SOMVERILLE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The city of Somerville has allowed restaurants to start selling groceries. It’s a move that’s meant to help restaurants that may be struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.
The city issued the order over the weekend that allows the restaurants to offer grocery pick-up and delivery.
Among the restaurants participating is Earl’s Kitchen and Bar at Assembly Row. Regional Director Lynn MacDonald said it’s a good alternative to grocery stores that may have long lines or cleared shelves.
“We’ve turned into this one-stop shop where you could pick up your grocery packs, toilet paper, you can pick up a cooking kit, and then as well as your favorite Earl’s items to take home and have with your family,” MacDonald said.
