Downtown Boise Community News
The safety of Downtown Boise’s residents, workers, and visitors is of the utmost importance to us here at the Downtown Boise Association. We want you to know that we are monitoring all recommendations and updates from government officials surrounding COVID-19. The first priority for everyone is to take appropriate steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our entire community remains healthy.
During this time of adjustments in social events, work schedules, and travel, we encourage you to remember our many small businesses in downtown and throughout our community and to continue supporting them even if you cannot visit them physically.
Follow Downtown Boise’s Facebook and Instagram for regular updates on how to support businesses downtown.
Here are the many ways you can support Downtown Boise businesses:
  • Shop online or via phone. Many of downtown’s retailers have online shopping available; our local and independent shops will help you get what you need via phone, FaceTime, or other methods, if necessary.
  • Purchase custom or corporate gifts from retailers who can handle orders over the phone or online.
  • If you typically order wholesale products with local retailers later in the year, place your orders now.
  • If you do not need anything specific at the moment but still want to support local, buy gift cards to spend later in our various storefront businesses.
  • You can buy gift cards for many local restaurants and cultural institutions, too.
  • For restaurants, order takeout or delivery and tip the same amount as you would dining in. Parking meters in front of downtown Boise restaurants will be closed to general parking and will be used as temporary to-go options for carry out or hand-delivered orders. Look for these conveniently marked curb-side pick up zones on each block!
