Grass Valley almost looked like it was a normal weekend while the sun was shining and people came out to enjoy the weather and the opportunity to shop in stores and eat at some of their favorite restaurants. Robin Buckman at the Old Town Cafe says they have a few tables available inside, but a number of customers are still taking orders home.
Buckman is happy to be provding service for the community, however, s making ends meet with a reduced seating capacity is a challenge.
Becky Ingram at La Te Da says retail businesses are happy with the additonal foot traffic now that they are alowed to open doors along with continuing curbside business.
Ingram says, because of the closures, La Te Da now has an online presence too.
Dee at Foothill Mercantile says people coming into the shop were in a good mood.
Dee also said that during Phase One of the stay at home orders, there was a dramatic increase in the sale of jigsaw puzzles.
