Farm Fresh Meats back open after closing as safety measure
All employees test negative at the beloved Robertsdale market
Farm Fresh Meats, a Childress family institution and good neighbor in Robertsdale since 1976, temporarily closed its doors from June 10-16 to allow its employees to be tested for the coronavirus after one one of its employees came into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
“The market will be professionally cleaned and sanitized while employees await the results of their tests,’’ company owners posted on Facebook earlier this month. “This is the first time in over 43 years that we have had to close the shop for an extended period of time. We are heartbroken but we know that this is 100 percent the right thing to do for everyone’s sake.
Farm Fresh later reported that all of its employees tested negative for COVID-19 and it was back open for business as uusal.
“We are so thankful for each and every one of our wonderful customers that have shown us the utmost support during this extremely difficult time,’’ the company posted on June 15. “Y’all made us feel so loved and appreciated and we can’t thank you enough for that! As you can see, we are having our building professionally cleaned and sanitized by the professionals at SERVPRO today so; you can rest easy knowing that our building is super clean and germ free! Excited is an understatement. We seriously can’t wait to get back to “normal.” (Whatever that means… haha!) Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for all of your support. We love you all.’’
