• Faith Morledge-Realtor with Sprinkman Real Estate: Response regarding essential business. Yes as realtors we are an essential business. We will continue to do our business utilizing 3D imaging in addition to the traditional photos for listings. Buyers will be able to virtually walk through the home. We also are offering video/FT tours for our buyers. In-person showings are done with extreme caution to protect both buyers and sellers. Our hours, always here to assist.

    Zoe’s Pizzeria is considered essential and still operation under normal business hours.
    We are trying to limit the number of customers coming into the store by offering Curbside Pickup . For Delivery we are offering standard delivery or Contactless Delivery, where we ring the doorbell and leave your food outside the front door. Hand sanitizer and wipes are available for any Customers coming into the store. We have temporarily suspended our Lunch time offering of “pizza by the slice”. Alternatively we are now offering a 10” thin crust pizza available from 10:30am-2:30pm, 7 days a week. 
    To keep both our employees and customers safe, employees will be required to check their temperature at the start of every shift and report it to a manager. We are also continually sanitizing all phones, handles, computer stations, door knobs, equipment etc..throughout the day and in between usage by employees. Our delivery drivers are sanitizing the interior of the cars at the start of each shift as well as sanitizing their hands in between each delivery and every time they enter the store. These measures are in addition to the normal sanitizing and cleaning we do each day as well as washing our hands multiple times all day long.

    Carl F. Statz & Sons: We are an essential business in Agriculture.  We have shortened out hours to 8am to 5pm Mon- Fri and 8am til noon on Saturday. We only let people in the front entrance of our building and meet them at door to keep distance.  We are offering pick up service and customers can also just drop off equipment and call us for service too. 
    Joy Meyer of US Cellular:  We are considered essential and are still open for business with shortened hours 10-5 Mon-Sat. Closed on Sunday. We do offer curb side service so that customers won’t need to enter the store, merely call in with their needs from the parking lot. Also we’re encouraging payments be called into customer service rather than dropped at the store.

    In store, we have every other sales desk open for appropriate social distancing and a maximum of 10 people on site at all times. Quality Cellular has benefits and payment arrangements with our associates with the shortened hours. With the lack of traffic will come a lack of commissions for our employees but we’ve worked hard at our warehouse over the past 2 weeks to make sure we are taking care of those on the front line. 

    For quarantine, we are running a Charging Special of BOGO 50% off (equal or lesser value) which can be nice during these times of increased communication and app usage.

    Chad Beery of Redbox+: Redbox+ is deemed essential as we are directly tied to the construction industry. In addition, since we haul waste (construction and demolition (C&D), municipal solid waste (MSW) and human waste from our portable toilets (septage)), we are essential too. We can operate 24/7 and can do emergency service if needed (for example, restoration companies may need a dumpster immediately after a water loss, storm, or other disaster regardless if it's day or night).
