Take Out and Open-Sign

TakeOut TakeOver!

Our two-week campaign to help our local businesses

We are kicking off Friday with a two-week campaign designed to encourage people to continue supporting our local businesses during this unprecedented time. The Rules: Take a picture of your purchase from any retailer (restaurant or any other establishment), tag the retailer and include the hashtag #TakeOutTakeOverMoCoVA on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter. Your post(s) will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a $20 gift card from a local service industry retailer of your choice plus a $20 Go Local discount card from the NRV Homegrown Business Alliance. One winner will be drawn at 8am each morning from the previous day's entries. Entries are unlimited. Sponsored by Downtown Blacksburg, Inc., South Main Merchant Association of Blacksburg, VA, Downtown Christiansburg Inc., North Blacksburg Business Association, and NRV Homegrown - Go Local Card. Feel free to tag any of these organizations in your post(s)!

Who is Open for Business?

Look for this graphic on local shop and restaurant doors and social media pages so that you can easily see if your favorite is open during this time.

This is a difficult, trying and ever-changing time for all of us and the impact on business is huge. Business operation adaptation is critical during this trying time and our merchants are committed to adapting in any way they can. Please visit our blog for a list of our current changes, including revised store hours, online stores, discounts, curbside deliveries and more. This is a fluid list so please check back often!
