With the order to close bars and restrict restaurants to pickup and delivery, local businesses are scrambling to change their services.



“We just have to innovate, and I know they’re all innovative people,” said Corynne Rich, a small business consultant who works with 19th Street businesses in the Heights. “We need to let people know how they can support their local businesses during this time.”

These are some of the businesses that got ahead of the March 16 decision to suspend bar and restaurant operations throughout Harris County. Find a list of Bellaire, Meyerland, West University businesses here.
