Love Local Initiative


Love your local businesses safely during COVID-19

Now more than ever, it’s important to shop local and support small businesses. In response to the challenging economic impacts of COVID-19 on small businesses, the City of Wayzata is working with Hennepin County to launch the Love Local Initiative, an effort to encourage people to shop at their local business districts while following COVID-19 safety guidelines this Holiday season and during the colder months ahead.

You can reduce the risk of COVID-19 while supporting local businesses by Online shopping, Ordering takeout and Wearing a mask.

In addition to marketing support, public space improvements including space heaters and hand sanitizing stations have also been temporarily installed. 

As public health guidance continues to change, the Love Local Initiative is responding as quickly as possible to be consistent with the latest COVID-19 public health recommendations and guidelines.
