A Few Ideas to Support Burbank Businesses

Shop Local

Pay a visit to independently owned shops and markets for items you need at home. Burbank is packed with one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants such as in Magnolia Park.

Buy Gift Cards

Purchasing a gift card to your favorite store, theater, or restaurant is an immediate way to put cash into a business.

Shop Local Businesses Online

Consider buying items from your favorite retailer or small business online. Many merchants sell clothing, accessories, vintage, cosmetics, items for the home, and more.

Sign Up for Future Classes & Events

Sign up for classes or events at your favorite place of business. Planning activities a few months out will help to support your favorite activities and give you something fun to look forward to.

Be Patient and Say Thank You

When you do go to the store to buy what you need, be sure to say thanks to the employees who are hard at work.
