Love the Local

In Downtown Boulder, over 70% of our businesses are locally owned and operated. Many of the employees who work at these businesses are our family, friends and neighbors. This is our time to come together as a community and help. Business owners are taking into account the tremendous impacts - physical, emotional and financial temporarily closing their doors have on their workers and families.

If you can help, please consider these local online; buy gift cards NOW that can be used later; order takeout or delivery; show support through social channels.  Let the small business community know that we are in this together. Now more than ever #LoveTheLocal
