According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster, and for those that do, only 29% were still operating after two years.

As South Florida recovers from Irma, we’re compiling a list of local businesses that are now open to the public and encouraging the community to shop local whenever possible.  Most places are accepting cash only.

The spreadsheet is open to the public to view and comment.  The spreadsheet is organized by tabs at the bottom indicating the type pf businesses open.

As you know of others who have restored power or are operating with a generator, please let us know and consider supporting local businesses for any purchases.
