Downtown Holland Launches New Websites to Connect Customers and Businesses

Downtown Holland has launched two new websites to make it easier for customers
to shop online and order take-out from their favorite Downtown Holland businesses while COVID-
19 restrictions are in place. The new “Shop Downtown Holland” (www.shopdowntownholland.com)
and “Dine Downtown Holland” (www.dinedowntownholland.com) websites are a one-stop
destination to easily connect customers with locally-owned businesses in Downtown Holland.
On the “Shop Downtown Holland” website, customers can decide which category of merchandise
they are shopping for, select a particular retailer and then be immediately linked to that retailer’s
online store or Facebook page for information on placing an order for curbside pick-up, shipping or
local delivery. Likewise, the “Dine Downtown Holland” website allows customers to see which
Downtown Holland cafes and restaurants are currently open for takeout services, with direct links
to information for placing takeout orders online or over the phone.
“While our Downtown Holland businesses are not open in the traditional sense, they are still eager
and excited to serve their customers,” said Downtown Holland Marketing Coordinator Kara de
Alvare. “A lot has changed due to COVID-19, but our merchants remain as committed as ever to
providing customers with the unique merchandise options and excellent customer service that
Downtown Holland is known for. We want to spread the message that our locally-owned
businesses are still here and they need your support now more than ever.”
Most Downtown Holland retailers offer online shopping on their store websites or via their
Facebook or Instagram pages. Customers can shop directly online, comment on social media or
contact the store via phone or email to place an order for curbside pick-up, shipping or local
delivery. Store hours and offerings will vary. Downtown Holland restaurants and cafes are currently
open for takeout only, with many restaurants accepting online orders and others taking orders over
the phone or via email. Curbside pick-up is available at most restaurants, while others require
customers to come inside to pick up their order. Social distancing and other safety measures are
being undertaken by all businesses and customers coming inside to pick up orders are asked to
wear a mask in consideration of their own safety and the safety of others.
