Chamber of Commerce president Glen Brewer says this allows residents to connect with businesses, attractions, and events during shelter in place.
Other participants in the new campaign are the cities of College Station and Bryan, the Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation, Experience Bryan/College Station, and the Downtown Bryan Association.
Features will include virtual events, details on take-out and delivery options at local restaurants and retail shops, and much more.
The campaign also provides a place for businesses to download and print signs saying “Yes, We’re Open” that can be hung in windows.
