Local, Essential & Open: The directory of the local things you need [Free Read]

Local business operations are continuously changing during the coronavirus outbreak making it difficult to ensure that all listings remain up to date and accurate each day.

To provide a more reliable service to our readers and to local businesses, below you will find a directory of businesses that includes their essential information.   

This is free to read and free for local businesses to add their information.  

Before You Go

Many businesses are working so much that they don’t have time to update information on their websites, which is why we are providing a phone number for every business. 

We strongly suggest you call the business before ordering to ensure that hours of operation, offerings and services (take-out, delivery, curbside, shopping process) are accurate. 

Local Businesses:  We want your info!

Please send your business name, website address, hours of operation and best phone number to and we will post it for free. 

We reserve the right to reject a post if for any reason the information does not adhere to our policies.  

This directory is in alphabetical order, you can also use the keys CTRL-F on a PC or Command-F on a mac to search for a specific business. 

NOTE: The letter “D” in the hours of operation means they deliver.
