There´s a whole lot of female-led fabulousness on the Style Beyond Age blog today, we´re sharing 5 ways that you can support small businesses during the time of Covid.

 

Support Small Businesses during Covid 

 

As the country starts to relax its Covid-19 precautions, we emerge into a different world. No matter where you are, I’m sure that you feel and see a change. Everything from the way we socialize, shop, eat, and engage is evolving. 

 

As we transition into this “new normal,” have you noticed that some of your go-to retailers haven’t come back or are packing up their storefronts for good? Some national retailers haven’t re-opened their doors yet, and if they have, they are only offering limited services or curbside pickups.

Support Small Businesses 

 

I see my local boutique owners as brave because these are stark and scary times for small businesses. Women often run most of these businesses that we admire and depend on as a community. 

And as you know, here at Style Beyond Age, we LOVE to support our fellow female entrepreneurs. I’ve made a list of my favorite shops that you can patronize today and five ways to help support small businesses during these transitional times! 

5 Ways you can Support Small Businesses During Covid

(and Beyond)

 

1 – Shop local – online

Our communities need us now more than ever. Online shopping is convenient and can be done right from the comfort of your couch! Most, if not all, small business retailers have websites offering their products with a click of your mouse that can be delivered right to your door. Honestly, I love this way of shopping. I get just what I need, and it is available for pickup within the hour.

 

2 – Purchase gift cards

Consider buying gift cards for the businesses you visit most often to use later when they are officially up and running again.

 

 

3 – Order takeout

Can’t wait until you can eat your favorite meals from your favorite local restaurants? Many are keeping things going by offering meals to go, and some are even providing free delivery. This is a great way to keep money going into the local community while enjoying all your favorite dishes.

 

 

4 – Increase the tip amount

Don’t forget, servers and delivery people will also be feeling the decrease in business, and many of them survive on the tips they’re now missing. If you’re ordering takeout or delivery, consider giving a little more than usual when tipping. 

 

 

5 – Practice patience

We’re all in this together. Don’t forget that many small businesses are most likely working with a skeleton crew, so you might have to wait a little longer for your delivery to arrive or for items to become available to purchase.
