HENDERSON (KTNV) — More businesses are joining restaurants in offering curbside pickup and offering choices beyond food. However, there are rules that shops will need to follow to stay open.

"I'm just glad that they lifted this much," said Michele Walker, owner of Imaginations Unlimited.

Walker's embroidery store is in Henderson, and she says she has customers picking up orders and is taking steps to protect herself.

"I'll be taking everything outside. I'll wear my mask outside, and as soon as I come back in, wash my hands," Walker said.

That complies with the governor's directive, requiring face masks. It also says all sales must be made in advance or through contactless payment when possible - Walker says she's already doing that.

"I'm not handling cash, and I'm not handling credit cards. Everything is paid online. So, they can drive up, and I'll give them their things," Walker said.

Both the city of Henderson and Clark County officials say there are no permits required for curbside pickup and delivery. They're simply asking businesses to comply with Sisolak's orders.

Walker says since she's already doing online orders and the transition to curbside pickup has been smooth. However, she's not sure when things will get back to normal.

"It's just going to take time, and I don't see anything getting better for a long time," Walker said.
