Unfortunately not all businesses have positively endured these hard-hitting times. It is important that we keep in mind that small businesses need our help. Thankfully, there are multiple ways you can help support your favorite small business this holiday season.
Buy A Gift Card
If you’re looking for gifts from your loved ones this holiday season, consider purchasing a gift card or two from local businesses. Many small businesses, such as restaurants, clothing boutiques, and even hair and nail salons, offer gift cards and certificates!
These gifts are a great and effective way to bring money to small businesses and fill up your family’s stockings!
Shop Local Online
Buying from local retailers is easier than going to crowded department stores. Now, most local shops have a website where you can make purchases of their goods online and even find some great sales!
Check out the sites of your favorite local retailers and see what deals they have to offer you!
Enroll In Virtual Classes
Many local businesses are currently offering socially distanced classes online, allowing them to draw in more business than ever before. Search for some classes with a local instructor through an online platform or find a fun and productive workshop to participate in.
With purchasing a new online class for your family and friends to participate in you will be able to support businesses in the best way possible and be able to learn new skills along the way!
One of the industries that has been hit the hardest during the COVID-19 pandemic has been restaurants, many of which are locally owned. Restaurants and even local bars offer take-out and delivery straight to your doorstep, in order to keep their businesses up and running.
You don’t have to dine in to support your favorite local diner. Instead, order your favorite dishes to pick-up or have delivered right to your home, just in time for the holidays!
Show your support for your local businesses by purchasing all of your holiday needs from them! With help, your community will be thriving better than ever, before you know it!
