Want to support small, locally-owned businesses? Buy a gift card...or two! As you probably know, small businesses in Old Monterey are really suffering during this coronavirus shutdown. Even in the best of times, running a small business is a challenge. The profit margins are small and the hours are long. Now restaurants are open only for take-out and delivery and retail stores and salons are closed entirely.

We've got to shelter-in-place to slow the Covid-19 pandemic. But if you're one of the lucky people whose bank account hasn't been destroyed by the events following the coronavirus outbreak, please consider supporting Old Monterey's temporarily shuttered businesses with the purchase of gift certificates you can use when they're able to re-open their doors. Look for the "Gift Certificates" button in each business profile.

As you probably know, small businesses are really suffering during this coronavirus shutdown. Even in the best of times, running a small business is a challenge. The margins are small and the hours are long. It's not the easiest way to make a living. You do it because it's just who you are and you can't imagine life as anything other than being the owner of a shop or a restaurant.

If you're one of the lucky people whose life hasn't been entirely flipped upside down by the Covid-19 outbreak, please consider supporting our temporarily shuttered businesses with the purchase of a gift certificate that you can use when they're able to open their doors again. Look for the "Gift Certificates" button in each business profile.
