Dear Valued Guests,
We are continually searching for ways to assist our Senior Guests, those 60 and over, as we deal with the effects of the corona virus (COVID-19). To that end, we are launching our Senior Express Delivery Hotline effective Wednesday 3/25. We will continue this service until the need for it diminishes.
Details of the program are as follows:
