• #SMVOpenForBusiness: Show Your Support for Local Business

    While it may look a little different during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Santa Maria Valley business community is still very much open for business, and needs your support now more than ever. You can learn some easy ways to support local businesses during COVID-19 HERE.

    We want to hear how you are supporting our local business community! Share with us how you are supporting our Santa Maria Valley businesses by using the hashtag #SMVOpenForBusiness on your social media platforms. Maybe you’re getting takeout from your favorite local restaurant, or purchasing a gift card from your local stylist because you’re not able to book an appointment right now. Whatever it may be, tag #SMVOpenForBusiness and we will share on our social media channels!

    If you are a local business, tell us how you’re adapting to continue to meet the needs of the community during COVID-19. Whether that means changing hours, offering pickup or takeout, or having a stronger presence in your online store, tag #SMVOpenForBusiness so we can share with our community.

    While the COVID-19 pandemic is proving to be a trying and stressful time, it is also a time for our local community to come together and support one another.
