Historic Downtown Manassas was an active, vibrant community with one-of-a-kind small businesses: delicious restaurants, unique shops, and local service providers. However, once the COVID-19 outbreak hit Virginia, downtown became a ghost town. Retail stores are closed and restaurants are only existing only via takeout or delivery orders. With mandatory closures or limited sales capacities, many small business owners are struggling to keep their businesses alive. These entrepreneurs do not have the resources of larger companies or franchise operations. The owners, operators, and employees of these small businesses are our neighbors, and they need your support during this difficult season.
