DOWNTOWN KAMLOOPS BIA
Open With Care
A campaign to help local businesses as they open safely in Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan!
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
The ‘Open with Care’ campaign is part of a strategy supported by BIA’s throughout the province intended to inspire businesses to open safely and is designed for organizations within the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association area.
Throughout Phase 2 of the provincial strategy, we will see restaurants, cafes, pubs, retail sector, office-based worksites, art galleries and more re-opening with care throughout our business community. We are excited to see our Downtown vibrant again.
While we are extremely excited that Downtown Kamloops is finally getting back to business, we understand that consumers may be hesitant to go back to their previous behaviour. BIA’s throughout the province is introducing ‘Open with Care’ campaigns as an initiative intended to inspire businesses to re-open in a safe, healthy, and compliant manner, and support consumer confidence. Businesses in the Downtown Kamloops are taking responsible steps and following WorkSafeBC regulations to ensure their employees’ health and safety.
It’s crucial for our business leaders to communicate with your customers to reassure them that it’s safe to do business with you.
And for our consumers, when you visit our Downtown, you do so with confidence knowing that responsible steps have been taken to ensure your health and safety.
Through this Campaign we want to communicate:
- WorkSafe BC Protocols followed by all businesses creating a safe atmosphere
- Support local businesses in line with #ykastrong support local campaign
- Downtown is resilient, alive and cares about its customers
- Share a consistent message across the City and Province of BC
- Prepare the public to be “good consumers”; to shop, live, play, eat, art, with care
- Provide our members with the tools to assist them to ‘Open With Care’
