We know you love and support small business, but if we don't help them (aka us) now, they may not be able to reopen when this all passes. How to help independent small businesses during the pandemic crisis:
Purchase Gift Cards 🥳
Many small businesses including Bidwell Botanicals sell gift cards. Restaurants, salons, spas, retail establishments, etc, and most of them can be redeemed on line. Here's a link to our e-gift card products: https://bidwellbotanicals.com/collections/gifts/products/gift-card
Participate in Fundraisers 😇
Check around your local area to see if there are any fundraisers for your favorite small businesses. Also check for restaurants or bakeries looking for volunteers to deliver to local hospitals and care facilities.
Leave Good Reviews 👍
I repeat, Leave Good Reviews! Since so many of us rely on online reviews to drive traffic to our stores it's critical, all of the time but especially now, to leave reviews for products and services you purchased and were happy with. This helps others feel confident in purchasing from those vendors. You can leave reviews for Bidwell Botanicals on any of our product pages (scroll to the bottom) https://www.bidwellbotanicals.com. Just sayin' 😎
Get Social 😎
Hop on the social platforms you frequent and show your favorite small business some love. Like their page on Facebook, follow them on Instagram, share and like their posts, and leave comments to engage others in conversation. Invite friends to like their pages and tag them in posts letting them know you're thinking about them. This will not only help them financially, but will also help them emotionally, knowing people are not forgetting them.
