Six ways to still support our local businesses.
1. Order Takeout or Delivery
Your favorite Goochland restaurants may still be open and many of them offering takeout or delivery options.
2. If You Must Shop, Shop Local Businesses
If you must shop for essential items, shop local. Many local businesses may have better selections and more options available than their larger counterparts.
3. Use Credit or Debit Cards
When you do go shopping, use a credit or debit card instead of cash. Paper money and coins pass through so many hands and carry all types of germs. Limiting the amount of cash you use can help limit the spread of those germs.
4. Stay Home if You’re Sick
Don’t put others at risk if you’re sick. That seems like common sense, but consider using a delivery service, family, or a friend if there’s something you really need. Many of the small businesses in our community are working hard to get through this. The last thing they need is for their employees to get sick because a customer went out when they shouldn’t have.
5. Be Patient
In many cases, businesses are working at a dramatically reduced capacity. There’s a good chance that you’ll experience longer waits or encounter out-of-stock items.
6. Say Thank You
When you do go to the store to buy what you need be sure to say thanks to the employees. It can be easy to forget that many of those employees are working overtime to keep their store clean and full of the food and supplies customers need.
