Plymouth restaurants try to keep from sinking, remain open

Operating on severely limited carry-out business-depending on customer loyalty to survive, Plymouth’s many restaurant and bar owners, like others in the state, has strictly followed the governor’s Executive Order since March 16, trying to sustain and uphold their investment from financial ruin.

A great majority of these Plymouth area business establishments are still open, hoping for some relief soon.

It’s been over five weeks since Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a temporary order to close all bars and restaurants in the state in order to shut down dine-in services over coronavirus concerns. Less than a week after that shocking edict, the governor extended the mandated closure through April 13. Later, she signed Executive Order 2020-42 on April 9 extending “Stay Home, Stay Safe” through the end of the month, with the warning,

“This doesn’t mean everything will go back to normal on May 1.”

It now appears the governor is poised to make another unpopular decision that won’t help the situation.

According to a Washington Post live interview Tuesday, when asked if her stay home order will be extended, Whitmer replied,

“Some form of an order will continue on.”

Some say if the order was lifted today and proprietors could reopen they would have a difficult time finding workers to return to work that are receiving the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) checks of $600.

Under FPUC, eligible people who collect certain unemployment insurance benefits—including regular unemployment compensation—will get an extra $600 in federal benefits each week through July 31, 2020. In many cases experienced workers, like cooks, who are paid $15 and hour will have to take a pay cut if they return.

Tony Bruscato, Director of the Plymouth Downtown Development Authority (DDA) urges everyone,

“Support Downtown Plymouth businesses as much and often as you can.”

Here’s the latest Plymouth restaurant/food open-for-business list assembled by the DDA.
