Whether it’s your favorite neighborhood coffee shop, your friend’s boutique, or a local restaurant you love, our local businesses have been disrupted and are relying on their community for support, now more than ever. While there is a lot unknown, what is evident is that a strong community prevails no matter the space that separates us. Here are some ways you can support Overland Park businesses while keeping your social distance.
ORDER TAKE-OUT AND DELIVERY FROM RESTAURANTS
Restaurants are adopting to the current situation with new curbside pick-up and delivery options. From Q39 offering BBQ family meal packages, to The Brass Onion’s new carry-out menu, or Best Regards Bakery sugar cookies, you can still get your favorites and feel good about helping local restaurants. Recent loosening of liquor laws from the state also allows restaurants to offer beer and wine to-go and I think I speak for everyone when I say ‘Thank you Kansas’ for that. Visit our restaurants page to see what restaurants are offering during the distance.
BE A DIGITAL SUPPORTER
Show support by purchasing gift cards, leaving Google and Yelp reviews, or shopping local online stores. No matter the amount, you will make a difference. Want the ultimate feel-good? If you are able, purchase a gift card and then donate it to a school or nonprofit to be used in upcoming fundraising efforts.
SEND A CARE PACKAGE
We all need reassurance right now. Brighten someone’s day by sending them a nice care package full of local goods like Andre’s chocolates (offering free delivery), or unique finds from The General Store's online store.
