Supporting Local Businesses During COVID-19
Here are a range of ways to support local businesses:
- Many restaurants are offering delivery and pickup, but check for delivery options at places other than restaurants. Your local toy store, flower shop, bookstore or clothing boutique may not have their usual storefront, but many are providing delivery or curb side pickup.
- Buy gift cards or credit for later from your favourite restaurants, stores, hair salons, spas, childcare providers and hardware stores.
- Share local restaurant delivery menus on your social media pages or simply follow, like, share and comment on their own social media platforms.
- A positive review of a local business can have a huge impact at the moment. Even if it’s from a time before lockdown a thought costs nothing but can mean the world to these business owners and employees doing it incredibly tough at the moment.
