Our historic downtown recently experienced a devastating fire, but with the love and support of our community, we continue to move forward and celebrate the opportunities that lie ahead.

At the Downtown Merchant Association meeting this morning, we reflected on the the love, generosity, and support that has been shown through the Alexandria Community. Business owners, city officials, and individuals of the community gathered to not only mourn the loss of the historic downtown businesses, but also celebrate and rejoice in the opportunities ahead.

Countless businesses, state representatives, organizations, and members of our community have proved that we are not in this alone. Downtown Alexandria will continue to grow and we will come out even stronger!

There are some businesses downtown that will remained closed in the coming weeks as damage is assessed, but please know, many businesses downtown are open! The best way you can support us at this time is to continue to eat, shop, and enjoy Downtown Alexandria!

We extend out deepest gratitude to all emergency response personal involved. To help the people immediately impacted by the fire, monetary donations can be given at the link below.
