Finding ways to support local businesses has always been an important part of a growing community, especially now more than ever. Our local businesses make up the fabric of our communities, thus developing the livelihood of those who work, play and live in and around them. There are many ways to support local businesses in our area, and all it takes is a little effort on our part to help make a big difference!
Doing this is easier than you might think! There are plenty of local businesses with storefronts in Baldwin County that would love to have you walk through their doors. Coffee shops, clothing stores, restaurants… You name it! Those sales are crucial to not only the business owners and their businesses, but also to our local economy. Even if you’re just stopping by to check the place out, we’re sure those businesses appreciate it!
A small donation towards a local business or tip goes a long way. Consider going the extra mile by doing the “Tip The Bill” challenge, or even making a small donation towards business continuity for a local business. No matter the amount, these businesses can benefit from your gracious generosity towards their vision and services!
Shop Now for Later
Shop with local businesses now to help continue constant cash flow. Purchase a gift for a loved one’s birthday next month, or purchase items ahead of time before you may need them. Not only does this keep constant funds flowing through local businesses, but you’re helping create supply and demand for these business owners to keep doing more with their business for their community.
Buy Gift Cards
Everyone loves gift cards! You may not use a gift card right away, but revenue from this can help excel businesses forward. Consider purchasing a gift card or certificate for your next upcoming service or for a friend. This also makes you a customer later when you’re able to use it!
Support Their Online Efforts
Local businesses often have a brick and mortar location as well as an online hub for you to access from anywhere at any time. Don’t forget about these wonderful avenues! Purchase your items online from their online stores or websites to boost online sales. Maybe even engage with posts on their social media or post your recent purchase to show your friends and loved ones how awesome these local businesses are. The possibilities to help local businesses are endless when it comes to online efforts!
