Special Promotions Supporting Flood Relief
It is amazing seeing all the businesses in our area helping each-other out. Our downtowns will rebuild, but in the meantime put power behind your dollars and shop local. It is the best way to help current businesses that are open. A lot of our downtown is still accessible and open to the public. When visiting downtown, please be aware and be safe. Obey all detours and road closed signs. Avoid entering the floodwaters.
There are many open bars, restaurants and retails businesses in downtown Davenport, and many of them remain open and accessible. >> View the full list of open businesses <<
