NEW FOR 2021!

  • Downtown Iowa City Market: The Iowa City Downtown District in collaboration with downtown retailers has launched a new one-stop online shop for shopping. As customers look to shop earlier and focus their spending locally this holiday season, the Downtown Iowa City Market will provide an easy, curated online shop for over 20 downtown stores in one location. This site is another initiative from the downtown district to help keep a focus on supporting local while recognizing that online shopping may be a popular option today. The Downtown Iowa City Market will allow customers to shop from a variety of downtown stores and select pick-up or free local delivery through the Downtown Delivers program. Additionally, the shop will be changing weekly as stores continue to add new items throughout the seasons.
  • Downtown Iowa City Delivers: In a continued effort to support the businesses in Downtown Iowa City, the Iowa City Downtown District introduced a new delivery service to provide the community with another opportunity to shop locally. Sponsored by MidWestOne Bank, Downtown Iowa City Delivers will bring downtown stores to your door at no additional cost with the official delivery vehicle provided by Toyota of Iowa City. The complimentary delivery will be offered in the Iowa City, Coralville, Solon, North Liberty, and Cedar Rapids area as an effort to help local businesses through these unprecedented times. The program will run through the end of the year and give customers the convenience of shopping from home while supporting downtown’s favorite small businesses. Orders eligible for free delivery will be accepted from the businesses listed here. Make sure to check out the business websites for the free delivery option or phone in your order and ask for your order to be delivered for free with Downtown Iowa City Delivers.
