Bagel Uprising Launches Delivery
As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Del Ray’s local bagel shop, a stalwart of the pandemic era, is expanding its reach – not to sit-down service, but for deliveries instead. The company posted on social media this week “Big news in Bagel Land: We’re finally set up for delivery directly from the BU website! When you’re in the shopping cart, click “change” where you currently see “pick up,” and select “delivery” instead. Please note you can’t pre-order for delivery like you can for pick up. The wheels start turning as soon as you order; we’ve been finding that it usually takes about an hour for delivery orders to arrive.”
