Default Support small/local business shout-out thread

I guess this is normally reserved for the forum, but hopefully the mods let this stand. I wanted to make a thread where CPers could give a shout out to their own small businesses that are still trying to business through the this and maybe we cool things that local businesses are doing through these times as well.

I'm going to start this with Calgary photographer Neil Zeller who's running around doing "porchraits". He'll come by, maintain social distancing and take photos of you/family/pets and he does this by donation (suggested $25). A nice way to breakup a day of lockdown and a couple nice photos to remover these times by!

I've spoken with other CPers getting beer delivered through some local brewers, picking up food or having it delivered from some local places and overall, just think there are some small businesses that need our support. Let's put them in one thread and hear who they are!

Good call!

Because small local businesses are the ones who are going need all of our help the most right now.

Support your fellow local businesses struggling through this!

I don’t live in Calgary but we’re doing this in our own community, as all are. I hope it gains momentum in Calgary, too.

Sammys Pizza - easily the best pizza in the south by far, and runner up is Tommy's Pizza on Elbow Drive

Just ordered a fancy Japanese knife from Kent of Inglewood. He said on Twitter he's seen an 80-90% decline in business.
https://knifewear.com/

And for a $25 donation to Fresh Routes he'll deliver it by bike.


Also been following along with all the breweries doing delivery and now making sanitizer

Annex worked with Two Rivers Distillery on the sanitizer as well.

Sammy's is good pizza, but Bowtie is easily the best in the deep SE. Harry's Natural Meats in mahogany for a butcher (they only do curbside pick up right bow) has the best ribs in the city and pick up a pack of their chipotle bacon sausage too.

Also a friendly reminder to buy your wife/girlfriend some flowers!

My brother got some of the Annex sanitizer at Co-op. They had a decent supply at the Midtown location.

You can pick up (or get delivery through the apps) from Madison 12/12 in Inglewood.

I ordered some beer from The Establishment. Bought enough to get free delivery, highly recommend if you like their brews. The guy that delivered was from Cabin Brewery. Awesome they are working together to get through this.

I also know a photographer who is doing the porch sessions, Lance Ipema. He has been taking out family pictures for a long time and takes some great shots. If you are in the deep south keep your eye on his Facebook feed.

You ordered a Japanese Knife from Knifewear. Kent of Inglewood deals with shaving.

The drop in sales is unfortunate. I had a class from there cancelled last month and have dropped a substantial amount of cash there this month hoping he comes out the other side in all this. Stellar owner and A++ store.

Ordered Chinese from the local shop last night. Delicious as always. Called direct over using skip the dishes to put more money in their pocket.
