From your corner bodega to family restaurants and all the little shops that give our communities so much character, there’s a ton of ways you can support your local businesses. And right now, they need you more than ever! Instead of shopping at big box stores, here are four simple ways you can show your support.
1. Spread the word on social media
Give them a free boost of publicity by posting about them on social media, so all your friends and family know it’s worth a visit!
2. Do some early holiday shopping
The holidays may seem far away, but now is the best time to cross a few people off your list with great gifts from local businesses who will appreciate your support. On top of helping them thrive, you’ll thank yourself come December for being ahead of the game!
3. Talk to the owners
Entrepreneurs pour their hearts and souls into their businesses, and they always make time for their regulars. Get to know the people behind your favorite shops and eateries and ask them if there’s any unique way you can show your support.
4. Eat local
It should come as no surprise that one of our favorite ways to support local businesses is by eating some great food! Family-run restaurants need your hungry help, so don’t be afraid to treat yourself to an extra night of take-out or celebratory dinner on the town
