How can you help our small businesses survive?

Help our small businesses survive by taking out dinner, purchasing gift cards and shopping online during the social distancing period while you are at home. Small businesses depend on cash flow to survive; some of them may not open again when things get better.

To keep the Covid-19 virus from spreading in our community, the Cities of Blue Ridge and McCaysville have passed Emergency Ordinances with mandatory shelter in place orders. All except essential businesses are closed as well as lodging and vacation rentals through April 15. Fannin County has also passed an Emergency Ordinance with mandatory closings of tourism related businesses and vacation rentals, but voluntary shelter and place and business closings.

You can help our small businesses survive by ordering take out and pick up from our local restaurants, buying gift cards and ordering online from local small businesses. Below is information about special services by local restaurants while they are closed to inside dining, and shops with online stores and gift cards.

Together we can help our business and our community stay strong during the fight against the Covid-19 virus!

Things you can do to help:

1. Order takeout or curbside pickup from our restaurants. Most of our restaurants have modified their food services to focus on this. Many have even developed custom menus. See below for services offered by member restaurants in the area, with links for your convenience.

2. Purchase gift cards from restaurants. This is a great way to help cash flow and support local establishments in the present and near/long-term future.

3. Purchase gift cards from local retailers and galleries. Now is a also a great time to get ahead of your holiday shopping.

4. Browse your favorite local shops, galleries and business websites for online products and swag. See the list below of local shops and businesses with online shopping. Every dollar you spend now can help a small business reopen.
