Now more than ever local businesses need help to stay solvent. To control an increase in the spread of Coronavirus, the Governor and Jefferson County Public Health have imposed stricter guidelines one of which closes restaurants to indoor dining. Thanks to Colorado’s more than 360 days of sunshine, there are opportunities to move some business outside; however, those days may be few and far between as we head into November and December.

In the next few weeks, shopping will begin in earnest for the holidays with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Since many are still working from home, online ordering and delivery stands to increase. Why not choose local to make those purchases? Check out featured businesses on Wheat Ridge Social Media.

Wheat Ridge businesses need our support to survive what continues to be a tough year. Get holiday shopping done early and purchase gift cards* now from local merchants. Call that local favorite restaurant and pick up dinner for the family. Grab a growler from that great brew pub to enjoy while watching Sunday’s game or stock up on some great wines from a Wheat Ridge liquor store to toast during this year’s intimate family holiday meal. Higher cases, more hospitalizations, and tragically, more deaths in our community from COVID-19 sends the important message that we must all work together to get through the next few months. Let’s give Wheat Ridge businesses a hand. Go to Biz-Ridge and Eat Ridge for more local businesses and information.

*The City of Wheat Ridge will guarantee up to $100 per household for any gift card (s) purchased from any licensed Wheat Ridge business should the business ceases operations before June 1, 2021.
