Welcome Back Businesses!
After weeks of businesses closing their doors because of mandatory closures due to COVID-19, the time has finally arrived for Knoxville to being reopening. Beginning Friday, May 1, select businesses will be able to open their doors and operate at a reduced capacity. Please take note of all of the ways you can continue to shop local to stimulate our local economy.
During these times, it is important to remember that businesses are also discovering their new normal. We kindly ask for your patience with our local businesses as they continue serving you and learn how to operate under new regulations. When we all work together, we will get through the struggles of COVID-19 and help our community become stronger than before.
The following businesses have committed to reopening their doors to the public. If you are unsure if a business is operating under temporary hours, we recommend calling ahead before making your visit.
