We hope everyone is taking care during these uncertain times. As a downtown community our businesses are following mandated protocol and expert recommendations as a result restaurant dining rooms are now closed but take-out and delivery options are available at select locations. Some retailers are still open while some have decided to close or adjust their hours. We encourage you to follow the restaurants and retailers on social media for updates or call ahead to ensure they are open.

It’s the small businesses that feel the immediate effects during these challenging times.

Please be mindful of the protocol for the spread of Covid-19 and stay home if you are not well.

We thank you for your continued support of Downtown Pembroke
