The impacts of COVID-19 have touched all of us, illness or not. At the top of that list are small, independent businesses, especially bars and restaurants.
They need our help, and it’s time for us to step up and help them.
Shop local. Eat local — takeout or delivery from a local bar or restaurant. Spend local. It’s advice we can live by all the time, especially now.
It’s a matter of survival for some of these businesses.
Here are two resources to help …
- Former City Clerk Jim Shelenske has lunched a new web page devoted to sharing information on local businesses, focused on bars and restaurants. Check it out here, and if you want to have your South Milwaukee business listed, email Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org
- I also continue to operate and regularly update the Shop Local South Milwaukee Facebook page, where I share updates from other local business Facebook pages throughout the day. Give it a like, too.
Look for regular updates on both sites. And shop local!
How about starting with a fish fry tonight?
