Many local restaurants have closed in the wake of COVID-19, the coronavirus, but a number of local restaurants are offering pick up orders and a few have launched delivery service to Claremonters.
Walter’s Restaurant began $5 direct delivery to Claremont residents Monday, and for all orders over $50, delivery is free.
“We are here to provide a safe and clean environment to dine in and take out, seven days a week during our regular hours,” Walter’s management shared online.
In addition to normal strict hand washing and cleaning procedures, Walter’s staff has been educated in the latest CDC and government guidelines and said they have implemented extra precautions to frequently sanitize door handles, tables, counters, kitchen areas, check holders and restrooms.
Walter’s will also offer a special with a kids’ menu item free when you order an equal adult entrée.
To order pick up or delivery, call (909) 624-2779, extension 2.
With the farmer’s market closed until April 12, Uncommon Good at 211 W. Foothill Blvd. will offer locally and organically grown produce six days a week, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“We deliver produce boxes. Only two people touch the produce before you receive it —our farmer and our market manager. Both have excellent health insurance and paid sick days so they do not work if they are sick,” Uncommon Good shared online. “Proceeds from sales support our education program for low-income students. Come see us to protect your health and support our students.”
Wolfe’s Market is offering curbside pick up and food to go, but like most other establishments, has suspended dining in.
Customers can call ahead at (909) 626-8508 or (909) 626-1680 and the Wolfe’s team will have your order ready for pickup or with payment information, they will meet you curbside. Some delivery is available, so call ahead for that information.
Stater Bros has modified its hours to be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day, allowing staff to enough time to restock and clean the stores. There are limits on some products, but all merchandise is being sold at the regular price.
Vons at 550 E. Base Line Rd., including the pharmacy, is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Vons has also put limits on some items. Like Stater Bros, Vons offers online orders for a delivery fee with orders arriving in three days on average.
Trader Joe’s will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. until further notice.
There is no grocery shortage, and state officials caution against hoarding merchandise. For those who are exposed or even infected by coronavirus, the recommended quarantine is 14 days, so keeping groceries or staples for more than that time is simply not necessary.
