Support Downtown businesses during COVID-19

Support Downtown businesses during COVID-19


During this time of adjustments, we encourage you to remember our many small businesses in Downtown and throughout our community that employ your friends, family, and neighbors - and to continue supporting them as much as possible. There are many things you can do to support our businesses, including:

  • Purchasing gift certificates from restaurants and retailers
  • Shopping Downtown retailers online or call to place an order
  • Tipping on takeout and delivery food the same as you would if you were dining in (you can also directly tip bartenders, servers, and chefs/cooks online via Tip Your Bartender)
  • Share this page to encourage others to support Downtown businesses

Please note the following list will be updated as more information becomes available. Many businesses offer the ability to order gift certificates over the phone as well. For a full list of Downtown eateries, click here, and for a full list of retailers, click here. For those looking to get out of the house, we've put together a complete list and Google Map for public art exhibits in Downtown which can be viewed here. And don't forget about our Socially Distanced Social Hours!
