Shop Local Steamboat
As our community faces the many challenges of COVID-19, Steamboat Springs’s local businesses have taken a hit to keep our community safe. Right now, small businesses need us more than ever. Here are 5 reasons to shop local throughout the year!
1. More Money Stays in the Community
Studies show that $.70 out of every $1 spent local stays local. Compare that to $.43 out of every $1 spent at national chains!
2. Sustainable and environmentally friendly
Shipping costs across the country create an estimated 1 billion metric tons of C02 per year. Shop local, ship less.
3. Support local nonprofits
Did you know that small, locally owned businesses donate 250% more than large, national businesses to community causes?
4. Tax support for city services
Shopping locally funds schools, police, fire services, parks and many other amenities you enjoy in town!
5. Promote competition and diversity of business
Shop local to support businesses and drive economic vitality to create more choices and business diversity.
Steamboat Springs has a large selection of retail stores to fit every shopper’s need! Visit our shops in person to browse their goods or opt for contactless shopping. That’s right, it’s never been easier to shop locally online, over the phone, or by making an appointment to have the store to yourself. Many of our stores will also deliver curbside to your car. Bring a piece of Steamboat into your home this season.
Show your love for your favorite restaurants! Steamboat’s restaurants are ready to continue serving you. Our restaurants are offering outdoor dining, takeout, curbside pickup, take and bake, and delivery. Even if you’re not ready to dine outside this winter or visit an eatery, you can buy a gift card now to use later.
Health and Wellness
There’s never been a better time to give yourself, a friend, or a loved one the gift of wellness. Whether you’re interested in physical wellness including high-impact training and a yoga flow or rejuvenation and relaxation with a facial and massage – Steamboat has you covered. Purchase a gym membership or take advantage of virtual experiences, or visit one of our many spas this winter to help you find that ultimate high.
Immerse yourself in Steamboat’s rich culture by visiting one of our many museums, galleries, or escape room. Winter outdoor experiences are better than ever, choose from skiing, dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, fly fishing, or even ice fishing!
