The Bay Area’s shelter-in-place order is extended through the end of May but there are still ways to support your community, friends, and neighbors while maintaining social distancing.
Shopping online, over the phone, ordering out, and promoting your wonderful local businesses are just a few of the ways you can support your community and independent, family-owned businesses.
How you can support local while maintaining social distancing:
Shop Online – Many local businesses have an online presence and can mail or personally deliver your items. This is also a great time to stock up on gift cards for future visits or gift giving opportunities.
Order Out – Order takeout, delivery, or curbside pickup from your favorite restaurant.
Leave a Review – Did you have a memorable experience with the owner or an employee the last time you were at a local business? Show your love for favorite shopping, service, and dining establishments by leaving a review.
Promote on Social Media – By interacting virtually with local businesses, you can help them survive this difficult time. Comment and share posts from your favorite local businesses. Post about your favorite places using #DowntownAlameda and tag us @DowntownAlameda. (And remember to follow Downtown Alameda on Instagram and Facebook.)
Like and Subscribe – Be sure to like your favorite local places on all social media channels and subscribe to their email lists to get updates on their activities.
Stay up-to-date with information about downtown businesses offering take-out, delivery, gift certificates, services, and virtual experiences. Our Open For Business list is updated often with more businesses being added.
