The small businesses in historic Old Town Pocatello invite locals to support locals. They are open, and they need you!

There are a variety of precautions being implemented by our business owners to keep you safe, their employees safe and continue to do business. They are taking precautions including hand sanitizer being available for customers and employees. Surfaces such as counters, door handles, credit and debit card machines are being wiped down even more often. Cleanliness is always a priority and even more so today.

Our restaurants invite you to call in your order for take-out or curbside pick-up. Delivery is also available by their staff, Pocatello Food Express, GrubHub or Door Dash.

Stop in to your favorite brewery and buy some swag or pick up some cans to go. Buy a new growler and have it filled with your favorite brew.

Shipping is available from merchant websites or messages via Facebook, if you prefer to shop from home.

Gift certificates are available, too. You can visit one of our shops or restaurants to purchase a gift certificate, or give them a call. When things settle down and we are back to business as usual, you can treat yourself and family to a special gift or night out at your favorite restaurant.

The owners of our shops, restaurants, salons, coffee shops, breweries and bars are local. They live here. They work here. They support the community. They donate to many causes in our community. They support efforts such as food drives, coat drives, Socks for Seniors — you name it, our merchants have supported it. Now is a great time for you to support them.

We encourage you to keep calm, use good judgment and help support our locally owned small businesses every time you can.

The events we have postponed will be rescheduled as quickly as possible. Our very talented event staff is working to be ready to “catch up” with some fun new events so you and your family can enjoy the charm and excitement downtown. Thank you for your support.
