Open for Business

Ocala/Marion County business owners are responding to the needs of our community by making sure essential businesses stay open, while adapting to COVID-19 restrictions. We reached out to ask local businesses to update us on their status. Here is a list of those that replied and let us know how they are currently doing business. While this is in no way a full list of all the open businesses in our community, we encourage you to reach out to your favorite local retailers and organizations to see their circumstances during this time. And please feel free to let us know about those, so we can add them to our online list.

We’ve also listed some community organizations assisting those in need. If you are in a position to give back, the Ocala/Marion County Community Foundation is maintaining a list of the needs of local
nonprofit organizations at

We know Ocala’s generosity and resiliency will ensure we weather and recover from these unprecedented times, together. If you would like to be added to our online article or would like to update your information please click HERE or email
