Why picking-up picks everyone else up!
As we navigate our way through the reopening of our neighbourhood, the Marda Loop BIA would like to remind everyone what GOOD picking-up vs using delivery services does for our hardworking restaurateurs and businesses.
We get it, it can be easier to order through delivery services, but when you take a nice little drive or a stroll to your favourite haunt to pick-up breakfast, lunch or dinner, it saves that business a hefty cut that they normally pay to the delivery service and puts that much-needed revenue back into their pockets.
In short, when you pick up your meal, you pick up a business!
Almost all of Marda Loop’s food and drink businesses are offering pick-up options as well as gradually re-opening for dine-in. Here’s how you can support moving forward:
- Call ahead and ask (or check their latest social media)! Communicate with your favourite spots to see if they are open.
- Still not interested in being out and about? Ask them if you can pick-up and what they are offering at this time.
- Worried about sanitization? Pick-up options are only touched by restaurant staff, rather than going into a delivery car and being handled by an additional party.
We have compiled a list of restaurants and cafes with details for each – use it to choose your next meal and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting local!
