The story is a common one.
Local businesses need support now and our hometown of Eugene is ready to show up for them.
The problem is…how do you do that during a pandemic?
Social distancing, freezes, shutdowns, limited relief funding, and the uncertainty of what the next day holds are huge challenges to cash flow for small businesses. Many are on the brink of closing their doors.
To shop safely, communities are turning to online shopping. The reality is, not every business is ready for that. That’s where we come in.
We built the Hometown Collective to solve three things:
- Support independent businesses in our hometown.
- Give our community a convenient and safe way to do that.
- Keep our businesses open and thriving.
