Let’s Work Together – Thank You for Shopping Local & Supporting our Businesses

We know people are eager for businesses to reopen. We would like to remind everyone to be patient and kind to one another. This is new territory for everyone, but we’re all experiencing this together.

Businesses have been working around the clock, implementing additional measures to ensure customer safety. Employees are just now starting to get back to work so there may be more traffic and longer wait times, but just remember these employees are your neighbors. Be patient as businesses rebuild their stock and supply. Please adhere to protocols set forth by businesses as they’re doing everything they can to serve and support our community.

We hope you’ll join us in supporting our businesses by dining and shopping local. Thank you, Dana Point!
