Shop Local, Support Local

We think Sara Vaskov, owner of Hands Gallery, a local boutique in Downtown San Luis Obispo, member of the Downtown SLO Economic Activities Committee,  and Sip ‘n Saunter & Art After Dark participant said it best when she posted on March 22, 2020:

 

“As most of you know, we have had to temporarily close the doors to our Downtown store, Hands Gallery. We are happy to do so in hopes that our community can stay healthy & we will be able to open our doors sooner rather than later. But I’m not going to lie, being deemed a “nonessential “ business is a punch in the gut. We get it, buying the items we sell are not a necessity at this moment. But life is still happening. People are still having birthdays & anniversaries. People will graduate & get married — even though it might look a bit different this year.

– Our business is essential to Downtown San Luis Obispo. We have been here for 29 years and are determined to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
Our business is an essential form of income for our six employees that we have had to temporarily layoff.
– Our business is essential to my own family to provide food, shelter, college tuition, & dance lessons.
Our business is essential to provide a space for our artists to have a place to showcase their work.
Our business is essential to the community for being a fun and creative place to gather as well as generously & lovingly donating to as many school auctions and nonprofit events as possible.

Please keep all nonessential businesses in your thoughts. If you can, make an online or Instagram purchase. Purchasing gift cards to use at a later date is beyond appreciated as well. We realize this unprecedented historical event does not just affect us. We also need non-monetary support. Share our website, comment and like our posts, share our posts, or just give us an encouraging word. You all & this community mean the world to us.

 

 


 

 

We have wonderful retail stores in our community with local owners who love their customers and the community they live in. Please show them your support!

We’ve created resources below with information about the Downtown businesses offering online ordering, shipping, and a safe personal shopping experience.

Please call the business in advance as details and operations are changing rapidly.
