Staying in is not easy, especially when you want to support you favorite local restaurants and shops.

A few ways to support these businesses are by ordering carryout, shopping online or buying gift cards.

You can also digitally support small businesses by posting on social media. We created this Instagram story so that you can continue to share your support and tag your cherished neighborhood spots — don’t forget to tag us at @LakeHighlandsAdvocate
