Stone’s Helps Local Restaurants

Posted by Sam Stone

With our Tech Deals and Local Meals

Stone’s was able to help dozens of local eateries and our local food bank while replacing client’s technology with the latest Award-winning Sharp MFP copiers and digital display boards.

Hit the Hardest

After COVID-19 began to spread and cause major shutdowns throughout our country, state, and local communities, it’s no secret the food and entertainment businesses were hit the hardest. Many tried to pivot to take-out only; however, some were forced to close because of their business model.

We love the diversity in eating establishments in our community and wanted to help as many people as would could, once businesses started to reopen. So, we partnered with our main copier supplier, Sharp, and asked what we could do to collectively make an impact in our community. This is where the Tech Deal and Local Meals idea came from.

Make it Simple

We wanted to keep it as simple and easy as we could. If a customer buys a Sharp A3 copier, Stone’s will give them up to $250 in gift certificates to their favorite restaurant or make a donation to the food bank. No strings attached. It’s that easy!


Our Tech Deals and Local Meals promotion ran from August through September and we gave nearly $5,000 in restaurant gift certificates and $2,000 to our local food bank. We’re always looking for ways to give back to the communities we serve. I’m proud of the job our sales team did to promote and engage buyers in this promotion.

The come slogan in 2020 was “We’re in this together”; we would like the slogan for 2021 to be “Let’s move forward together”.
