So many small business owners like myself are seeing a hit in their businesses after the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Supporting small businesses during this time is crucial to our economy. Below are some ways to help
1. ORDER ONLINE FOR PICKUP
Many local restaurants and businesses offer order online/pickup in store. This allows for less time in public because you are not waiting around for your items.
2. PURCHASE GIFT CARDS
Many local businesses offer gift cards which can be purchased now and be used at a later time
3. SHOP ONLINE
Some local businesses do offer online checkout and shipping which is a great alternative to going out to the stores.
4. STOCK UP ON ENTERTAINMENT
Now is a great time to stock up on the things you typically don't purchase for yourself. We may be in this for awhile and having something to pamper yourself or entertain the kids can help significantly. Purchase a new candle, some new lotion or bath scrub, maybe a face mask. Stock up on crafts for the kids, books, and other entertainment for the family.
5. SHARE SHARE SHARE
Many small businesses thrive on word of mouth and will do so even more now. Share the businesses you love, comment on their social media, send a friendly note telling them how much you support them.
