Buy gift cards
Purchasing a gift card from your favorite shop, theatre or restaurant is an immediate way to put cash into the business.
Shop local - online and off
Using local stores will have an enormous impact on their business. Many stores are now offering home delivery for customers who can't leave home. Are you well and running errands, remember to follow the health guidelines: keep at least one metre away from people, cough/sneeze into a paper tissue or into your elbow and most important of all: good hand hygiene.
Many independently owned restaurants and food businesses are now offering home delivery, a new service for many of them.
