Hundreds of local businesses around the Dallas Fort-Worth area are asking the community to shop small during the current COVID-19 crisis.
Last month, Fort Worth Chef Jon Bonnell said although closing businesses and dining rooms has been the most difficult thing several owners have seen, it's the right decision for the community.
"Those who have closed are hoping we can limp along through this, and on the other side of this, come back to a vibrant restaurant scene one day. So please keep supporting your locals," Bonnell said.
