Stuck Inside with Cabin Fever? We’ve Got Your Guide to Supporting Local from Home!

Updated March 23, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. At this unprecedented time, Downtown Bridgeport businesses need your support more than ever. In this guide, we are sharing a variety of ways to “love your local” from home. On Monday, March 16, Gov. Ned Lamont announced an ordinance that would require all Connecticut bars & restaurants to temporarily close their doors in an effort to curb the growing risk of COVID-19 coronavirus. Many Downtown Bridgeport restaurants are open for pick up, delivery, and curbside service. You can support our Downtown retail offerings by purchasing online. While you can’t get that mani/pedi or shape up today, you can support our service businesses by purchasing a gift certificate or paying ahead for your next service.

We wanted to highlight the ways that you can “love your local” shop or restaurant while maintaining safe social distancing practices. Please help us to spread the love in colorful Downtown Bridgeport! Also, keep checking in here as we’ll update as often as possible.  If you don’t see your Downtown business or have a favorite we didn’t include, please send us a message to hello@infobridgeport.com.
