Ways for Customers to Support
Small Businesses During COVID-19

1

Buy Gift Cards

This puts immediate cash into the local businesses that you frequent today while allowing to use later. 

2

Instead ask for credit to apply to future purchases. When small businesses provide a full refund they give back their cost of goods sold along with their profit. 

AVOID REFUNDS

3

Many local businesses are offering new subscriptions services where they mail you items over time or deliver their services online (fitness class or art lessons via webcast).

BUY LOCAL

4

ORDER IN

If still recommended by the CDC, support local eateries by calling in an order and paying over the phone. 

5

Support local businesses and local employees you love by making donations to campaigns supporting local businesses and/or their employees particularly those in hospitality, entertainment, and arts industry.
