Shopping small means big support for local business

Friends, we’re facing tough times. As we delve deeper into our strange new reality, we’re all wondering how to achieve the normal everyday things we need to do, like feeding our families and running errands, while taking care of ourselves and others.

Routines are changing and it is a bit disorienting.

Our small businesses are on the front lines of these changes, and they’re springing into action to serve you in a way that makes sense now: Meals are being delivered curbside, delivery fees are being waived, and hours are flexing to balance the costs of doing business in a time when customers are being asked to stay home.

With the loss of foot traffic, our shops are feeling deep cuts into their daily business. Our small business community needs your support more than ever. We kindly ask that as you make purchasing decisions in the next weeks to first consider supporting Parker County small businesses, like the businesses at The Shops at Willow Park.
