Navigating the uncertainty of our world during this time is clearly on everyone’s mind, especially your local small business owners. As a small business ourselves, we want to highlight some of the community builders around us and bring awareness to consumers of how you can help.
Small business owners are responding to changes and creating new normals for their brand. The large trend for businesses is to find their community virtually online and reduce the amount of human contact between customers and embracing social distancing and isolation needs.
Below are local businesses taking a stand and adopting new trends to virtually or from a distance support their customers during this time of fluidity and uncertainty.
TRUE BUCH KOMBUCHA
Draft and bottled True Buch Kombucha is available on True Buch’s website with free delivery for YYC residents. We all know we’re trying to keep our immune systems on fleek, so let's load up on probiotics and keep those bellies happy.
FIVE21 COFFEE ROASTERS
School’s out and we know those kiddos need fully caffeinated parents to get the job done. Coffee companies like Five’21 Coffee Roasters are roasting and delivering straight to your doorsteps on-the-daily (YYC only). Y’all can order online and have that caffeine kick within 24 hours.
Now that we’re living that self-isolation life we’ve got a lot more time on our hands. Why not get that sweat on right from your own living room?! Tom Clifford is giving free access to his Lawless Health app and will get you (virtually) set up on a home program. Completely complimentary for the next two weeks. And guys, if Tom Clifford isn’t a reason enough to join we don’t know what is. The guys’ ripped...and he’s Australian - we feel like that’s important to note. ;)
RVIITA ENERGY TEA
As the guys from Rviita Energy Tea like to say “keep calm and sip on.” The fact that Rviita is offering free deliveries on all local orders is definitely helping keep us calm. PLUS Rviita is adding free midnight samples so we can rest easy getting our quarantine and chill on.

Core Spin Club is among some of the incredible fitness studios taking to the gram’ to show some killer home bodyweight workouts to keep you in shape for when we can be one-meter apart again.
