CHICO, Calif. -  Between the coronavirus pandemic, wildfires and Chico State students not returning to campus, many downtown Chico businesses have been struggling to keep their doors open.

But there is now a new website that was designed specifically to help these businesses out. 

It's a Downtown Chico online marketplace where businesses can easily sell their items.

The DCBA launched the new online market place Thursday.

Retail shops, restaurants and service providers can add up to 20 products and rotate them on a regular basis.

Teri Dubose, owner of Broadway Pawn Shop in Chico just signed up for the website.

She says many businesses like hers have been having a hard time with everything going on and she's hoping this will help.

"I thought it was a great idea, people are struggling and it gives people an opportunity to sell their products online and people can see all of the items the downtown Chico businesses have and I think its a great way for people to shop," said Dubose. 

On the website you can also order meals from restaurants, schedule your haircut or order products from your favorite salon.

You can purchase items online and then pick up in store or through curbside pick-up.

The goal is to also offer a downtown Chico delivery vehicle that would offer same day deliveries.

The DCBA is hoping to offer that in time for the holidays.

For many of these businesses that have signed up its their first time selling their products online.

The website officially launched yesterday with over 25 retail businesses, over 100 products and 50 restaurants.
