It's important now, more than ever to shop local and support our community. 

Consider ordering takeout from a restaurant or a purchasing a gift card from them and supporting the hospitality industry during this time.

Purchase some of your favorites in bulk to spice up your meals at home, such as dressings, desserts, salads and more.

Buy gift cards now for date nights in the future or go ahead and knock out your Christmas shopping with gift cards from your favorite places.

DON’T FORGET to tip your to-go server and delivery drivers… this is their livelihood and they need this now more than ever.

We encourage safe and responsible health practices and travel during this time. Please refer to the N.C. DHHS website for more information.
