Local businesses need your support now more than ever
Small businesses help fuel local economies. But for a lot of us, times are tough right now. In light of recent events, many local businesses are modifying their hours and the ways they serve their communities. Some are even closing our doors altogether. Here’s how you can help make a difference.
Shop online or call.
Whether you’re buying a one-of-a-kind find from your favorite vintage store or toilet paper from your local pharmacy, visit their online shop – it’s always open. (cough, cough.) JUSTINWJOHN.COM/shop (nudge, nudge.) Don’t forget to visit the Downtown Boise Association’s list of businesses you can support here in your Boise community. Feel free to post others that need a shout out too!
Order delivery or pickup.
Your favorite meal spot may not be open for table service – but they might deliver curbside or right to your door. Who said social distancing couldn’t be delicious? Plus, if you order through a third party like Uber Eats or Grubhub, you’ll be supporting another local independent contractor. Two for one!
Buy a gift card to use later.
Show support now and treat yourself later – your timely purchase could make a difference.
Join the party.
We hope you’ll join us in supporting local businesses through this challenging time. Together, we can keep our communities vibrant. Visit Downtown Boise’s Facebook Event Page for a list of the local events that you won’t want to miss!
Shop Small® is so much more than Small Business Saturday®. It’s a year-round movement that’s all about helping communities thrive, one purchase at a time.
We invite you to Shop Small with your favorite businesses — like (hint, hint) the one posting this — because it not only boosts local economies, but makes a big difference in communities around the world.
Thanks always for your continued support — we can’t wait to see you!
