Downtown is Open!
In these trying times when fear and panic grips our communities, we should remember that small businesses are inevitably going to be weighed down by the impact of COVID-19. These are the friendly smiles that greet you every morning with your cup of fresh coffee and your favourite lunch place. These are amazing stores that know your personal style and preferences. They are doing their best to persevere through these difficult times. These individuals are risk-takers that do everything to keep downtown vibrant through all seasons. Downtown Kamloops wants you to know that downtown is open. Social distancing is key and we should do our best to follow these important practices. However, we should try to support the businesses that do so much for the community through various initiatives like sponsoring events, non-profits, and giving back to the Kamloops community. We love and celebrate the local businesses that make Kamloops special. They choose to invest time, money, and their heart into our community and they help to make up a sustainable economy. We are thankful for these businesses! Downtown Kamloops encourages you to think of our local business and to shop local with them when you can during these challenging times. Kamloops let’s help our business community flourish through these times by buying products locally.
