Small Business Appreciation: Food & Personal Services Edition
May 13, 2020
Continuing with Small Business Appreciation, today’s post is all about food and personal services! While some are locally based, many offer online purchases and offerings as well. With Father’s Day just around the corner, some of the food options would be cute gift ideas! I actually sent my parents lobster rolls and clam chowder from McLoons Lobster Shack in Maine via Goldbelly for Mother’s Day! Hope you all are enjoying these posts and continue to shop small when you can. As always, keep sharing other small businesses in the comments below!
