You love getting your hair and nails done, taking your dog to get groomed and eating out at restaurants, for example, so how do you help these service providers (and others) and their businesses?
⁰Pay for products you'd normally only use in stores.
⁰Continue to purchase gift cards and vouchers.
⁰Post about your service providers on social media, and take to review sites like Yelp.
⁰Be patient while some service providers adjust to a new reality.
⁰Sign up for any digital offerings alongside friends and family.
⁰Start scheduling for the rest of the season (or year) right now.
⁰Take a few minutes to check in, even if it's just to say hello.
