Retail & Restaurants Are Back: Bluhawk Businesses Are Reopening Responsibly

We’re all feeling the effects of the global health crisis in different ways. Countless retail stores, restaurants and other businesses were forced to adapt quickly this year in order to keep operations up and running safely and smoothly. 

As many states enter the early phases of reopening, the businesses at Bluhawk have found successful ways to operate while following the recommended safety measures. We applaud them and appreciate their efforts toward establishing new standards and processes for retail during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Adapting to New Standards of Business & Retail During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Cosentino’s Market Continues to Serve the Kansas City Area

As a grocery store and an essential business, Cosentino’s Market hasn’t stopped serving this community since the pandemic began. The Cosentino Family and their team are working very hard, as usual, and we can’t thank them enough for taking every precaution and following all guidelines as recommended by the Kansas Department of Health & Environment (KDHE) and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). 

To better and more safely serve the elderly and immunocompromised members of our community, they have reserved the 7–8 AM hour for those customers to shop stress-free. Otherwise, Cosentino’s store hours are 6 AM–11 PM.

Three Dog Bakery Will Return to Normal Hours

The team at Three Dog Bakery is excited to see their neighbors starting to reopen shop. And they’ve announced that they’ll be returning to their normal store hours on June 1, 2020.

They have been able to avoid shutting down completely by taking every safety precaution for their staff’s health and leaning into the rise of BOPIS, or “buy online, pickup in store.” It’s not a new practice, but it’s easy to see why consumers have been using it a lot lately. This is one of the trends that could be here to stay after the evolution of retail during the COVID-19 pandemic. If it works for your business model, it can’t hurt to try it out.

Restaurants Committed to Serving Clean, Safe Environments

In March, Red Door Grill sought to continue serving the local community by creating a new menu with options that would taste just as great as take-out. And now, Red Door Grill is welcoming guests back for dine-in after months of solely offering curbside pick-up and delivery options. With the health and well-being of their team members and community being the highest priority, they are committed to following all safety measures.
