Montgomery County's Businesses Need You

3 Minute Read


As our local, regional, national and global community makes the necessary adjustments to navigate this period of uncertainty, Montgomery County's hospitality industry is working tirelessly to provide our community with every available resource and opportunity to support one another.

Amidst government-mandated closures of restaurants and bars, our local dining scene is continuing to serve the Montco community while complying with health and safety regulations. Now is a great time to show your support for all those who make Montgomery County a great place to live, work, and visit. Check out our top tips below:

 

Buy Gift Cards & Certificates to Local Businesses

 

Gift Cards are a fantastic way to any and all local businesses. Thousands of Montco based businesses; retail, restaurant, bars, attractions, etc., offer gift cards that are available for purchase online. The best part is that they can be used at any time, for any reason. There's no need to worry about using the offers you select within a limited time when you buy gift cards.

While practicing social distancing, having something to look forward to in the future is a good way to keep your spirits high. Plan ahead for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, or future travel plans by purchasing gift cards you can use later on.  

 

Buy Merchandise Online

 

By the same token, purchasing merchandise from local businesses also helps to keep spirits and revenue up. A plethora of Montco's small businesses offer their patrons the opportunity to support them through official merch. Be it t-shirts and hoodies, mugs and koozies, or other variations of merch, many Montco businesses have dedicated pages on their websites for merch sales. 

Keep small businesses in mind while you browse the internet for your next online purchase. 

 

Order Takeout

 

While we're staying safe through social distancing, adding some variety into your new routine helps not just you, but your favorite restaurants in the area. Montco is a fantastic area for dining and our 1,600+ restaurants are leading the charge by offering take out from your local favorite spots. You're already online, so why not check out which Montco favorites are offering curbside pick up, take out and delivery specials? 

Areas restaurants in Montgomery County are offering those who are self-isolating the opportunity to come to pick up and take out a delicious meal from numerous local favorites. See who's still serving here
 

Tip Well When You Can

 

Regardless of the current situation, tipping well is something we should all be practicing on a regular basis. However, in times of uncertainty, tipping well when we can is one way to provide for those who primarily rely on the generosity of their fellow man as a source of income. Those who work part-time or hourly shifts will have to miss shifts due to closures of restaurants, schools, etc. Make sure to factor in tipping when considering going to pick up a meal or having food and other items delivered to you at home. 

 

Reschedule Your Reservations If You Can't Make It

 

We understand how tough it is to have to cancel plans. We WILL get back to normal so in the meantime don't cancel but reschedule the reservations for the future. Just think, enjoying a fresh cold beverage and an italian meal at one of our 1600+ dining places in Montgomery County.

Take Care of Yourself

 

It is important to take care of yourself. Having good health helps boost your immune system. Here are some suggestion on how to take care of yourself:

  • Yoga in your home
  • Take your dog for a walk
  • Make a healthy home cooked meal
  • Call a friend you haven't spoken to in awhile
  • Workout in your home
  • Go for a run
  • Start/Continue a new hobby

Explore the Trails


ALL MONTGOMERY COUNTY PARK AND HISTORIC SITES ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. TRAILS REMAIN OPEN!

We know how tough it is be indoors all the times. Get outside and get some fresh air. It's the best cure for the blues. All permits have been revoked and the parks should be considered closed, but if the trail goes through the park, you can ride your bike or run or walk through but be sure to keep your social distance!

Please note, Valley Forge National Historical Park is now closed. Explore the trails here.
