No, your eyes are not deceiving you…
Stever’s now has a website where you can order our candy online!
The world is changing every day, and to keep a business going during these challenging times we have to change right along with it. We hope you will take your time and look around on our website. It has been weeks in the making as we started from scratch to create a Stever’s online store.
They say timing is everything and we agree with that! This website would not be at all possible without the talents of one of our employees. She has been working at the shop for two full years while going to college in the evenings, which means that at some point, sadly, she will leave us to move on. But she’s with us now and if it was not for Ellie there is no way we would’ve been able to get this website created from start to finish! While we are good at making delicious candies, we’re not so good at all things computer related. So thank you Ellie, for all your hard work and ideas, not to mention support. We could not have done it without you.
You may be wondering if we will be closing this July the answer is yes we will. Since there is no Park Avenue festival this year, we will be re-opening on Monday August 3rd. We are hopeful that things will have progressed enough that we feel we can open the shop up again to customers. We will be implementing safety protocol to keep not only our customers safe but our staff and ourselves as well. We all need to be supportive and kind to each other in the weeks and months ahead, and if that means wearing a mask and using hand sanitizer then so be it.
We would be remiss if we did not thank the good people of Rochester and surrounding communities for all of their support during these unprecedented times. Coronavirus could not have come at a worse time for us as it was just a few weeks before our very biggest holiday. We are so grateful to all of the people who were able to place orders either by phone or email during Easter and in the weeks after. We understand that we are luckier than many businesses in our area as we were able to keep selling our candy and offer curbside pick up. Our hearts go out to all the businesses in our community that are still closed. We would like to tell them all to not lose heart as WE know the people of Rochester will be right there to support them when they open back up again.
All our best to you and yours, Stever’s & Staff
