5 Ways to Support Local Business During COVID19
Supporting local business during COVID19 is really important as we appreciate the last few months have been difficult for everyone, especially small and local businesses. They have had to adapt quickly to new ways of working, ways to hold their experiences, take their businesses online, changing their ranges and learning new skills to stay open.
We have seen many companies turning their businesses around and adapting to help you, the consumer. We want to encourage everyone to do their bit to help support, businesses during lockdown and beyond. It can be as simple as spreading the word about great service, telling friends about a new experience you have had, learning and using Zoom, buying a birthday present from a local business, like the experiences that are COVID19 proof on our website.
Here’s five suggestions in ways you can help your local shops, services and businesses.
- Buy a someone a voucher
We all know someone that is impossible to buy for. Buying a giftcard from a local business can boost their sales give them that much needed cash support they need just now and gives that person the chance to pick something different and perhaps unique. Lots of shops are offering gift card bonuses just now, so treat yourself or someone and shop online. Many of the experiences on our site can be booked now and the vouchers can be used in the next 18 months.
- Home Delivery
Many local restaurants menus are online and they are now offering home delivery. If you are missing your favourite restaurant, cafe or tipple, then ordering from them and getting it delivered to your door, is the perfect weekend treat and a day away from the kitchen. They also could be providing online experiences for you to try.
- Shop online
Lots of local shops have taken their products online over the last few months giving you the chance to still buy something special. Some are offering free postage, curbside pickup and local deliveries. Check out some of the fantastic businesses here on our site. This gives you the chance to try and buy something different. There is the option to extend all experiences during this time and the voucher can be sent in one of our stunning gift boxes.
- Mention and follow Businesses on socials
Something as little as a shout out can go a long, long way! If you’ve ordered something and received fantastic customer service or the food that was delivered was delicious, give the business a mention on social media. As we know social media is a great platform for our voices to be heard and will be seen by hundreds in seconds, show support and let them know.
- Say a general thanks
Check in on your favourites businesses and see how they are doing. Drop them an email, pick up the phone or leave them a note. A little gesture can go a long way and it only takes a few minutes to let them know you are thinking of them, go ahead and make someone’s day and make them smile.
