Remember to Support Local
This is a hard time for us all, and some of the local restaurants can’t afford to close their doors. Some of the best ways we can support them buy a gift card to use later, order takeout or delivery. Simply Delivery, Skip the Dishes, and Uber Eats are great ways to find local restaurants and enjoy their great food from the comfort of your own home. Another great option is calling your favourite local restaurant and see if they’re open — many local restaurants are also offering discounts if you order delivery over the phone.
