City offers curbside pickup signs to downtown businesses
The city of South Bend and Downtown South Bend are offering curbside pickup signs for businesses and restaurants still operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The signs identify 10-minute parking spaces for picking up food or items from downtown businesses.
“We hope these signs help downtown businesses in our new social distancing environment,” said Mayor James Mueller. “It’s important that we innovate as we persevere together through these difficult times.”
"These signs may seem like a small thing, but they represent more opportunities for downtown restaurants to serve more customers safely and effectively,” said Downtown South Bend executive director Milt Lee.
Downtown restaurants interested in getting a sign can contact Amy Paul with Downtown South Bend.
