Over the next few weeks, our small businesses could take a bit hit with the coronavirus.
Public health and safety is a primary concern.
The Orangeville BIA is suggesting small businesses could get the word out about what they are doing to protect customers while they are inside their establishment.
Some businesses may choose just to shut down altogether for this time period.
Orangeville's Winter Market has also been cancelled until the Town resumes regular operations in Town-owned facilities.
Anyone who is wanting to make a connection with any of the market vendors for the purposes of collaboration, can let the BIA know and they will help you connect.
You can call the BIA at 519-942-0087.
Some businesses are already posting messages on their social media, that they are trying to help their customers in more alternative ways.
Some local companies are closing their storefronts and providing order and pick up services to limit contact.
BIA General Manager Allison Scheel says small businesses are in this together - supporting each other makes everyone stronger.
