From the store to your front door

Gresham resident Camilla Gray recently acquired territory rights to provide personal grocery shopping and home delivery services through WeGoShop.com.

Gray’s business, Eastside Shopper, is a resurrection of the good old days when grocery stores provided home delivery. After customers place an order online, personal shoppers fill orders with specified items from the customers’ preferred supermarket or warehouse store. Delivery can be scheduled up to seven days in advance.

Clinic moves to new location

Dr. Robert Ramsey and his staff at Gresham Family Chiropractic recently spent the weekend moving from their Gresham Town Fair location to a larger facility at 575 N.E. Second St.

“Boy, was it a task!” said Veronica Rickerd, chiropractic outreach assistant to Ramsey. “It was well worth it, though. We are now able to better help our patients in a less crowded space and have more room for the doctor and staff to serve our patients by teaching/informing proper spinal care.”

The clinic provides chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, mechanical traction, rehabilitative exercises and more.
