About Coronavirus 2020

Washingtonian is keeping you up to date on the coronavirus around DC.

While the closure of non-essential storefronts has affected local retailers and small business owners, you can do something to help: shop local.

Spearheaded by DC jeweler Mallory Shelter of Shelter, a group of small business owners and retailers in the DC area have come together to host a Small Business Saturday April 25. All groups participating in the virtual event have been affected by the Covid-19 crisis, whether that means shuttering their storefronts or shifting operations. Meanwhile, they still have to pay overhead and operating costs.

That’s where you come in: The group is encouraging folks to spread the word about shopping local on April 25.  Participating retailers—the majority of which are women-owned—include the likes of Salt & Sundry, Shop Made in DC, She Loves Me, Ivy Wild, Politics & Prose, the Outrage, Underbares, Lettie Gooch, and Dio Wine Bar, and more. And if you spend $100 or more at Shelter, Made in DC, Appointed, or Ivy Wild, you’ll get a $10 gift card to one of those stores.
