TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson Mayor Regina Romero authorized Tucson restaurants to operate as pop-up grocery stores.

In an order released Tuesday, Romero gave restaurants the temporary authorization to sell packaged food, fresh produce, paper goods, and cleaning supplies to customers without changes to current business licenses.

“Our restaurant community is at the heart of Tucson’s cultural, social, and economic fabric,” Romero said in a statement. “I encourage all Tucsonans to continue rallying around our restaurants by ordering takeout, purchasing gift cards, and now, by visiting them for their grocery needs.”
