Our world changed in what feels like an instant. We rely on online shopping more than ever before. For businesses unprepared, there has been some adapting and learning. The best thing you can do as a consumer is be there to support them in this time of change, if and when you can. Here are some ways you can help support Back Bay local businesses.
Restaurants are now turning to food delivery or pick up only, making it a perfect time to take a break from cooking and help support your favorite local restaurant. When you order from a restaurant, you’re not only helping their business, you’re helping all of the employees and their families. Even the people delivering your food are impacted by your choice. You can make a huge impact. We recommend tipping more than usual, if you can, to make an even greater impact.
Support Back Bay local businesses by shopping online or making phone orders. However your favorite stores are adapting, be kind and adapt with them. For some businesses, even just buying gift cards to use in the future is helping them stay alive and continue to pay their employees during this unique time.
Beyond retail and food services, there are nonprofit organizations and charities that need help, whether it’s giving blood, donating food, volunteering your time, or donating money. Looking for some organizations in need? Check out this list of Disaster and Emergency Relief Resources.
For some Back Bay local businesses, they’ve turned to virtual means to continue providing their services. For example, therapists, fitness classes, and classes for kids. While it might not be the same experience you’re used to, we hope you continue supporting these businesses as they work hard to be there for you.
We’re all trying to navigate this current lifestyle the best way we can. Let’s help one another out if possible by supporting Back Bay local businesses. What are you doing at 30 Dalton to support others?
