We invite you to Shop Small Online as Shopping Small adds up to Big Things. The coronavirus and our state’s wildfires have upended daily life in Oregon, with travel and tourism being the hardest-hit industries. Small businesses have been crippled and are counting on all of us to rebuild, promote, and sustain our resilient communities.
America Runs on Small Businesses and small businesses are the retail backbone of our communities and our economy. Shop Small is a nationwide movement dedicated to supporting thousands of small businesses and encouraging shoppers to think small.
Of course, we’d love to have you stay with us, let us provide some of the best hospitality Oregon has to offer, eat our home-cooked meals and get the inside scoop to the area’s best attractions and shopping. But if traveling isn’t in your plans just now and you need some sweet gifts, or something for yourself, we asked our Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild innkeepers to share a few local stores that have an online option so as to extend a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.
The delectable, small batch spreads from Mt. Hope Farms whose goal is to provide customers with a quality product that can be traced from farm to table, are included in their gift boxes. And then there are the handcrafted fudges and truffles made by the The Brigittine Monks in Amity, Oregon. These decadent indulgences are to be given, savored, shared and send.
While online you might consider purchasing a gift certificate for a stay at MaMere’s Guest House, either for yourself when you’re ready to travel again, or as a thoughtful gift.
Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is ready to share Oregon with you: it’s environment, culture, and heritage. Combine gracious hospitality with ambiance at an inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.
Wildfire and Air Quality Update: While the wildfires burning across Oregon are not completely extinguished they’re under control and cooler temperatures, good, strong onshore flow and most importantly, some measurable rain will help flush out the atmosphere, get rid of the last of the wildfire smoke.
Hospitality Update: Oregon is one of the top states where it looks like social distancing is working. Our inns have been proactively doing everything in our power to keep you safe, welcome you back, as travel restrictions are being lifted. Not sure if your favorite inn is open? Give them a call as they just might be.
