And here are five things you can do to help out the businesses in our neighborhood.
1. Shop online or via phone. Many of Downtown’s retailers have online shopping available; our
local and independent shops will help you get what you need via phone, Facetime or other
methods, if necessary.
2. If you do not need anything specific at the moment but still want to support local, buy gift
cards to spend later in our various storefront businesses.
3. For restaurants, order takeout or delivery and tip the same amount as you would dining in.
4. You can buy gift cards for many local restaurants, too.
5. Share this information widely so others know how to help.
