WSBS along with the Southern Berkshire Chamber of Commerce encourage you to shop local; keeping these businesses running especially during these uncertain times.

Here are a few things to think about when making your next shopping trip:

  • Consider local shops for purchases instead of online giants
  • Reopening details might change quickly; follow your favorite businesses on social media and check their websites often for updates
  • Purchase gift certificates to use later
  • Get take-out or delivery from a local restaurant
  • Pre-pay for services you are putting off until later

Help keep the southern Berkshires open in the future and thank you.
