These are uncertain times. Governments, everywhere, are making difficult decisions to slow the spread of the global pandemic COVID-19 and keep the people safe.
We are all social distancing, which means our dollars have slowed down into feeding the local economies - your cafés, bookstores, gyms, wineries... These are the times that cripple your favourite locally owned independent small businesses. Please support your local small businesses during these times by shopping online, buying gift cards, or supporting through their delivery services.
While the need is most immediately obvious, the benefits of shopping small extend beyond times of crisis. Small business is important to the economic and social fabric of our society. When you shop local, your dollars stay in the community and help local development. It is the multiplier effect... for example, we buy ingredients from local producers, we use local insurance brokers and we hire local design firms... all building symbiotic relationships that help the whole business community prosper.
Here are a few ideas to help support QB Gelato & Café.
Buy on-line gift cards - these gift cards can be redeemed on-line as well as in shop.
Consider purchasing prepped grab-and-go meals. QB offers soups, Cheesemaker's Mac & Cheese, baked breads, sour-cream waffles, Dessert In A Box, and keep your eye open for QB's 3-course Christmas Eve dinner box!
Work in the Landmark District area - order lunch on-line and we'll deliver it to your office. Easy. Convenient.
