Best Curbside Retail Service

Front-line workers really deserve another round of applause. To keep locals safe and sound, many local businesses launched curbside retail options to allow safe pickup. No one led the charge quite like Festival Foods (multiple Chippewa Valley locations) with their friendly employees and great groceries. Next up was The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire), which hopped to it to help beer lovers. The Local Store (205 N. Dewey St., Eau Claire) took third place, delivering everything from gift baskets and beer advent calendars to your car. –Rebecca Mennecke
