BUSINESS UPDATES: West Seattle Runner; WS Landscape and Stone Supply

Two more business updates this morning. First, from longtime WSB sponsor West Seattle Runner‘s proprietors Tim and Lori McConnell:

We will be here in the store M-F from 10-4, taking orders via phone, text, email and Facebook messenger. We need to be here those hours to accept deliveries and set up shipping. We are going to be taking Sat and Sun off, and we may answer some emails, but we are trying to set up some routine where we don’t work every day.

We will be doing no-contact deliveries of all IN-STOCK ORDERS M-F between 4:30 and 6:00. We will also set up vendor direct shipping of any item we do not have in stock.

Text: 206-228-0019
Call: 206-938-0545

We do not currently have a web-store (under construction), but we hope to have one up very soon. As this operation is currently just Lori and I, we appreciate everyone’s support and patience as we try to figure out the best way to navigate this business challenge.

For those that have already purchased from us since “Stay Home, Stay Safe,” we really appreciate it, everything helps. For those looking to purchase now, know we will do our best to make shoe suggestions over the phone, and are extending our return policy to 45 days. And any order size is welcome, we are not limiting it to shoes or more, if you need 4 gels, we’ll get you 4 gels. We want to continue to service our community through this ordeal – we were here before all this, and we will be here after this, doing our best for our customers and friends.

And from West Seattle Landscape and Stone Supply proprietor Jeff Detweiler:

A lot of people are looking for garden soils right now, and we are one of the only places delivering it in West Seattle. I do everything by email and phone, so there’s no in-person contact with customers, and I am still charging the same delivery rates and soil prices as normal.

Best way to contact is by email as I’m kind of swamped, Our Super veggie soil, compost, two-way soil, medium bark, and NW Mulch (bark/compost mix) are all available for delivery Monday through Friday. Phone is still 206-763-7625, but again, email’s best right now. There’s no pickup of materials available, as we are delivery-only.

Got a business update? Email – thank you!

    While I am happy there is a demand for soil, is this an essential service ??

    Vegetable and fruit garden season. Social distancing and local.

      I have coworkers that are going to gardening to lessen their dependence on stores for their produce and herbs. there are a lot of people that can’t access grocery stores before their fresh foods are wiped out.

    Nothing wrong with a private victory garden these days if you have the land for it. It is a very primal instinct to secure your family’s food needs in a time of crisis. I’m hearing of more vegetable plots going in than ever before. If you can plant safely, then by all means do. It is a joy to supplement your diet with healthy food you have grown yourself. And gardens help communicate the family value of healthy eating to children, even if they don’t produce enough to provide real sustenance.

    I noticed there are updated temporary hours for The Birdhouse on their website, to update the main restaurant list you are keeping: 8am-1pm weekdays and weekends. Also, has anyone in the community heard from Cafe Osita? Their last Facebook update was a month ago.

      Thanks, we are checking websites/social media today in search of updates, it’s mega-time-consuming so help appreciated.

Sorry, comment time is over.
