Please Stay Safe & Support Local.


Beginning June 1, Boulder County transitioned from the Stay at Home order to the Safer at Home model: https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home

The safety of our community is of utmost importance to the business owners, board and staff of the LDDA. We continue to monitor all recommendations and updates from government officials surrounding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), and we will inform our stakeholders of relevant changes. The first priority for everyone is to take appropriate steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our entire community remains healthy.

As we are all making adjustments to our attendance of social events, work schedules, and travel, please remember our many small businesses in Downtown and throughout our community and show your support, even at times you can’t visit yourself. 

Things you can do to support your wonderful local businesses:

  1. Give a Call. Many of our local shops will help you get what you need by phone, Facetime, or other methods,
  2. Get Carry Out. Or Delivery.  Tip the same amount as you would dining in. Ask if someone can bring it out to the car.
  3. Grab a Growler. Our local craft beverage makers have bottles, cans and growlers for you to enjoy at home.
  4. Ask About Curbside Pickup. Many food, beverage, and retail businesses are offering curbside delivery so you don't even have to get out of your vehicle. Call and ask. 
  5. Schedule a Future Service or Consultation. There are tons of service businesses in Downtown (Health & Wellness, Beauty, Automotive, Business Services, Repairs, Printing, etc.) Many of these services/consultations could be done remotely or via drop-off and pick-up.
  6. Buy Gift Cards. Support local and buy gift cards to spend later in our various storefront businesses. 
  7. Use your Downtown Gift Card. Participating Downtown businesses don't have access to the money until you make a purchase. Use 'em up! 
  8. Get Creative. Ask businesses if there are ways to support without in-person contact. Check availability of future appointments, memberships, digital classes, virtual appointments, consultations, etc.
  9. Treat Your Employees. Consider bringing lunch in from a local restaurant for your employees. 
  10. Tell Your Friends. Share this post and information widely so others know how to help. 

We created a list of businesses who are currently open and/or active. It's best to call and/or check businesses' social media and websites for up-to-date hours and information. To have your Downtown business information included or updated on this list, email information (hours, gift card sales, specials, delivery options, remote options, etc.) or changes to Colin.Argys@longmontcolorado.gov or call 303-651-8750. Also, keep your website, social media accounts, and online listings current and send any changes or updates to your respective contact lists.

It is important that we work together as a community for our health and well-being, remembering that our small businesses are our neighbors, friends and the foundation of Downtown Longmont’s economy. You can help them continue to stay successful while maintaining appropriate public health safety measures.

Business owners, the LDDA and the Advance Longmont Partners have created a coordinated response team that is meeting daily to work together to help local employers and employees during this time. We are actively tracking federal and state legislation that will provide relief funding and financing to employers and employees. Up-to-date information is available here and will be updated regularly.
