Before you start your holiday shopping, be prepared with hand sanitizer, wipes and, of course, your mask if you plan to shop in-store.
Go Local – Want to avoid large crowds? Not only is shopping at small and local businesses often a better option for the local economy, but you may also avoid large groups—especially in non-peak shopping hours.
Skip the line – Many stores are offering contactless pick-up or curbside delivery. Take advantage of these options and shop from the comfort of your home. When your order is ready, go pick it up without having to get out of your car.
Go crafty — “Experience” presents like gift cards, certificates, or concert tickets may not be a safe bet this year, but that doesn’t mean the gift can’t still be special. For those you care about the most, make a gift that will remind them of you. Sometimes it is the thought that counts!
