Stay Safe, Support Local

 

 

The City of Pleasanton values our local business community and we share in concerns on how to navigate through this time of uncertainty and hardship. While we ask our residents to adhere to the Statewide Shelter in Place order, we acknowledge the need to obtain daily meals and essential supplies for your household.

In order to support Pleasanton businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Pleasanton has launched #PleasantonTogether, a Support Local campaign focused on supporting businesses that are open to provide goods and services during the Shelter in Place Order. We ask our community to follow directions from public health officials regarding social distancing and proper health etiquette if and when visiting businesses or going outdoors for physical activity. 


To support Pleasanton businesses that are open during the Shelter in Place Order, the City has partnered with Bludot to create an interactive business listing with mapping features. See the listing HERE or visit www.cityofpleasantonca.gov/openforbusiness. The listing includes essential businesses, identified in the County Health Order, that are open during the Shelter in Place Order including restaurants offering take-out and delivery and retail for curbside pick-up. The listing also includes businesses that were required to close their doors due to the Shelter in Place Order and are now providing online orders for delivery, curbside pick-up, or virtual services such as classes. Those businesses are located under the category, Retail/Online Non-essential. Home-based businesses are not included in the listing.

Our local businesses need your support now more than ever. If you are refraining from restaurant take-out during the Shelter in Place Order or would like to support a restaurant or business listed, please consider purchasing a gift card to support now and use later.


First, prioritize and take all health and safety precautions for yourself, your family, and others in our community. Our community health as a whole depends on working together, and our small businesses are vital to the City of Pleasanton’s economy. We want to ensure that they stay successful while maintaining appropriate public health safety measures. If you are not able to visit stores and restaurants physically, there are several ways you can support them: 

  1. Shop online or via phone. Many  Downtown Pleasanton and Stoneridge Shopping Center  businesses have online shopping available. 
  2. Buy a gift card. If you do not need anything specific at the moment, but still want to support local, buy gift cards to spend later. You can buy gift cards for many local restaurants, too. 
  3. Support local restaurants by ordering takeout or delivery and tip the same amount as you would dining in. See our Open for Business page for a list of Pleasanton restaurants that are open. Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, Pleasanton Downtown Association, and Visit Tri-Valley have also compiled lists of restaurants that are providing take out with curbside pick-up or delivery with current operating days and hours.  
  4. Follow, like, and stay informed with your local businesses on Social Media. Many stores and restaurants post up-to-date information on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Share this information widely so others know how to support local.
