Restrictions are lifting. People are starting to go out, back into old routines with friends and family. Restaurants and businesses are looking to refill their staffs and establishments. Some areas fared better than others, but overall businesses need our patronage. We’ve been shopping online and minimizing going out, ordering in and cooking amazing meals. This just means our favorite local establishments are ready and waiting for us to return. And now’s the time.

Make sure to check out our local scene. Downtown Longmont is full of locally owned businesses, each with their own unique offerings and charm. When you support local businesses you support yourself, keeping the local economy strong during economic downturns. You’re also helping your neighbor, your friends, and any family that lives in the area. Ultimately, it helps Longmont at large: repairing sidewalks and roads, refreshing landscaping and keeping our parks healthy and safe.
