Stores and businesses are finally reopening here in Tucson, but it’s doing so only at a gradual pace. It’s rather slow but a good sight to see that businesses are bouncing back from this crisis.
While we wait in our homes for the economy to rise back up and for our favorite restaurants and shops to re-open, we can take advantage of the gift we call the world wide web.
While some stores weren’t allowed to re-open physically, operations were allowed to continue virtually.
Here are 6 Tucson-based online stores you should definitely visit.
My Garage Rentals
The first Tucson-based online peer-to-peer rental platform; My Garage Rentals seeks to connect the Tucson community, making it easier to rent from friends, neighbors, and other locals nearby with just a message away.
Whether it’s tools, musical instruments, kitchen utensils, or even cars, My Garage Rentals is the platform to rent anything under the sun.
It can be used to make money out of the tools and things we only use occasionally by lending them to others for a price of your choice.
It can also be great leverage for those looking to save money instead of buying something only needed momentarily; obviously, when you rent you pay less and in turn, you save.
Another reason you would use My Garage Rentals for would be to explore new hobbies. Like renting out a camera for example and just testing the waters of photography first. A lot of people set out to try new hobbies and end up letting go mid-way, already spending more than they should have.
I can go on and on about how My Garage Rentals is quite an efficient platform, there are countless benefits. But we’ll leave you to imagine and discover for yourself as you give this website a try.
Pueblo Vida Brewing
Recently nominated for “Best Brewery of 2020” by Tucson Weekly, Pueblo Vida Brewing is known for its high-grade brewed craft beers.
Their tap list boasts of a wide variety of unique flavors ranging from their Bavarian-style Hefeweizen to Coffee Brown Ale.
Their beers are sold in cans, with each flavor owning their distinct artistic design.
And if you just can’t get enough of their amazing brew, you can always order an entire 1/6bbl keg.
We wouldn’t be giving Pueblo Vida Brewing enough justice if we did not acknowledge their kind and accommodating crew, which you will meet as you pick-up your order.
The staff shows how Pueblo Vida Brewing does not only desire to sell you their great tasting craft beer but that they seek all the more the satisfaction of the local community with every pick-up.
