It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a significant toll on local Sparks and Reno business owners, especially restaurants and bars. Even as some new eateries open, many other long-time favorites have closed their doors. In this environment, we believe it’s important to support local businesses and organizations to help keep them alive. After all, one of the things that make our community such a wonderful place to live are great places to eat, drink, shop, and play.
Showing love to the Sparks and Reno business community
For our part, we’ve continued our partnership with LoLo Gifts to send our clients more than 50,000 gifts in support of a variety of Sparks and Reno business operations. Some of the organization’s we’ve sent gifts from include:

All of these businesses work with LoLo Gifts as vendors. LoLo’s mission is to support independent local businesses by making sending a gift to a locally owned business as easy as buying a gift card to a corporate chain.
What can you do to support Sparks and Reno business owners? Here are a few ideas:
- Buy gift cards
- Give some love on social media
- Order take out or delivery from your favorite restaurant
- Shop online locally
- Tip liberally and often!
- Call your local Dickson Realty agent and ask to be added to their LoLo monthly gift list.
If we want the businesses we love to be around for longer than COVID-19, then we all must do what we can to support them now. Join us in showing some love for local businesses!
