EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

In these unprecedented times of coronavirus, we need to support our local businesses

Our agents have always had a special relationship with the Annapolis local business community. They keep tabs on local real estate market changes, tracking the changing face of Main Street and the mom and pop businesses that have spanned decades.

Our company works closely with small business owners to help them promote their goods and services, celebrate their successes and offer deals to potential clients. After all, we are a small business as well and believe in community spirit.

As America has seemingly shut down overnight with the spreading coronavirus pandemic, our Annapolis business community has acutely felt the loss of its customers and its community. Restaurants that were bustling until just 2 weeks ago, preparing for spring weather and taking reservations for upcoming birthdays and graduations, now sit empty and unsure of when diners will next pass through their doors.

Local gyms and day care facilities have made the difficult decision to close in the hopes that it’s only temporary. Countless storefronts along Main Street that relied heavily on foot traffic that isn’t there anymore are looking at their bottom lines, wondering how long they can weather the storm.

And so, it is at this precipitous time that we’re reaching out to implore everyone who is able to offer a strong show of support. It can be a purchase online, buying a gift card for the future or even just sending a message telling them you care.

Annapolis is where we call home. Now is the time to do what we can for Annapolis business owners.

ORDER OUT

Order food from restaurants that still offer pick-up and delivery services. Shop for other merchandise, like tavern t-shirts and tumblers, too. Ask restaurants if they’ll consider selling perishable food items that they have in stock but that might no longer be available at grocery stores or online retailers.

BUY A GIFT CARD

Business owners say they appreciate the gesture both as a sign of customer loyalty and for the immediate infusion of cash that gift cards provide. Visit downtown Annapolis to find business locations and hours.

SHOP LOCAL-BUT ONLINE

With Governor Hogan’s Shelter In Place order, most of downtown Annapolis stores and cafes are “closed for browsing but open for business.” Stores can ship orders placed through their website and help with purchasing over the phone. Keeping the revenue flowing with those online sales may help save jobs.

CHANGE A LIFE TODAY

Helping all of the men and women who are putting their lives on the line in our hospitals should be remembered as well. Anne Arundel Medical Center has a Community Response Fund to help keep necessary supplies on the front lines. They are accepting a long list of Personal protective equipment (PPE). If you or someone you know have a supply of masks or any of the other essential medical supplies listed below, please donate them to help our heros.
