Support Local!

Let's take care of each other. Our local small businesses need us more than ever.

Are you looking for ways to support local businesses during this unprecedented time? There are so many various industries affected by Covid19, and we are looking for ways to support the businesses that often support us. Our local businesses do so many things for our community and now is the time for us to give back to them. Countless times our businesses  step up to sponsor our school events, area fundraisers and give to important area outreaches. Let's find ways to show love to the businesses in our community. Here are some ways that some of our area businesses are finding ways to still offer services. 

Leawood Family Care 

We are committed to providing excellent care to our patients while also considering the health and safety of our patients, physicians, and staff. We understand the fear and concern surrounding COVID-19. We are here for you, and we know your concerns, so we are making life a little easier. Telehealth visit is now available. You are able to connect with our physicians and nurse practitioners from the comfort of your home by requesting an appointment. 

Elite Physicals

Concierge care is the secret to what sets Elite Physicals apart from its competitors, and it is also what is making Elite not only survive but thrive during this troubling time. Through the executive physical, patients and their families are able to utilize concierge care for any health-related issues that arise throughout the year. After a patient receives their results, they have immediate access to specialists and to primary care through Dr. Neal Erickson and his team. The team utilizes any communication platform the patients request to get them the care they need, all while respecting the need to avoid crowds and embrace social distancing.

PrairieBrooke Arts

We can’t wait to have art lovers back in our Downtown Overland Park gallery. In the meantime, our art consultants are working virtually with clients designing art for corporate and residential art projects across the city. See you at the gallery soon. In the meantime, stay tuned for special promotions and updates on our popular Spring Trunk Show at www.pbarts.com

Children's Mercy

During this rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, Children’s Mercy is taking all precautions to protect our patients, families and staff. Angela Myers, MD, MPH, Children’s Mercy Director, Division of Infectious Diseases, has tips for social distancing during this challenging time. 

“Even if you and your family are feeling well, it is important to stay home,” Dr. Myers says. “This is the time for you to catch up on your Netflix or play board games with your kids or make brownies. Do all the other fun things you can think to do while at home.”

In addition to avoiding crowded areas, Dr. Myers also reminds everyone they need to be washing their hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using alcohol hand gel. For additional information on how to keep you and your family safe, visit childrensmercy.org.

Strategic Financial Partners

The current coronavirus pandemic and corresponding stock market volatility creates a lot of fear for Americans. As the owner, CEO and president of Strategic Financial Partners Kansas City, I have 32 years of experience helping clients weather the storm, and I strive to make lemonade out of lemons. Proper financial management is helping our clients through this scary time, with diversified portfolios that consist of annuities with guarantees, fixed income, and high-quality US dividend paying equities. Rebalancing at this time helps to harvest tax losses that can be used to offset gains and lower taxes. Stocks with stop loss provisions provide exceptional security. Products that provide guaranteed income for life are extremely reassuring. We have increased our personal communication with our clients because we care. We want to work with them and build lifetime relationships because to us, they are family.  Call 913-322-9177 or email is beckert@sfpkc.us.

How Can You Help Our Local Businesses?

  • Purchase a gift card from a local store to use at a later date. This gives the local business revenue to utilize now, and gives the customer something to look forward to spending at a later date.
  • Write a positive review for your favorite local spots. So often we visit locations and don't think of writing a positive review for that company. A positive review can boost the company's ratings and may encourage someone to be a future client or customer. 
  • Do you love a local small business? Well shout it from the rooftops! Personal referrals are one of the best ways to obtain new clients or customers. Share on your social media pages about why you love a favorite local business and make a conscious effort to refer your favorites to your friends and neighbors. 
  • Visit the Leawood Chamber of Commerce website to discover ways to support local businesses. Think beyond just curbside pickup. 
  • Sign-up for local online instructional classes from local musicians, artists and more. Now is your opportunity to learn from incredibly talented people and support them financially at the same time.
