How to Support Local Businesses

June 4, 2020

Part of what makes a New Tradition Homes community so special are the bonds you form with the people around you. But what’s so incredible is that those relationships aren’t just limited to your neighbors, but to those who run the local businesses that make your town so enjoyable.

From your favorite spot for pizza and drinks to the little shop where you know you’ll always find something unique, local businesses add a special spark to your daily routine. While you’re spending more time at home right now, there’s no better time to support the businesses that love you back!

Here are a few easy and effective ways to give back to the local businesses in your town:

Delivery and Pickup: Every day, more of your favorite restaurants and bars are adding delivery options through services like Grubhub, DoorDash, and UberEats, as well as no-contact, curbside pickup (and even to-go cocktails)! Continue to order meals when you can and check out the websites of your favorite eateries to see if they’ve added delivery options lately. Extra tips are especially helpful too!

Social Media: In today’s digital world (and especially with everyone online at the moment), there’s no better way to show your love for your favorite local spot than by sharing something about it on social media. Have a favorite memory? Post an Instagram story. Have a photo of a delicious meal? Share a Facebook post. You can also help to put the spotlight on places like museums offering virtual tours and learning opportunities!

Online Services: From yoga studios to gyms, many businesses are now offering their services completely online. Take a look at their websites to see what kinds of classes you can take from the comfort of your spacious home! You’ll love this unique way of staying active and supporting local businesses. 

Purchase Gift Cards: This is especially beneficial to businesses that can’t continue to operate at the moment. Apart from helping to keep the business afloat, purchasing a gift card for later use shows an incredible amount of love and support on your part. When you do get to use the gift card, it’ll be even more special. 

From shops and restaurants to fitness centers and museums, the places where you love to spend your time are just as eager as you to get back to business and connect with one another. In the meantime, do what you can to show your support and let them know how much they mean to you and your community! 

I don't remember the first time I saw a New Tradition home, but it was MANY years ago. During the internet evolution, I have watched New Tradition evolve into a great company. I don't know why, I guess it was my dream to own one I just didn't know it yet. Years later, my husband and I decided it was time to build. After looking at all the builders and communities we stopped into a New Tradition home and he fell in love! (I was already there). 4 months later the floor plan of our dreams came available and we were hooked. 1 year later, we are now in our New Tradition home and I couldn't be happier!
