The pandemic has hurt many over the last few months, which is why it’s more important than ever to support our local businesses.
When you shop local, $68 for every $100 stays in the community.
Here are seven ways to support local this holiday season and all-year round:
-Spend time learning about local businesses. Share these businesses with friends and family and even on your social media sites.
-Love a local business? Write them a review!
-Purchase gifts from local businesses and vendors. Many stores have an online presence whether website or Etsy shop and some are even doing curbside pickup.
-Buy gift cards to gift or use yourself at a later date.
-Use a local print shop for holiday cards.
-Make meals from local ingredients from your neighborhood farmers’ market.
-Don’t want to cook? Order meals from your favorite restaurants.
