Have you heard? Due to Covid-19, we’ve temporarily changed our motto to “Stay In, Buffalo”.  And for the foreseeable future we will be posting content that shares how our community can continue to support local businesses while adhering to guidelines set by the CDC.⁠


On Wednesday April 15, 2020 Governor Cuomo announced an Executive Order that will go into place on Friday, April 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It requires New Yorkers to wear a mask or a face covering when out in public and in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained, such as on public transportation.

In light of this new development, we thought it might be useful to roundup local businesses and organizations who are making masks and face coverings.
