For those businesses within the Sarasota County Area check out the following Facebook Groups that encourage local shoppers to make purchases from local stores offering curbside pickup/takeout or shipping:
RETAIL & RESTAURANTS
Shop Local SRQ: Curb Side Pick Up
Curbside Suncoast Food & Drink To Go *
*This Group currently does not allow National Chains BUT the retail and restaurant group does.
You are able to post into each group encouraging local shoppers to make purchases. The takeout group has been very successful, the retail group is newer and just starting to pick up momentum.
