Like most others, canceled events and social distancing due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) have begun to take their toll on the small businesses in our community. While these steps are vital to slowing the virus, there are still many ways you can stay connected and help support Akron businesses/families.

Some ideas to help —

🖤Purchase gift certificates. This is a HUGE one. Buying a gift card or certificate now means revenue for the business and a night out when all of the craziness calms down. Something to look forward to! 📢 (Psst, we're currently offering 25% off all our gift cards!)📢

🖤Shop from home. Check social media and websites to find your favorite products and get them delivered. Remember, staying local is key!

🖤Order to go. When you can't dine in, you can still support your favorite restaurant. Also, take advantage of food delivery services such as UBER Eats and Door Dash.

Lastly, SHARE. SHARE. SHARE.

Share a post, tag a friend, leave a review, share your experience and help keep us and other local businesses in the minds of your friends and families.

Also, TAG a LOCAL business below — share any services, needs, promotions, etc.

We can help. We will get through this

Thank you Meri for a great time today and especially for accommodating our time change. We're very proud to say that we 'escaped' from the President's Bunker.
What a Blast. Katie was amazing from the time we booked the room to the very end. Thank you Katie for making our experience super memorable.
What a blast!!! Katie is amazing! She was so fun and helpful from start to finish. Thank you for the amazing experience.
Interesting and fun time, but do not over think it
Our room was booked for family members. Two strangers showed up and went in same room which made the experience awkward. Our family member that paid for the tickets did not complain about this mix up but I would have.
Went Saturday to Akron great time. Camden was fantastic, made it even more fun.
Twins
We had a great time at the Great Escape. Maddyson was awesome!
We had an excellent time for our first escape experience. Thank you Megan for helping make our groups experience in the library enjoyable.
Thanks Megan for making our night in the presidents bunker so much fun. I'm sure we will be back!!! Thanks, Barberton bunch
Stacy Beachy Sarah Pollock we need to do this
Just did the escape room with the Guilmettes and a couple of Yosts. Had a great time!!
