Find an up-to-date list of restaurants and small businesses who have modified their operations to continue to serve our community.

 

 

 

Many small businesses are suffering tremendously as a result of the COVID-19 situation. With many people staying at home and practicing social distancing, some businesses have been forced to close their doors completely until further notice. However, some of our local businesses, including restaurants and shops, have adapted to the changes and are dedicated to serve our community in safe, healthy ways.

 

If you are able, show your support for our wonderful restaurants by ordering take-out or delivery. Local breweries are even offering beer delivery and curbside pickup options, so that you can still enjoy your favorite local brew from home!

 

 

 

If you find yourself spending more time at home, consider browsing the online shops of our unique local businesses. Some brick and mortar locations remain open (10 person limit, with proper social distancing) and ready to help you find what you're looking for in person. 

 

 

 

Other ways to support your favorite small businesses:

Buy gift cards now to boost businesses' cash flow and use them later, when life gets back to normal.

 

Like, comment, or share posts on social media. Let business owners know that you are thinking about them by increasing your engagement to build awareness for your favorite brands. Reach out to business owners; tell them that you miss them, and can't wait until you are able to shop or dine in-house again!
