Shop Local & Support Small Business During A Trying Time

Posted on 13 April 2020

We’re all battling the same fight right now, which is why it has never been more important to stick together, shop local, and strengthen communities across the world. While many storefronts are closing to avoid the risk of spreading this disease, local businesses continue to find ways to satisfy their customers during a rough time. Local restaurants, department stores, home improvement stores, service companies, and boutiques in Fort Lauderdale need support from their community now more than ever. 


COVID-19 Won’t Defeat Our Local Communities


While we all feel the effects of this lockdown, there are plenty of things we can do as a community to show our support for the local businesses and service companies that keep it running daily. While we can’t physically demonstrate our support by visiting them, many companies are offering ways to stay connected online. 


You can visit the websites of all your favorite shops and services to see if they are offering any discounts or incentives to purchase during this trying time. Many of these businesses are always giving updates on social media, so their customers know what they’re able to offer currently. 


The lockdown might cause us to change our daily routines, but it doesn’t have to affect everything that happens locally. Instead, we should take this time to remind us how important our local economy is and use it as a positive moving forward. 


Use this time to purchase gift cards, place an order even if you won’t receive it right away, and interact with them online because they can use some entertainment too!


Benefits When You Shop Local During This Time


With most of us spending more time at home, we are likely finding ways to make use of our time. You might’ve gotten some cleaning done at home and realized your closet was looking a little bare. What better time to freshen up your wardrobe and prepare for the summer months than placing an online order at your favorite boutiques in Fort Lauderdale? 


There are many reasons you should shop locally during this time, and we will detail some of the most important ones below. Let’s take a look:


  1. The more support local businesses receive now, the more they can help give it back to those that need it. 
  2. Local businesses care more about customer service and satisfaction, making you feel special.
  3. Giving your support to local businesses now will make them more invested in your community in the future. 
  4. Buying locally during this time will help prevent downsizing and layoffs, keeping them in your community much longer.

There’s a lot we can do as a community right now to lessen the blow we’re all experiencing. It’s essential now more than ever that we band together to fight through this as one.
