“The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges for businesses across the country, including those in Downtown Evansville. Small businesses provide the uniqueness that make our community different from other cities,” said Josh Armstrong, president, EID.

“Many of our Downtown businesses search out local products and ingredients, magnifying the economic impact of consumers choosing small businesses,” he added.

With Governor Holcomb’s announcement of Indiana moving into Phase 3 of the “Back on Track Indiana” plan as of Friday, May 22, retail stores are now able to operate at 75% capacity.
