Shop local.

We've heard this phrase for quite some time. But it hasn't ever meant so much as now.

For some, like me, 2020 can't end fast enough. But we have more than a month to go and it is a crucial time for local businesses.

As you know, new COVID-related restrictions order that bars and restaurants stop in-person service (both indoor and outdoor). Take out is allowed. The current order will remain in effect until Dec. 18.

Shop local.

There are discussions happening in Washington and at the state level which could lead to economic assistance for small businesses, but that will take time and the time is now.

These businesses are doing their part. They are taking extra precautions to make shopping safe. They are finding creative ways to reach their customers. They are offering gift card deals.

But we all must do our part.

Wayzata.com must do its part too. Beginning with our Nov. 30 newsletter, we will offer business card-sized ad space in our publication - free of charge. We will do this for five weeks - essentially until the end of the year.

These newsletters are available throughout Wayzata at Lunds & Byerly's, Walgreens, the Wayzata Bar & Grill, Wuollet Bakery, Caribou Coffee and newsstands along Lake Street, at the Post Office and at City Hall.

If you are a Wayzata business and would like to use the newsletter to promote your business or you are a resident who would like to nominate a business, click on the link below:
