While we all have a lot to worry about during these challenging times – there is one thing we can take a minute to celebrate. A new term we have coined at the Arvada Chamber is CREATIVE COMMERCE. This is the innovative moment where out of necessity or creativity a business finds new ways to activate through supply chain improvements, staff engagement, creative communication, or technology enhancements, with the possibility of implementing ecommerce accountants. The Arvada Chamber commends all of our local businesses who are flipping the normal way of doing things to develop new and exciting strategies to help their business weather the storm.
We are committed to highlighting this innovation and tell the stories of resilience in our community. If you have a story to share about how your business is practicing creative commerce please tell us through this form. We will share your story below and through other community-wide channels. #WeGotThisArvada!

They will also be given a link to Venmo to “tip their bartender.”
- “Support Our Bartenders” Campaign: We are asking you to donate money, for a chance to win wine, whiskey and more. We have amazing prizes being donated (list to follow) and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the bartenders at The Bluegrass Lounge, and The Arvada Tavern. Let’s show them how much we love and appreciate them while they are forced to close their doors. For every $10 you donate, you have a chance at one or more of the amazing wine or whiskey combos.

Additionally, we have started moving inventory to social media and e-commerce platforms. Gift certificates for our shop are available online, and we are selling natural stone bead bracelets at $20 each, including shipping, in an effort to give our community near and far an opportunity to support us. The idea behind the bracelets is that one purchase turns into labor for our staff and our local post office, plus income flow to our suppliers, and so on. All of our bracelets are handmade by our staff with natural stone beads (no plastic, no glass).
