6 ways to support Viking-owned businesses
In recognizing the challenges many small businesses are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now more important than ever for us to lend our support. Many alumni and Viking families own and operate local businesses that are open and ready to serve their community. Some will need support as they reopen in the coming weeks.
Check out the list of Viking-owned businesses at vasj.com/vikingowned and show some support!
1. Order takeout, curbside pickup or delivery
Order takeout, curbside pickup or delivery from a restaurant or grocery store. If you are able, consider giving a generous tip for a job well done.
2. Use a service
For businesses that provide a service, consider them as your first choice or keep them in mind when they are able to reopen.
3. Shop online
Place an online order from businesses that are conducting e-sales. Some may offer free shipping, delivery or pickup.
4. Purchase a gift card
Purchasing a gift card not only supports a small business now, but it also gives you something to look forward to when things return back to normal!
5. Write a good review
Had a good experience with one of the businesses listed? Share the good news! Give a business a good review on Yelp, Google or a food delivery service app.
6. Get social
