BRANSON, Mo. — As the business community only begins to reopen, many locals are wondering how they can celebrate their moms this year. KOLR10 collected information on where you can go, and what you can expect for Mother’s Day this year.
With many dining rooms still closed in Branson, one local restaurant says Mother’s Day is the perfect time to reopen.
I just lost my mother last year, this year. So this is the first year without her. We just want to make the mother’s happy, that’s all.”Bill Kitchen/ Co-Owner of Center Stage Grille and Bar
Branson’s Center Stage Grille and Bar is telling its customers to call ahead and make reservations.
All restaurants can only have up to 25% of their occupant load, according to the guidelines from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
Lindsey Baker, owner of Branson’s Petal Pushers, says the demand is as high as ever despite the pandemic.
“People are not able to get together, they are definitely more popular,” said Baker. “And a lot of the card messages read that. That they hope to see them soon, and it’s unfortunate that they can’t meet them right now.”
Buying flowers wholesale, according to Baker, has been more difficult. Her suppliers are not carrying as many flowers, after being negatively impacted financially during the coronavirus pandemic.
