With the current stay at home order put in place, it is crucial now more than ever to support small and local businesses in Denver. Supporting your favorite fashion boutiques is no exception. Luckily for Denver locals, several boutiques across Colorado are keeping business going by allowing online orders — offering discount codes and free shipping — and providing curbside pick-up. Social media platforms are the main way boutiques and designers across the state have been keeping their loyal customers up-to-date on business changes, but also provide a way to inform customers on available products.
We have comprised a list of 20+ boutiques that are taking cautious and necessary measures to safely provide styles for Denver locals.
