March 2020


Dear Loyal Ratto’s Customers,
As of tomorrow, Ratto’s will be closed for the duration of the virus crisis. We hope that you all stay safe and healthy. May your shelter-in-place be filled with good books, quiet time at home with family, long walks with your dogs, and sunny afternoons in the garden. We can’t wait to reopen our doors to feed our community. Until then, stay safe and healthy.
