As we continue to practice social distancing, our favourite local workout studios, restaurants, cafes and bakeries have had to adjust the way they operate their business to the temporary new way of life. Although we can’t walk in and sit down at a cafe or workout at the gym how we used to, local South Fraser businesses have come up with creative ways to help sustain themselves, all while continuing to serve the South Fraser region community. So during these uncertain times, it’s important that we come together to support these businesses that make our South Fraser community so unique! Read our list below of creative ways to support local businesses in the South Fraser while we continue to do our part and social distance. Have a suggestion you’d like added to the list?
