Shop Local In The Melrose Arts District For The Holidays

Did you know, for every dollar spent at a small business, approximately 67¢ stays in the local community? Even if you shop at a franchise, they are typically locally-owned, so shopping in your neighborhood assists your community.

This holiday season, please consider supporting the unique, eclectic stores and businesses that make up the Melrose Arts District. A good percentage of our businesses are operating, offering either limited in-store shopping (retail), take-out & delivery (restaurants), by appointment visits (services), online sales, etc. Other ways you can support your favorite local businesses include the following:

  • Buy a gift card: You can give local restaurants more money now by purchasing gift cards you can use later when the restaurants re-open for indoor or outdoor dining.
  • Holiday shop: Rather than purchase from Amazon, buy your gifts from Melrose stores and give them a boost.
  • Tip well: Many servers, baristas, and delivery people have been out of work at some point this year. If you can afford it, leave a big tip and make someone’s day.
  • Schedule and pay for future services: While most salons are closed, some will allow you to pay for services in advance. You could pay for haircuts for the next year and have the salon withdraw from your account as you go.
  • Leave a positive review online: Many people are looking for safe places to eat and shop right now. Leave a positive review of your favorite restaurants and local shops to tell your community how they’re keeping customers safe and healthy during the pandemic.

Below is a list of the stores, by category, that are currently open for business in the Melrose Arts District. Please check before visiting as hours may have changed or they may only be open by appointment.
