The COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily closed many small businesses in cities and towns around the world—some even permanently. You’ve been hearing it for months, but the one thing you can do to help them out is to #SupportLocal. So hop online to shop at these Saratoga stores that need your support—it may be just us locals that get them through this summer season.
