A special thank-you to the businesses on St. George Island that remained open and provided essential services to the full-time residents and property owners on St. George Island. These businesses could have closed and laid off employees, but instead decided to remain open, adapt to the new requirements, and provide meals to-go, delivery of groceries and other items, to housebound residents.

The following are the businesses that stayed the course and took care of us:

Paddy’s Raw Bar, Sparks and Sons’ Island Grocery, Piggly Wiggly Xpress, Harry A’s, Journeys of St. George Island, Island Dog Beach and Surf Shop, Food Truck – SGI, Sometimes It’s Hotter, BJ’s Pizza & Subs, Blue Parrot Oceanfront Café, The Beach Pit, St. George Cantina, Express Lane and Subway.

Thank you and keep up the good work.

Peter Ritch
