Many restaurants and other service providers are promoting gift card purchases right now, as they provide a quick injection of cash that helps them cover staffing and bills.

Local Markets

Instead of heading to one of the larger supermarkets, you can find great local producers near your! A few of my go-to’s are Kin’s Farm Market, Lonsdale Quay Market, Foxy Market, Choices Markets, Persia Foods, and Larry’s Market.

There are also many costless ways you can support local business. For example, leave a Google review – if you visited a local shop, restaurant, or business recently, do them a favour by leaving a positive review about your experience. This can help business owners build a solid reputation online and welcome more incoming customers. I would also highly urge following these businesses online and sharing their content with your friends and family members in order to help bring more awareness to their businesses.
