Supporting Local Business

Seven Simple Ways You Can Support Businesses and Shop Local Now

  • Buy a Gift Card – Support service based businesses by purchasing a gift card now to use later. Your investment can help the business sustain themselves during this time and you’ll be able to treat yourself later!
  • Buy Now, Pick Up Later – Support product based businesses by purchasing an item now to be picked up later. Many local restaurants are currently offering take-out or curbside pick up.
  • Tip & Say Thank You – Many employees are continuing to work with the public. Let them know you appreciate their hard work by tipping appropriately and remembering to say thank you.
  • Continue Your Membership or Subscription – Many organizations rely on membership or subscription based due. Support businesses by continuing these services.
  • Engage Online – Support local businesses by engaging with their online content. Spread encouragement by posting a positive comment, liking a post, and sharing content.
  • Talk to a Business Owner – Reach out to a local business owner and ask what you can do to support them at this time. Let them know they’re not alone.
  • Stay Positive – Remember that we are a community and we are all in this together! Rather than spreading fear, seek opportunities to lend a helping hand and spread a positive message.
