This is a very challenging and uncertain time for our city as a whole and Downtown Cape in particular. We are all taking precautions to stop the spread and minimize the impacts of COVID-19. On this page, you will find information and resources that seek to inform the public and provide support for our local businesses. Please note: links are in red.

During this time of unprecedented health, social, and economic uncertainty, we’d like to encourage you now more than ever to shop locally! As more people practice social distancing, small businesses will feel the impact. Many local businesses in the Cape Girardeau area are still open and need your support and are offering delivery, curb-side to go, and special online sales. Continue to check out our Instagram stories or follow us on Facebook as we help share that info with you!

In the best interest of our community, we are temporarily closing the Old Town Cape office. You may call the office at 573.334.8085 and leave a voicemail or reach out to us by email at We will keep you posted once the decision is made to re-open the office.
