Downtown Joplin Alliance COVID-19 Update
Downtown Joplin Alliance is closely monitoring Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its impact on the Joplin community. During this time it is even more important to remember that our local boutiques, restaurants, bars, and other small businesses are all being deeply affected by these recent developments and to support them through online purchasing, curbside and delivery options, and other appropriate means.
Follow our facebook pages for updates on our specific events including the Empire Market and Third Thursday.
We encourage all organizations and community members to be mindful of information disseminated by local, state, and federal health organizations such as social distancing and wearing a mask. Do your part to protect yourself and others.

Reflection of Joplin
This is critical to business retention and recruitment efforts. When a professional or company is looking at Joplin for potential relocation, they look at quality of life. Included in quality of life is downtown — is it healthy and viable, or does it represent local disinterest and failure?
There are a number of incentives to downtown development, including historic tax credits. Want to contribute to the environment and sustainability? The greenest buildings are already built.
Downtown is Unique
Downtown Joplin offers the most unique shopping and dining experiences in the region — Hackett’s Hot Wings, Red Onion Cafe, Wilder’s, M&M Bistro, Club 609, Joplin Ave Coffee, Frosted Cakerie — there are just so many to choose from and we haven’t even mentioned the night life!
The downtown buildings hold our history and heritage.
