COVID-19: Our Story

Washington State’s stay-at-home order has caused many businesses to temporarily close, or dramatically change their operation in order to curtail the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our community healthy. The stay-at-home order has affected the businesses inside of Pybus Public Market in varying ways, but our merchants agree that the saddest part about this time is not seeing our community buzzing through the building. The Pybus concourse, the place “Where Community Meets,” has been closed since the stay-at-home order went into effect and it’s just not the same. The businesses at Pybus stand together and support each other so that we can all make it through this. We at Pybus Market would like to thank the community for all the support that has been shown to our local businesses during this challenging time.

As the businesses of Pybus Public Market continue to face the challenges of COVID-19, Pybus Foundation remains committed to supporting those businesses, helping them to emerge from the pandemic intact. Pybus Foundation is launching its first ever monthly gift program, an easy way for individuals, families, businesses, groups and clubs to support the work of Pybus Foundation. Become a Pybus Partner with a minimum gift of $25 a month. Your support of the Foundation helps offset rent and other expenses so our businesses can survive and be here when we all get to return to the market we love.  Each gift will help us to preserve the community gathering place that Pybus has become.
