Ways you can support local businesses in our area

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!

Shop Local 

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! 

Let’s join together to be there for local businesses in our area. Our efforts can make a difference in the lives of business owners, their employees and our community. South Pointe Apartments

and Homes strives to always be community forward in our local community and in our apartments and homes. To schedule a tour today, call (251) 971-3800 or visit our website www.southpointeapartmentsandhomes.com.

What Our Residents Have To Say

My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!

I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.

Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.

I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.

I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.
