What you can do to help local businesses

In this unprecedented time of uncertainty, you can help make a significant difference by supporting local business.

Valpak urges you to join us in helping our local businesses strong in a safe way. Here are a few ideas on what you can do:

Local Strong

Buy Gift Cards

Call or visit your favorite restaurant, theater or local retail store and purchase a gift card.  Hang on to that gift card for future use or better yet-go to their website and shop online.  Make a digital purchase and have it delivered right to your door.

Using a gift card online

Order To-Go or Delivery

Order from your local restaurants and bars via delivery service, to-go or curbside pickup.  While you’re at it, make sure you Tip more than usual because delivery people, chefs and food preppers would greatly appreciate a little extra help through tips.

Stay Looped In

Keep up with your memberships and with services that are still offered online.  Also, if you are financially able to do so, consider not asking for refunds.  Think of this as a donation to the business or organization you were looking forward to showing up for and supporting.

Amplify Your Support

Remember this-It’s totally FREE to give a business a friendly shout-out or kind  review on social media,  or maybe a virtual “high-five” through word of mouth.
