Small Business Chattanooga

In Chattanooga, we are fortunate to have many local businesses that make our community a wonderful place to call home. 

Due to current events and restrictions, these small businesses need us, more than ever. Here are a few ways that you can support small businesses in Chattanooga while social distancing. 

  1. Opt for Curbside Service
    Though exact guidelines vary from city to city, many areas are allowing restaurants that have had to close their dining rooms continue to serve food and beverages to customers via drive-up windows, delivery, and curbside services. Instead of foregoing eating out entirely, continue to order meals and snacks for delivery or drive-up service (as long as it's permitted by your local COVID-19 guidelines). 
  1. Order Products Online
    Even though in-person shopping may not be possible or recommended, it might be possible to continue to order your favorite products from small businesses online. Ask your preferred Chattanooga small business if it has a website or if it's possible to order items via its social media page. You might have the option to have your order delivered or brought out to your vehicle via curbside delivery.
