Beatrice businesses discuss importance of shopping local this holiday season
27 Nov 2020
From increasing takeout and delivery options, to providing services online, local Beatrice businesses have worked to continue providing services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week and into December, the community has several different opportunities to return the favor while holiday shopping.
Beatrice Chamber of Commerce Director Angie Bruna said they plan to have social media prompts through the Beatrice Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page coinciding with Thankful Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Selfie Sunday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday and What’s For Lunch Wednesday.
Bruna said Chamber members can also call their office to participate in support local punch cards, where participants get a stamp for every $10 spent, and can win prizes after spending $100. She said it’s important to take health and safety precautions due to COVID-19, while also supporting local businesses.
