Our local businesses have become very resourceful in these times in order to stay open. Ingenuity and creativity show up in the most unexpected ways, and we love to see it.

I recently heard about an interesting collaboration between two of our advertising partners that I want to share with you. The idea is simple: Every time you make a purchase of $100 or more at the Pedestrian Shops, they will award you a certificate for $15 at a Big Red F restaurant (that includes Centro Mexican Kitchen, Zolo Grill, The Post Brewing Co., Jax and Lola Coastal Mexican).

Who doesn’t like a new pair of kicks and good eats to go with? Put on your nice new shoes and show ‘em off over a nice dish of something delicious with maybe a cool drink on the side. The offer is good while supplies last, so act now.

Our local business need or support now more than ever. Let’s show them how much we appreciate what they offer to our town. And don’t forget your mask!
