While doors to our beloved shops and restaurants may be shut at the moment, we can still distance socially while supporting locally. Here are a few simple ways to help your favorite small business.

Purchasing gift cards is a great way to support your favorite small businesses financially now, and get back in store to redeem when their doors reopen.

Think of the times you've been thankful for the people who leave trusted reviews of how great a product or service is as it led you to a quality purchase. You can be that beacon of light to others as well!

Spread the good news of how amazing your favorite small businesses are by typing up simple, sweet words to share with the world online. You can then copy and paste your review to cover multiple platforms: Google, Yelp, The Knot, Facebook, etc.

Put your social media to good use by showing small businesses some love! One of the easiest ways to lift up small businesses is to interact with their posts by liking, commenting, and sharing. The owners will appreciate your online support! 

Praise hands for technology, right?! The power of the world wide web allows for simple shopping online. That boutique you're aching to visit may be offering online deals!

Rather than being completely out of commission, the restaurants you're craving may offer online or call-in orders where you can pick up your delicious grub or even have it delivered straight to your door!
