HERMON – A local company is opening the doors to its warehouse in an effort to sell off any products it can, after business was impacted by the spread of coronavirus.
New England Cupboard, based in Hermon, manufactures dry baking goods, including mixes for pancakes, muffins, scones, spices and dips — even dog treats.
The products, including Bakewell Cream, are normally available in stores.
But due to the coronavirus outbreak, orders have come to a halt, and now the owner says he’s been forced to temporarily layoff workers.
As a result, he’s offering customers a chance to buy products directly from him.
“I‘m going to try to be doing some open houses here,” said owner Jim Collins. “People can come in, they can call me ahead of time, they can place an order, I can do curbside once they get here, bring it out to them, stay as safe as possible and keep our distance.”
Next week, Collins says he’ll be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
