Want to support a Black-owned business? Check out this holiday gift guide

There's still time to do more holiday shopping.

CLEVELAND — While the deals from Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, that doesn't mean you're out of luck when it comes to some great holiday shopping. 

Local businesses throughout Northeast Ohio are still recovering from the ongoing pandemic and could certainly use the support this holiday season.

A sector of businesses particularly in need are minority and Black-owned companies. According to Nerd Wallet, 58% of Black business owners say their business’s financial health was “at risk” or “distressed” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

So, as the world continues to climb out of the quarantine we've been experiencing for the past two years, think about supporting the following Black owned businesses this holiday season and beyond.
