March 26, 2020 (Lewisville, TX) - Retailers in the Castle Hills Village Shops have quickly adapted their business models to continue serving the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Village Shops, located in the master-planned Castle Hills community in Lewisville, is a neighborhood destination with a variety of eateries, retail shops and neighborhood conveniences. It serves as a gathering place for morning coffee, lunch with friends and family dinners as well as outdoor activity, with water features that are popular with kids and pets.
Restaurants in the Village Shops are now offering delivery that includes both food and alcoholic beverages; call ahead orders with curbside pick-up; and special take-out menus. Many have communicated with diners about an increased cleaning protocol. Non-restaurant retailers are also adapting by offering special services.
"The local restaurants in the Village Shops have stepped up their options for us. I like the idea of supporting the local restaurants here. They have been doing an amazing job for a long time. Let's show them some love," said Castle Hills resident Adam Oliver.
"PI.E 3.14 Everyday Eatery & T.B.D. Kitchen both were built as restaurants for a community," said Sean Conner, owner/manager. "We currently have pulled together as a restaurant family and are tackling the obstacles presented by this situation one at a time. I could not be more proud of the crew as they are all so creative, hard-working and continue to serve all of our patrons. We do not know how long this will last but what we do know is we will show up and continue to serve our community in every capacity available to us."
"No words can express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the overwhelming support and kindness the community has shown our staff. It has been great to see the community come together supporting not only The Grind, but all of the local businesses in the area," said Robert Hede, The Grind Burger Bar Castle Hills partner.
