Open for Business Directory

Supporting local businesses that are keeping their doors open

We want to keep supporting local businesses! We have started this free listing of businesses that are currently open or are reopening soon. 

Whether you are offering takeout or delivery, reduced hours or waiving fees, we want our community to know you are open. 

We encourage everyone to continue social distancing, but to keep supporting our local economy in the ways you are able. 

We want to encourage everyone to think local! Complete this form to get your business added. We will try to have submissions posted within 24 hours.

Businesses that are currently open or are reopening soon and have an ad posted on UsedNanaimo.com (or any of our city sites) can redeem the promo code #OpenForBusiness by clicking here to receive a free AdBooster that highlights their ad in teal and moves their ad back to the top of the listing.

Things are rapidly changing. We will do our very best to keep this listing current, but there might be changes we have missed. Please check the business’s website to find their current hours or updates.
