Shop Local! How to Support Local Businesses in Need

It’s no secret that a lot of small businesses are struggling right now in the face of the ongoing virus. While Royal Heating & Air has been able to stay open and continue serving your HVAC needs, some places have had to shut down or seriously alter the way they operate overnight. If you are looking for a way to help support your local businesses, we have some ideas!

Order Takeout

Many restaurants have been able to open back up for dine-in service, but they still have to limit seating in order to be able to safely serve their patrons. So many people are excited to get out of the house and enjoy a meal in a restaurant again, which is great! But it can also lead to congestion and long waits outside of the restaurant. You can help ease the burden and still support these restaurants with your business by continuing to order takeout that can be enjoyed at home. Make sure to still tip well to help keep your favorite local eateries in business and their employees well cared-for.

Buy Gift Cards

If you can’t get out, or don’t yet feel comfortable doing so, you can still support local businesses by purchasing gift cards. Many places can accept gift card orders online or over the phone and deliver an electronic gift certificate to your email address. If you need inspiration, think of services that you would normally be using now, that you know you’ll be excited to use again when everything clears up… Favorite restaurants, local hair salons, spas, etc.

Check in on Social Media

Most businesses these days have several social media accounts to help you stay connected and up-to-date on their services and specials. Find your favorite local establishments online and follow them on social media! Not only will this help their online presence, but then you can keep up with what they are doing during this time to adjust the services.


Did you get nervous and fill a cart with all the hand sanitizer, masks, and toilet paper you could? Several of these items are returning to supermarket shelves. So, if you have extra on hand, it could be a huge blessing to your local businesses to receive hand sanitizer, anti-bacterial wipes, and other supplies that their business needs in order to safely operate.
