Ways to Support Local Businesses in St. Mary’s County
The hospitality industry in southern Maryland needs your help!
In St. Mary’s County, the hospitality industry employs thousands of individuals - hotel workers, chefs, retailers, tour operators, event planners, wedding vendors, caterers, museum staff, and so many more - who make their living by serving both visitors and local residents alike. You’ll find your fellow citizens working at restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, attractions, sporting events, and elsewhere helping make St. Mary’s County a wonderful place to live and an exciting spot to visit.
However, due to the novel coronavirus / COVID-19, canceled gatherings and a loss of revenue, our locally-owned, locally operated small businesses need community support now more than ever.
You can help! If you can afford it, consider making a purchase in the coming days and weeks from a local business - whether it's shopping online, ordering take-out/delivery, and so much more.
So many of our local businesses can have their products delivered right to your door or made safely available for curb-side pickup. Many of our local restaurants have the option to purchase gift cards for future use, and tickets for future events, classes, and activities can be purchased now to help keep small businesses up-and-running.
Below, Visit St. Mary’s has compiled a list of direct links to websites of local businesses you can support while we continue social distancing. If you do not see the business you are looking for, you can always give them a call directly to ask what options they may have. If you can’t afford to make a purchase right now, consider sharing this page with a friend or family member who may be interested in helping.
