With COVID vaccines being distributed across the state and the warmer weather approaching, people in the state are getting ready to celebrate Easter Sunday. One of those traditions for many is visiting Europol Deli in Ansonia.

Last year, the store was open amid the pandemic, but customers had to call in their orders ahead of time and stay outside for pick up.

This year, 10 customers are allowed in the store at a time with a mask on.

“This year has improved, because we are letting customers inside the store ten at a time, with a mask on of course. And we try to keep the distance inside,” said former owner Maria Kuna.

The Polish deli has a variety of Kielbasas and meats and treats such as Babkas and lamb-shaped cakes.

“It’s so authentic, they’re real. It like real ethnic Polish people. They’re so sweet,” said a customer.

“I like to focus on the risen Christ. I love this time of year. We become new again. And in this pandemic we need that, right?” said another customer.
