A rising number of states including South Carolina has ordered several small businesses including bars and French restaurants to close temporarily.
The announcement came following the guidance issued by the CDC to get rid of all the gatherings of over 50 people for the upcoming eight weeks. That could be devastating to individuals and communities who own and work in all kinds of small businesses that are now being forced to close down their doors. Fortunately, there’s still a lot you can do to support them.
Show Support To Your Small Business Community
Order takeout or delivery
Even if your favorite restaurants like The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro has closed down their doors, a lot of them still provide takeout or delivery services. That doesn’t just keep their business going but it also provides delivery drivers their much needed income. Services like DoorDash and Grubhub have sent info to drivers and customers to help ensure contactless and safe deliveries.
Buy Gift Cards
If you want to give some cash into a small business then you should consider buying a gift card. Even if you are not purchasing anything else since you’ve been stuck at home, you could give your favorite restaurants and local shops a vote of confidence just by spending $25 on a gift cart that you may use later, once life returns to normal.
Plan a Date Night
Whether you’ve been going out for a couple of months or if it’s been years since you’ve tied the knot, time will come when you will need new activities for your date night. But ideas for your romantic date night do not really have to be lavish – you can have fun by having home date nights, which are way better compared to any fancy dinner at a French restaurant Myrtle Beach or night out on the town. These at home date night ideas are the best options for couples searching for casual, fresh date inspiration that could take place in the comfort of their own house. Although you could always try a few romantic dinner recipes for couples, why not follow the meal by pampering yourselves with a lobster dinner from The Brentwood Restaurant?

Use Debit or Credit Cards
Once you go shopping, you can use a debit or credit card instead. Coins and paper money will pass through different hands and they will carry germs. If you limit the amount of cash that you carry and use, it will also help limit the possibility of spreading the germs, which is crucial right now.
If You’re Sick, Stay Home
Never put people at risk if you are sick. That may appear like common sense, but you need to think about using takeout or delivery services in case there is something that you really need. A lot of small business in your area are doing what they can to get through all these. What they don’t need is for their workers to get sick since a client went out even if they shouldn’t have.
In several instances, small businesses are operating at significantly reduced capacity. There is a change that you will experience longer waiting period and even deal with out of stock items. Almost, if not all businesses, feel the pain. They would like nothing more than to meet your needs. If they can’t, just give them some patience and a little grace. Always keep in mind that they are working really hard to remain open to serve their community.
