The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the way we conduct business, how we shop, how we eat, and even the ways in which we interact with our friends and family. Everyone has been forced to make sacrifices. Many have suffered the loss of their regular income, while some have fallen victim to the illness itself. Amidst all the isolation and loss, however, people everywhere have stepped up to the occasion to help one another. This has never been more true than within local communities who have rallied around their small businesses. Here are just a few examples of how businesses have devised creative solutions to stay open, and how customers can #StandUpforSmallBusiness.
