Batar has unique idea to bank meal, help staff
BATAR, a local independent restaurant on Hwy. 50 W toward Seymour, is launching a gift certificate program called "Support Now, Enjoy Later."
The idea is that when you purchase a gift certificate now, 60 percent of that purchase will go into an employee fund. The fund will be divided equally among all Batar employees. The other 40 percent will be used to help with business expenses.
Then when things get back to normal, co-owner Dick Tracy explains the gift certificate can be used for a dine-in meal.
Just call 812-522-8617 to purchase the certificate. Batar will mail it to the recipient.
Some privately owned restaurants are offering take-out, but Tracy explained that with Batar's out-of-town location, that was not an option. "Support Now, Enjoy Later" is something "we could do to help our staff through these tough times."
Information, call 812-522-8617 or email BatarSeymour @mail.com
Shopping hours for 60+
Both the local Walmart and Jay C Grocery stores have designated special hours for citizens most susceptible to the coronavirus pandemic to shop.
The Jay-C store will welcome senior citizens 60+ and those with compromised immune systems due to disease or other issues to shop from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Walmart will welcome that same group to their store from 6 to 7 a.m. every Tuesday from March 24 through April 28. Its pharmacy will be available at this time as well.
