Electra Townie 7D Step-Through Women's Bike Equivalent?

Hello All:
We were planning to get my wife an Electra Townie 7D Step-Through Women's Bike this spring. But with the covid-19 pandemic, all stores are closed. Do any of you know of an equivalent that we could mail-order? I'd have no problem with assembly.
Thanks!

Maybe the bike shop will deliver the Townie to you.They can't open their shop but nothing stops them from taking your credit card information over the phone and delivering a bike to your home. I would imagine they would love the business.

Trek is doing free deliveries on ordered bikes.

At least a couple of bike shops here in New York are doing local delivery.

Where in NOVA are you? I don't know for sure about VA, but here in MD, bike shops fall under transportation which is an essential service so they can be open. Most have limits (there are limits on fitting and shopping, you can come only for service or a purchase, many require you buy online and just come to pick it up, and most either have a one customer in the store at a time policy or curbside delivery only) but only a small number have outright closed. Generally, it seems that VA has been less restrictive than MD, so you may want to check with a few dealers to see if they are all closed or just the one or two you checked. If you haven't bought yet (I know you started the thread about a month ago), you can always take a short drive up here to MD to buy (buy online to be sure it is available, and then come pick it up).

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the replies! I was able to purchase her bike through an online store out west. It should arrive on Monday and I'll set it up. Cheers!
