Takeout, curbside pickup, delivery and online shopping options for downtown Chattanooga restaurants and retailers are now listed at www.DowntownChattanooga.org.

Also, community members can win gift cards to local eateries by getting social with their takeout purchases.

With many restaurants and retailers are changing their days and hours of operations or even closing altogether in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, River City Company’s Downtown Chattanooga Restaurant and Retail Directory provides a single location for information about how these establishments are operating.

“During this uncertain time, we know Chattanoogans want to support their local restaurants and retailers in ways that are safe and help ensure that their favorite shops and eateries are still in business after this pandemic passes,” says Amy Donahue, director of marketing and communication for River City Company.

“With that in mind, Downtown Chattanooga restaurants and retailers have ways for you to support them during this time. Whether it’s grabbing takeout curbside or purchasing merchandise online, there are many ways you can support local businesses during this time.”

Community members who support local restaurants can win gift cards for doing so. Instagram users can share a photo of their takeout from a Chattanooga restaurant on their personal account using the #TakeoutTonightCHA hashtag and tagging the @DowntownChatt account.

Every week, River City Company will be randomly selecting someone who has shared a photo to receive a gift card valued at up to $100 to a downtown Chattanooga restaurant.

The Downtown Chattanooga Restaurant and Retail Directory and #TakeoutTonightCHA challenge will be ongoing until current social distancing restrictions are eased and restaurants and retailers can begin to operate in a more normal manner.
