Times are undoubtedly tough for local businesses. Hoping to slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, stores are shortening their hours and people are staying at home. More important than ever is supporting local businesses, however possible.

So, The Daily Republic wants to hear from all businesses in Mitchell and the surrounding region. Banks, hair salons, restaurants, retail stores -- EVERYONE!

Send us your store hours, services you’re offering, specials you’re running — anything you’d like to let us know that would help inform the public of your business during these tough times.

Typically, these announcements would be considered paid advertising. But these aren’t typical times. It’s time to support the community and local businesses however we can, and this is a way our newspaper can step up during the pandemic.

Please keep the information within 100 words. Beginning Tuesday, March 24, we’ll assemble the information and put it all online and share with our readers. To contact The Daily Republic for this purpose, email us at dailynews@mitchellrepublic.com or call us at 605-996-5516.
