RAVENNA, Ohio — If you’re looking to stock up on fruits, vegetables and some dairy products but are practicing social distancing, a family-owned Portage County wholesale distributor has you covered.
Sirna & Sons Produce normally sells to restaurants, but has seen a bit of a decline in business since Governor Mike DeWine’s restrictions on restaurant dining rooms. The company decided to help the public by offering their items at wholesale prices.
“We have plenty in stock, and want to do our part in helping the community eat healthy while staying safe,” the company said in a Facebook post.
You can get items like a 5 lb. bag of salad mix for $2, a gallon of 2% or chocolate milk for $2, and 1 lb. of salted or unsalted butter for $3.
“The virus has drastically changed with the restaurants strictly doing takeout,” Sirna & Sons Vice President Vince Sirna said in a phone call. “This way, we can keep more of our staff moving, move more of our product and provide a good value to people in our area.”
To honor social distancing recommendations, customers can just pull up around the back of the distribution center, call, and someone will load the items into your car. Employees are taking every precaution and will wear gloves during the pickup.
Sirna and Sons says it is accepting cash on site, or you can pay with your credit card when you call prior to pickup.
The pickup is available Monday through Friday, 10am to 3pm. Sirna and Sons is located at 7176 State Route 88 in Ravenna, Ohio. Call Sirna and Sons at (330) 298-2222 for more information.
