As members of the Oakland County community and small business owners, we know how important it is to support our businesses during this challenging time.

More and more businesses here in Oakland County have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. We continue to support them as much as we can, buying local whenever possible. To help spread the support, we’ve compiled a list of 5 Oakland County businesses that you can support from home.

1. Griffin Claw Brewing Company

How You Can Help:  Order carryout meals, $20 fresh fruit and veggie boxes, and beer!

Link to Order:

Griffin Claw is offering a great selection of freshly-prepared dishes for daily curbside pickup, as well as $20 fresh fruit and vegetable boxes, packaged and draft beer, cocktail kits, and more! For those looking for a way to make Mother's Day special, order the Mother's Day brunch kit, complete with a "beer mosa" kit and fresh flowers from Eastern Market. 

Plus, when you support Griffin Claw, you're also supporting its community efforts. Griffin Claw has been doing its part by producing and donating hand sanitizer during the pandemic. In fact, each carryout order is accompanied by a free 2 oz. hand sanitizer!

2. The Italian Dish

How You Can Help: Shop online for yourself or send gifts to your loved ones

Link to Shop:

The Italian Dish offers a gorgeous selection of home goods, specialty foods and personal-care products from Italy and throughout Europe. Visit the shop's Facebook page or Instagram account for special discounts and one-of-a-kind gift ideas in all price-points, including Mother's Day treats and quarantine "survival kits" to let your loved ones know that you're thinking about them during this time.

3. The Fed

How You Can Help:  Order curbside takeout or delivery

Link to Order:

The Fed continues to cook up its delicious, farm fresh, locally sourced food. With a thoughtful menu of daily dinner selections and Sunday brunch, you can place a family-size order for curbside pickup or delivery....including beer, wine, and bubbles to-go! Don't forget to follow The Fed on Instagram or Facebook for photos that will inspire, from the food and drinks to the restaurant's decor.

4. Bella Artistry

How You Can Help:  Order your designer face mask

Link to Shop:

For those who love fashion and a little bit (or a lot) of bling, check out Bella Artistry's fabulous, hand-made face masks. Since it's likely that we will be wearing face masks for months to come, why not treat it as an accessory?! Bella Artistry's web store also offers one-of-a-kind, hand-embellished clothing, shoes and accessories. Browse the Gallery tab for inspiration and call the boutique to design your custom piece!

5. Toyology

How You Can Help:  Shop online to entertain the kiddos in your life

Link to Shop:

With locations in West Bloomfield, Royal Oak, Rochester, and Bloomfield Hills, Toyology is one of the few "bricks and mortar" toy stores in Oakland County. If you or someone in your life is challenged to keep kids occupied and happy during this time, consider ordering from Toyology's robust web store. The site offers unique toys, games, books, and more for ages newborn through 18...and you can even arrange to pick up your order curbside!  Plus, check out their blog for lists of the most popular products in different age groups.
