Business Spotlight - August 2020

Business Spotlight - August 2020

With everything going on around us, it is important to stand strong - as individuals and as a community! Check out some of our local businesses below, and consider supporting them if you are able. We must be flexible and creative as we find ways to adapt to a "new normal," and the following businesses are testament to the strength and resiliency in our community. Stay safe, stay well, and let's get through this together. 

Riverwest Co-Op

Due to the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the current pandemic, the Riverwest Co-op and Cafe has chosen to take specific precautions so we can continue to best serve our beloved community. We are learning to adapt to the climate, and will take our time continually assessing our operations to ultimately provide delicious and healthy food, as well as a safe space for all staff and patrons.

The Co-op is still here for your local,organic, and sustainable grocery and household needs - just with some adjustments! Upon entry to the Co-op, we ask all patrons to head to the store bathroom to wash their hands and grab a sanitized basket if needed. We also encourage the "pandemic best practices" of shopping with your eyes not your hands and utilizing our staff to retrieve any bulk items you may need. Credit cards and rounding-up at the register are highly encouraged, but no one with cash will be turned away.

While the cafe remains closed for the time being, the store is open for shopping with the following hours:

Sunday 9am-7pm

Monday 11am-7pm

Tuesday 11am-7pm

Wednesday 11am-7pm

Thursday CLOSED

Friday 11am-7pm

Saturday 9am-7pm

Please note that the first hour of every day is reserved for shoppers that are immunocompromised and/or 60+.

As always, the best way to support the Co-op is through Membership and Volunteerism! Please email or ask how to get more involved as a member and/or volunteer at the register. Keep an eye on our website, facebook, and instagram for the most up-to-date information!

Southwest Funding

Have you heard of an honest, caring Mortgage Broker that has your best interest at heart? Maybe you have, and we are happy to know one too. He was one of our first Members at THE VIBE! Bernard Davis has over 20 years of experience in the Mortgage Lending Industry and approaches his work from the heart. The extra bonus in working with Davis is that he is well educated with a Bachelor of Arts from Concordia University and a Masters of Science from Cardinal Stritch University.

One of Davis’ aims is to break the barriers for families that are used to renting a home and never thought of buying. Speaking of families, he considers his clients as family and treats them well accordingly. By using his abundant experience and education, he is able to bless his clients with knowledge to better prepare them for one of the most important investments in their life – Davis has a great track record of helping people fulfill their dreams of buying a home; hence, he gets most of his business from word-of-mouth.

Davis operates his business as a Mortgage Broker & Branch Manager for Southwest Funding and does not work like a typical bank with limited services. Unlike banks, Davis works odd and unusual hours that are convenient for his clients, answers all questions, and educates people to make a smart decision in their home. He is a full-service lender, provides a variety of funding options, and assists people with improving their credit score. He understands everyone has unique needs and caters well to them. We welcome you to reach-out to Davis, if you have a need or know of someone who does. Cheers from the heart!
