although we'd love to see you smiling, familiar faces, we understand this is not business as usual. We are here if you need us for curbside or doorstep delivery, and have had several people take us up on that service. We are willing to deliver throughout our valley -- from Brewster to the Wenatchee area, just give us a call and we will set it up. We are taking the time to invest in our business... Read more

Ready, Set, Grill!

April 11, 2019

The sun is out, and that means we're all thinking about outdoor living again! Is your grill ready for the season? We've got a short checklist to make sure you're ready before you head outside for the first BBQ of the season. 1. Clean it! It's been a long winter without the bbq for some of us, but before you throw those steaks on the grill, make sure those grill grates are clean. It's important to have a good grill brush. We recommend using one without the small wire bristles that can break off and end up in your food. Try a bristle free bbq brush this season to eliminate that concern. Once it's clean, keep it that way! Try... Read more
