We all want to support the great local businesses we love in the late stages of an economy slamming pandemic. Please use this handy "Support Jersey Shore Business Checklist".

We have all been doing our best to support local businesses and we're doing it in spite of finance pressures most of us haven't ever experienced. And yet we find a way to lend a hand to Jersey Shore businesses when we can.

That's because we all understand how important their success is to all of us. So here's a handy checklist that you can use this weekend to make an important difference. Remember, this is the make or break time for most Jersey Shore businesses.

Here are some things you can do...

Give it a try. We all know there is a local restaurant we've been wanting to try, but one thing led to another, and then there was the pandemic. Well, now's the time they'd love to see you. So, give it a try.

Invite some friends. Everybody wants to be at the jersey Shore in the summer. So invite some friends for a Jersey Shore dinner. Twice the fun for you, twice the local business.

Patience. We all get a little hot under the collar during tourist season, and most of the time as a last resort, and usually with pretty good reason. But this summer is different. The more patient we are, the happier the tourist, and a happy tourist spends!

That famous Jersey Shore generosity. When you do head to a local business, please remember what the servers have gone through during this whole thing, and remember, they may be working more tables than usual. show them your appreciation with some extra generosity if you can.

Make this a great weekend and keep doing your best to support local businesses. Thank you so much for showing true Jersey Shore generosity!
