Who ever thought that something as routine as a hair cut would be such a big deal? Last week, after four months, I finally was able to get my hair cut. It was a bit different, I had to wear a mask, as did my hairdresser, and there were very few customers in that salon, all well-spaced. Beyond getting my hair done, I was very happy to be able to spend money locally. As much as our lives are restricted right now, local businesses are the backbone of our communities. Small businesses are the first to step up with a coupon of discount when we are fundraising, we cannot forget their generosity.
Who knows when things will be back to normal, or if we will once again have to adopt a “new normal”. My advice is, if you can, spend locally.
