As the COVID-19 pandemic carries on, an effort is underway to organize an inventory of open Richmond businesses to raise awareness and support among community members.

The Richmond City Manager’s Office’s Economic Development team has teamed up with the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and Richmond Main Street Initiative to create an online interactive map of these open local businesses.

Community members are encouraged by the coordinators to “explore this interactive map and find a business that is right for you.” Click here to check out the map, which upon clicking the respective circles on it, will show viewers the different businesses and contact info.

Other Richmond businesses that would like to be included on the interactive map can complete a short survey to be added to it.

Questions about the map can be directed to Thomas Omolo, management analyst, City Manager’s Office, Economic Development, by emailing [email protected].
