3 Ways to Support Local Businesses 

July 01, 2020

While the world has slowed down to comply with restrictions and guidelines to keep our neighbors safe, our small businesses are seriously hurting. Less in-person foot traffic has created uncertainty for our local business owners as most small operations don’t have the cash reserves to sustain themselves during turbulent times, unlike larger retailers and corporations. We all have a spot or two we love to frequent. Now, our patronage is more important than ever to help our neighborhood favorites stay afloat. Here are three ways you can continue to support small businesses in your community. 

 

Purchase Gift Cards  

The best thing about gift cards or certificates is that you don’t have to use them right away, but the company you purchase from sees the funds immediately! Get your friend, coworker, spouse, parent, or kid a gift card for their favorite business. Better yet, plan a future date night with gift cards from multiple places for an activity, dinner, dessert, and an evening coffee. Gift cards are one of the easiest ways to spread the love! 

 

Social Media Shoutout 

Liking, sharing, commenting, and shouting out your favorite places is a great way to raise awareness to others of local businesses who need community support. Take a shameless photo of your iced coffee, upload it to social media, tag the business, and tell your friends how awesome it is! Don’t forget to mention the friendly and accommodating staff who serve you with a smile. Another way you can help is by leaving positive reviews on Facebook, Google, Bite Squad, and any other platform you use for pickup or delivery. This lets others know how great they are and that their doors are open! 

 

Shop Small Online  

Before you head to Amazon, take a few minutes to see what your local businesses have to offer. Searching for a great gift? Thinking of swapping out some of your usual products? Buy local! Many artists, boutiques, and coffee shops are online and offer shipping options so you can shop from the comfort of your own home. Plus, many businesses with online shops will allow you to use their gift cards for online purchases!
