COVID-19: Supporting Downtown Businesses

Downtown Businesses Are Still Working to Serve Our Community. While we all figure out how to navigate through this uncharted territory, we want to encourage everyone to continue to support all of our Downtown Businesses – they are the lifeblood of our Downtown Community. Please continue to patronize their businesses – whether it be a gift card, takeout, curbside pickup, delivery or online shopping. We have compiled a list of businesses and the services that they are offering.  Just as COVID-19 continues to change, this list and the info is also changing daily. We will do our best to keep it updated. This is not a comprehensive list of every business downtown – we are still working hard to add everyone.

Please use this resource to continue to support our downtown community. Although it may be in a different format than we are all used to, there are still plenty of ways to FinditHere. #DTWS <3 <3
