We got to stay home, but we need to get essential items and we still want to support locally. How on earth do we do that anyway?
Lebanon’s Demeter’s Common has the answer for that. Demeter’s Common is located at 228 West Main St. Suite E, right off the square. It’s a lifestyle grocery store that supports small farmers and makers. Sounds awesome, right? Demeter’s Common has quite the assortment of groceries, organic, local, and fresh. Not limited to just that, they have a lot of other products as well. They carry the cutest tea towels and coffee/tea mugs, candles, bath salts and fresh flowers, just to name a few.
But with COVID-19 pandemic, Demeter’s Common must change up how they do things. They are still getting in deliveries and providing fresh local groceries but moving to offering curbside service only. They are open for curbside 10-3pm Thursday-Saturday. Ordering curbside service is simple, and they are determined to help you find everything you need. Before you place an order, you can hop onto their Facebook page where they are updating daily their list of new items that have been delivered. You can call to place an order, you can also message them over Facebook, email or text. They are constantly checking messages and emails to fulfill your order quickly. If they’re out of a product that you’re looking for, they will try to offer up a suggestion for a good replacement or will let you know when that item will be restocked. Once you get your order in, there are several contactless ways to pay, they can take cards over the phone or through Venmo. And then once everything is together, they can bring the items right out to your car. Which is great because not only do you not have to get out of the car, you can still wear your pajama pants without anyone noticing.
