Support Local

Downtown Knoxville is a strong community of locally owned businesses working diligently to help keep our community safe during this time of uncertainty brought by COVID-19. 

We've collected information on downtown restaurants providing curbside, takeout, and delivery, as well as online shopping options from downtown retailers. While this is a constantly changing list, we will do our best to keep it up-to-date (last updated on 3/28). You can also support all of our downtown businesses by buying gift cards now to use later, writing positive online reviews, and sharing other ways you support your favorite local businesses and their employees.

Downtown Knoxville’s local businesses are key to its unique charm and character. Through this pandemic, please support them however you can.
