Tysons-Based Gannett Launches Website to Support Small Businesses

Tysons-based Gannett has created a new initiative to help connect people to local businesses seeking support during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Support Local website lets people search for businesses from a list to buy gift cards. The website prompts people to share the news of their gift card purchases on social media.

The website has businesses from hundreds of cities across the U.S. So far, Austin, Texas has the most small businesses on the site (260).

The Tysons-area businesses include:

“We hope that our efforts will allow them to continue to serve their communities in the future,” according to the website.

Headquartered in Valo Park, the news media company includes USA TODAY and hundreds of daily local news brands.

Patrons or business owners can submit information about small businesses registered with Google to get added to the site.
