How You Can Support Local Business

The City of Hoover understands that the following weeks will be difficult for many of our local businesses and employees. We encourage citizens to continue to support Hoover’s local businesses.  Below are a few constructive ways to support our local and small businesses in this time.

  • Buy gift cards or certificates: A little here and there can hold small businesses over
  • Shop online: Check Facebook, Instagram and other social media outlets for business websites or stores
  • Order takeout and/or use drive through and curbside pick-up options
  • Tip generously
  • If you are a business with employees working extended hours, consider bringing in meals from a Hoover restaurant.
