As retailers around the country shut their doors to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, local business owners and celebrities alike are encouraging shoppers to purchase digital gift cards to help cushion the blow from the lack of physical sales.
Many customers are turning to gift cards to support small businesses. Normally, gift cards may no be the first thing that comes to mind when we want to enjoy our local businesses, but right now, that is exactly what makes them useful as a goodwill gesture.
When we buy gift cards, we are able to give our local business owners the immediate help they need, and you get to enjoy the things they have to offer in the future!
Start today and get a head start on your future shopping needs today!
Our small businesses need us more than ever. Even though we can’t leave home, we can still support local restaurants by buying gift cards. It’s basically a mini-loan, so buy one now and make a plan to use it later.
Restaurants have tons of fixed costs: rent, labor, loan repayments, insurance, supplies, repairs – the list goes on. Even successful restaurants have razor thin margins of 3-5%, and a third have struggled to pay employees at least once. The “shelter-in-place” ordinance keeping customers at home could tip the balance into bankruptcy.
We want you to remember that safety and your wellbeing come first!
Although the campaign has come to an end, you can continue to be a Supporter of Broward and shop locally!
