Supporting Local Boise Businesses During the Coronavirus

Things are off in the world right now, that can definitely be felt all over Boise. With this confusing time and the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, small and local businesses are struggling. As less people leave their homes, restaurants, cafes, small shops, and other small businesses are going through a difficult time. We have compiled a list of ways small businesses are continuing to offer support to our community. If you have the ability to support small businesses, these might be a few great options!

A few tips on supporting local:

  • Purchase gift cards to use at a later date or gift to a friend or someone in need
  • Continue to schedule appointments for future self-care treatments, reserve spots at local event centers, or plan for catering in the future
  • Purchase local ingredients and products from the grocery store
