Pemberton businesses have been pushing through the tough times caused by COVID-19 and doing what they can to stay open to support the community.

Businesses such as Pemberton IGA, Ma’s and Pa’s and the Pemberton Hotel have remained open, which has led to enough confidence for businesses such as Cafe Brasil to reopen.

While still trading under the current restrictions, Cafe Brasil reopened its doors about a month ago.

“I thought someone had to open earlier in the morning so people could come in for their morning coffee,” supervisor Robyn Fox said.

“It’s going very slowly but increasing daily.

“We’re happy with the restrictions that have been in place because it keeps the community safer.”

Pemberton Hotel co-owner Joe Mazzarolo said while it had been quiet, the business had been offering takeaway meals.

“We’ve been offering it for workers who have been staying here and to the community,” he said.
