Open With Care for the Holidays
Downtown Alameda shops are open for the holiday season and they need your support more than ever. Local retailers continue to be Open With Care and provide a variety of convenient and safe ways you can shop safely:
- In-Person: Visit a local shop in person to browse the shelves and find that perfect gift. The reduction in customer capacity ensures that you’ll have a safe and enjoyable shopping experience.
- By Appointment: For a safe in-person shopping experience at the highest level, local shop owners will gladly schedule a private shopping appointment.
- Remote/Online Shopping: More comfortable shopping from home? Think local first. In addition to providing online stores, many of our local shops are providing personal shopper services via video chats, email, or text.
- Delivery/Pick-Up: For your convenience, businesses are offering curbside pick-up and some offer same-day local delivery.
Please continue to support local businesses in whatever capacity you feel comfortable with.

Now more than ever is the time to support local businesses.
You can also support those businesses not able to open due to the recent Stay-at-Home Order by ordering takeout & delivery at restaurants and purchasing gift certificates to businesses who are required to close their doors this holiday season.
When you support local businesses, you are also supporting your neighbors. Most small businesses are owned by people living in your community. These businesses provide jobs for your neighbors and offer support to local schools and nonprofit groups.
Show local businesses you care and that you still want them around in the new year.
