Over the past few weeks, many individuals, by recommendation of the CDC, have started self-distancing and self quarantining in order to decrease the spread of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19.
As a result, many small businesses—including local restaurants, breweries, bars, boutiques, cafes and more—have been negatively affected. While restrictions are currently loosening a little, these small businesses could definitely still use our help!
Thanks to technology, there are some practical ways that we can support these local businesses in trouble, without having to leave our homes. Not only can you order curbside pickup from many Omaha businesses, but you can also purchase a gift card to use at a later date!
If you’ve decided to go the gift card route, this list is for you! We’ve rounded up more than 45 small businesses in Omaha that are selling gift cards online or over the phone. Did we miss your favorite local business? Let us know in the comments so that we can be sure to add them to our growing list.
