College graduation, Mother’s Day, boosting local commerce

According to a survey by National Retail Federation, shoppers are expected to spend about $220 on Mother’s Day, a nearly 8% increase over 2020 and the highest since the survey began. Off-camera, two other Raleigh restaurants told ABC11 that they have already maxed out on their reservations. “We’re starting to see numbers come back that we had seen two years ago,” said Eliza Eisenhardt, Manager of Operations at DECO Raleigh.

As they navigate capacity limits on indoor dining, May highlighted outdoor availability. “I see it on people’s faces when they’re coming. You can tell if they’re hesitant to come or not. And we’re playing each person by ear to make sure that they get the comfortable experience,” May said, and she added that her entire staff is vaccinated.

“We still have a lot of outside tables, more than (we had) pre-COVID,” May said. Unlike previous years, May said they are not taking reservations, instead, they are relying solely on walk-in traffic. For some people, it may be the first time returning to a restaurant since the beginning of the pandemic.

“Now that we’re back open, we’re getting new items back in from makers, making sure that we’re very robust, so when people do come in they’re finding exactly what they need,” Eisenhardt explained, adding Mother’s Day is their second-busiest stretch of the year. For Kathryn Shah, Mother’s Day is special for a number of reasons. Last year, they were forced to build an online sales system because of the pandemic.

“Handmade items typically have a little extra something, a little extra love to them. And I think that’s why a lot of mothers tend to like DECO Raleigh,” Eisenhardt noted. The gift shop works with local artists on a variety of products.
