There are many ways you can support local businesses responsibly. COVID-19 precautions are necessary, but have a disproportionate effect on our local, independents. Please visit the directory below often, as our members will be keeping their offerings up to date. Some services have always been around, and some are brand new - online ordering, delivery, pickup, etc.! (If you're a local business, visit our resources page.) Everyone can support local - here are some ideas:
Give the Gift of Business
Buy a gift card (on the phone or online) that would cover your usual spend over the coming weeks. Then spend the gift cards later, or give them as gifts to people who haven't visited before.
Buy Now, Pick Up Later
If you had planned on purchasing an item, give the business a call. Pay for it now and have them set it aside for later pickup.
Keep Up Your Memberships
If you have a membership to a gym, class, studio, etc. keep it going. Many small businesses count on that constant support to keep their doors open so they can be there when you come back.
For restaurants and for retail! Many of our local independents are offering this service.
