While I typically write with a lighthearted tone drenched with self-deprecation and sarcasm, I don’t feel that would be appropriate given the current situation(s) we are all experiencing. My heart goes out to everyone at this time and a huge thank you to all the workers who are keeping us healthy, safe and secure.

It can go without saying that our friends in the small business community have been hit specifically hard right now, due to orders to close their doors and adhere to social distancing.

Thankfully, we live in a world that is so virtually connected, we can still support our small businesses even though we may not be able to visit them in-store.

In fact, I think we can all use a little retail therapy right now.

Here’s how you can support some of our local boutiques:

Harrisburg

  • Little Black Dress – LBD just launched their online store and is offering local and curbside delivery and you can also shop limited inventory online. Or, buy a gift card to use at a later time or order through DM on Facebook or Instagram.
  • Three Little Birds – Shop online, through DM or via text and receive free shipping. Don’t forget to follow on Instagram and Facebook for inspo, new inventory and fun!
  • Stash Vintage – Shop the Etsy store — Look for flash sales via Instagram!

Lancaster

  • Sophie Stargazer – Buy a gift card to use at a later time or use towards a private shopping party or styling session. You can shop online, too.
  • Nicole Taylor Boutique – Shop online or purchase a gift card to use towards inventory, a private shopping party or styling session.
  • Lush Bazaar – Free shipping when you shop online.

Hershey

  • Knock Knock – Buy an e-gift card using code KNOCK20 for 20% off until March 31. Free shipping for online orders over $20.
  • Simply J – Call the shop to order over the phone or purchase a gift card for 20% off.

York

While this list just focuses on local boutiques, there are a ton of ways you can still support our local restaurants and cafes “virtually” by buying gift cards and through take-out/delivery, too!

Check social media to see what your favorite small businesses are doing at this time and reach out to see how you can help support them.

Other ways you can help support your favorite boutiques or small businesses:

  • Leave a positive review on Facebook or Google
  • Like and share their social media content
  • Reach out with encouraging words
  • Make a wishlist of items you want for gifts or yourself!

Happy shopping and stay healthy and well!
