how to support local businesses right now


With everyone practicing social distancing right now, and tons of cities having “shelter in place” in effect…this means most businesses (that are not ‘essential’) are currently shut down. I know tons of businesses – both big and small – are really hurting right now. So today I wanted to share a list of local dallas businesses you guys can support right now, and tangible ways you can support them even from home (whether you live in Dallas or not!).


Read Between the Lines – such a cute shop in dallas with letterpressed cards and the cutest gifts + candles! Shop from their website to support while their brick and mortar stores are closed! Get free shipping with code SPRINGSHIP

White Rock Coffee – one of my favorite coffee shops in Dallas. Their coffee is SO yummy! You can order coffee from them online and then go pick it up so you’re still #socialdistancing. Their drive thru is also still available! Let’s help support this local coffee shop! You can also buy coffee from them online or subscribe for regular deliveries, if you don’t want to leave your house!

Class Studios – This is the fitness studio I was going to when we moved back to Dallas and LOVING. Their classes are AMAZING! You can take their classes online! If you are a member, you can unfreeze your membership to take these classes. If you aren’t a member, you can pay $39/week for access to their classes. I promise you – they will kick your butt in the best way possible!


All Good Things – a darling stationary + gift shop in Dallas with candles, cookbooks, jewelry and more! Seriously such a cute little boutique. Help them stay in business by shopping from their website right now! Order some cute stationary and write your friends and loved ones to let them know you’re thinking of them!

Esther Penn – this is my personal favorite clothing boutique in Dallas! The inside of the store is so cute and they carry tons of my favorite brands. I always feel so inspired when I shop there! You can shop from their website or their IG and they are doing free shipping!

A few other ways you can support local businesses right now:

  • Continue to order from local restaurants – get your meal delivered or go pick it up if they don’t do delivery! I know we are all cooking at home more which is amazing but let’s keep our fave local restaurants up and running!
  • Call your favorite medspa or hair salon / stylist and order product from them over the phone, or online! A lot of medspas sell really amazing, quality skincare and your purchase will help them out during these times when doors are closed.



What other ways are you guys supporting local businesses?! Or, if you ARE a small business, feel free to comment below and let us know how the LKS community can support you right now. We are all so much stronger together y’all! So let’s come together and all help our favorite local / small businesses stay in business, and come back from this time stronger than ever!
