The DDP encourages people to shop, order

The Downtown Dover Partnership gave an update on which businesses are open. Here is their message:

In the midst of these trying times with the Corona outbreak and the regulations put in place by federal, state and local officials, some of our small businesses have been affected already and some have even had to temporarily close their doors. Our small businesses are the heart of our community and we at the Downtown Dover Partnership value each and everyone of them and their employees. We know that temporary closures can cause significant financial problems and can even cause some to have to close permanently. We are doing everything we can to relay valuable assistance information to them so we can help them, but we also need our local community to come together and really support our small businesses more than ever!

With all that said…this situation has not knocked us down and Downtown Dover is still open for business! Below is a complete list of the status [of] our local downtown businesses that sent us updates, so you reference when and where to shop, service and dine. Many of the businesses have gotten very creative in their ways to serve their customers safely and so please be creative in ways to give back! Take a look at the interesting illustration I have attached and see how you can show your support! I believe in the power of our community and I have faith that we can rise above this and come back stronger than ever!
