Support Small Businesses in Northern Indiana

We established this site in early 2020 to help people know how to best support local businesses who were trying to stay open during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We still believe in supporting Small Businesses in our communities and in the South Bend-Elkhart Region. Please feel free to check out the listings. 

We celebrate the reopening of our communities and will no longer be adding listings to this site. We encourage you to “shop small” and continue to support local small businesses. 


The governor’s order to close restaurants and bars allows an exception for carry-out and delivery. A great excuse to skip cooking!


Many local storefronts have closed their doors for the time being, but some continue to sell their goods via online shops.


Emergencies still happen and people still require professional services. Find out what businesses are still operating.
