COVID-19 Customer Resources
Interested in Supporting Local Businesses? We’ve Got You Covered!
Here are some tips and resources to help support our local businesses!
Dine-In Customer Guidance
Restaurant patrons have also been provided guidance regarding how to participate in the responsible reopening of restaurant services. The CDC recommends the following measures:
- Maintain 6’ physical distance from other diners
- Consider dining during off-peak hours
- If you’re at higher risk for severe illness, continue to use takeout and delivery services
- Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth
- Use touchless payment when available
- Wash your hands before and after eating and again when you return home
Buy Gift Cards
Purchase gift cards from your favorite local shops and restaurants; this puts money in the pocket of your favorite store owner today to help them cover operating expenses.
Many Surprise retailers have online shops. Several businesses are offering discounts and/or free shipping for those that show support for locals during this time.
Reminder: Not all businesses offer online shopping. Shops that do not provide online shops may be able to take your order over the phone and schedule deliveries - don’t hesistate to call and ask!
Tip a Little Extra
Have a steady paycheck? Leave a little extra cash for service workers! If you are able, consider leaving a dine-in tip on takeout orders, and leaving a little extra for the kitchen staff too.
Spending more time online? Engage with your favorite Surprise businesses and leave a positive Google, Yelp, or Facebook review.
Like, follow, comment and engage with them on social media. It’s free to you and helps remind businesses that they aren’t forgotten. This kind of social currency pays dividends of a different kind.
