Real talk: if we do not patron our local Seacoast businesses, we will lose them.
This is a trying time and a time to ask ourselves, “how can we support each other?” A simple answer?
When possible, SHOP LOCAL.
Here is an easy list of ways to support Seacoast businesses while self-distancing:
- Buy a Gift Card: www.seacoastgiftcards.com An easy way to support Seacoast businesses while self-distancing. Simply follow the links in this post, purchase a gift card to a local business, and save it for when we can all gather together again! Thanks to City Councilor Deaglan McEchearn for this!
- Consider especially the Seacoast Indoor Play Places who have had to close.
- Shop Online: Several of our Seacoast businesses already have an online presence for selling their products!
- Shop their Social Media Pages: Many boutiques are posting their inventory online so you can shop from your phone.
- Pick up curbside: Most businesses and restaurants will offer this service! Just call, tell them what you’d like and pick it up! If they’re open, they’ll do it. Businesses want YOUR business.
- Delivery: We are so lucky that many businesses are offering delivery right now. Just ask your local restaurant!
- Hit Up The Farms: They’re not out of good food like our grocery stores. Plus, you’re supporting local families. There’s an exhaustive list here.
