Stay Safe & Support Local Businesses

Here are some ideas on how

The local businesses that make West Colfax a great place now face major challenges, as are we all in coping with the corona virus crisis. We encourage you to consider remember these small businesses even if you can’t visit them. Here are some ideas for how you can do your part to keep them around for the duration while also keeping our West Colfax community safe.

  • Order takeout or delivery and tip the same amount as you would dining in.
  • Help a neighbor + shop local. If your neighbors, friends, or family are in high-risk groups and need more isolation, offer to pick things up for them from local businesses rather than relying solely on online shopping from major corporations.
  • Shop online or via phone. Many of our businesses have online shopping available; our local and independent shops will help you get what you need via phone, Facetime, or other methods, if necessary.
  • Buy gift cards. You’ll be able to enjoy them later while supporting small businesses now, when they need it most.
  • Give your favorite biz a shout-out. It doesn’t cost a thing to give kudos to your favorite local businesses via social media, Yelp, or Google Reviews. It’s an incredibly difficult time for small business owners, and every bit of visibility and amplification helps.
  • Let us know about businesses that can use some extra support. We’re here to amplify, encourage, and connect independent businesses in need to consumers who care (info@westcolfaxbid.org).
  • Share this post and information widely so others know how to help.
  • Stay safe!
