Small But Mighty: Support Local

Local businesses lift us up. They’re resilient, creative and committed to making our days a little brighter, even when things get tough. This month, let’s return the favor.

Support the shops and restaurants that help bring our community to life and make this place one-of-a-kind. Showing your favorite local business some love is so easy. Here are some ways you can help:

  • Shop in store.
  • Order curbside pick-up.
  • Ship to someone special.
  • Buy a gift card for now or later.
  • Spread the word through likes, shares and reviews on social!

Not sure who’s who? Just look for a #smallbutmighty sticker on the window, or see the list below for some small biz inspo.
