Garnish’s Fave Local Businesses
As a small business ourselves, we always want to be supporting other small businesses as best we can. We know how important it is to support your local community, and we know how meaningful it is each time one of you chooses US as your extension salon. A lot of small businesses are having a really tough time right now so we wanted to shine a little bit of light and love onto some of our very favorites.
Some of these businesses are still open right now and others are on hold until the stay at home order is lifted. Either way, we want to encourage you to shop small (at these businesses or your own faves), love on your local business neighbors, and do what you can as you can for your local community.

Next time you’re ordering food to-go or online shopping or ordering an art print for your home—check out all your local businesses first. Even though it’s sometimes more convenient or even a lower price point to shop big business, we wouldn’t be here today if all of you hadn’t chosen to do business with us. Share the love and shop small!
