The CV Closures have been rough on small businesses, that’s no secret. But there are many who are still hustling and have made some amazing pivots to keep in business. I am so impressed with their resilience and commitment to the community and their staff!
To inspire us as well as feature a few of them, we’ve created a list of businesses in Summit and Lake counties that are still out there working hard. This list is far from conclusive, and please let me know if you’d like to have your business featured!
Many restaurants have shifted to curbside pickup and delivery, which is great. Ordering for pickup can be a great way to help out our local small business. Here’s a few great options for you:
In Breck, Doma 1898 has a great menu, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Call (970)453-1525 or visit doma1898.com to get more info. Aurum is offering 20% off curbside pickup AND $100 gift cards. Breck Distillery is offering BOGO 50% bottles, a great way to stock up!
Kelsey Booth Photography
Kelsey specializes in photography, specifically weddings. As most weddings are canceled, Kelsey has graciously offered to help businesses create some content, via photography. She even created a dropbox near her house, where you can drop off your product for her to photograph! Find out more info here: kelseybooth.com/
The Spa at Breck
While the spa is closed, they are still offering gift cards online. This is a great way to support your locally owned and run companies, to help them ride out the shutdowns. You can purchase from their website.
Curbside Margaritas! Eggs, flour, toilet paper and discounted bottles of wine! Do you need any more reasons to take advantage of Treeline’s full menu via delivery and pickup? Based out of Main Street Leadville, Treeline is offering a full menu, complete with cocktails and dessert. As a service to their community, they are also selling various staples so yo don’t have to go to the grocery store. Check it out here: treelinekitchen.com
Sunny Side Up/Groovy Moose
The Sunny Side Up has really done a great job of pivoting and supporting our community at the same time. They are offering daily illustrations, where you can learn how to draw. Secondly, she has a “Honesty Store” where she is selling art supplies, projects and clothing – all right from her porch in Breckenridge! (Payments are on the honor system, so social distancing won’t be problem.) These activities are geared towards keeping kids active and learning while they are out of school. Learn more about it on her facebook and website.
Olive Fusion is offering a $15 credit to cover shipping on orders over $75. Find more here.
Magical Scraps has always had a thriving Etsy store. But now they are creating and selling masks for those who can’t find them in the stores!
In the style of true pivot, TLC has opened up an online store to sell supplements and launched it in the last week! Check it out here: tlcacu.com/
While Grateful Paws is operating at limited hours at the moment, they are really working on keeping the store clean and corona-free. They are also offering FREE delivery and curbside pickup. As always, you and your fur babies will be well cared for at Grateful Paws. Call 719-486-7375 to schedule or check out the website.
