During social distancing, it’s now more important than ever for us to feel a part of our community. Even though we’ve not been able to gather in person, we have found connection and meaning in re-connecting with longtime friends, helping our neighbors, and supporting local businesses. And these local businesses need your support now more than ever. With the economy on uneasy standing, finding ways to support the mom and pop businesses in your town helps boost not only your local economy, but also saves local jobs.

How Can You Support Local Businesses?

Eat Local

Many restaurants are now offering takeout or curbside pickup. You can go online or call your favorite local restaurant to order your meal and take it home for dinner and a movie night! Are you tired after a long day of working remotely and helping your kids with homeschooling? No problem, your local restaurants might even deliver to your door. Restaurants have been hard hit during COVID-19, needing to lay off workers or dramatically reduce hours. So by ordering takeout from your local restaurant, you’re helping to ensure that your favorite place to get those to-die-for tacos is open and ready when your state opens up again.

Shop Local

While Amazon.com is undoubtedly convenient to use, your local shops need your support. Many stores are offering curbside pickup for goods, which means you won’t have to wait a week for your order to be mailed to you. Additionally, many local shops are also offering free shipping, meaning you won’t have to worry about leaving the house after all.
