City uses platform to connect residents to ThingsThatAreOpen
AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – The City of Airdrie is connecting residents to businesses that are still open during the COVID-19 pandemic through an online portal called airdrie.thingsthatareopen.com.
Many Airdrie businesses have been required to significantly adjust their operations to remain open during the pandemic. The City of Airdrie is using airdrie.thingsthatareopen.com as a centralized directory for all licensed businesses in Airdrie, while also offering residents an easy way of finding a way to support local businesses for their goods or service needs.
Registration to the site is free to local businesses, who also have the opportunity to share revised hours of operations or any special offers they are providing the community.
"As we strive to find creative solutions to support businesses, while we are diligently practicing social distancing, we have collaborated with the Airdrie Chamber to find airdrie.thingsthatareopen.com. This is an easy to search platform to meet the immediate needs of enabling our business community to communicate their current availability and safe practices during the COVID-19 response phase," says Tourism Development Officer, Economic Development, Shauna Quinn. “We all look forward to when we can start to shift into a recovery and resiliency mode, and share all re-openings with our community.”
As of today, over 100 businesses have already signed up to the site, with more joining as they learn more about this free opportunity.
