A MESSAGE TO MAIN STREET MEMBERS

APRIL 6, 2020

We hope you are continuing to stay safe and healthy through this challenging time. As a reminder, our physical office location is closed; however, we’ve implemented a remote work policy for our team and we’re actively working to serve you and our community. If you’d like to contact Main Street team, please contact us via email at info@pasoroblesdowntown.org. For your convenience and to avoid confusion, below is a Main Street E-News Outreach update with an accompanying schedule for your reference. If you have an Easter promotion or special, we invite you to send your Easter promotion to us and we’ll include it in this week’s Business Updates and in our Easter Virtual Event promotions.

E-NEWS OUTREACH – SCHEDULE & UPDATE

As a reminder, all businesses and organizations wishing to update the community on changes of their services, hours of operation, delivery and take-out offerings and news; Main Street continues to distribute all business updates via email, website and social media. Please forward your information to Main Street to info@pasoroblesdowntown.org, so we can update our community with the latest updates.

Thank you to all those business owners, for you reaching out to us with your business updates. We look forward to continuing to help promote your products and/or services in support of our downtown businesses. Our sincere apology to those businesses’ updates that weren’t in our previous update. So, to better serve you and our community, we have created the following schedule for Main Street’s E-News outreach:

MEMBER E-FLYERS: Every month we’ll be continuing to share our monthly member e-flyers with the community at no cost; therefore, please send us your promotional e-flyer by the 25th of the month and we’ll send out on the 1st of the following month.

DOWNTOWN BUSINESS NEWS: Every Tuesday, we’ll be sending out our Downtown Business News Updates; therefore, please send your updates to us by the Sunday prior to scheduled release on Tuesday.

HOP TO IT! – A VIRTUAL EASTER EGG HUNT

As you also may recall, we mentioned that Main Street is rolling out a new website, virtual downtown events and tours; therefore, we’d like to announce our first virtual downtown event!

Even though our community is unable to come together to visit the Easter Bunny in the Downtown City Park this year, we can still come together in our new virtual Easter Egg Hunt with the Easter Bunny leading the way! With the assistance from their parents, children can join Main Street’s online live video watch party, and help The Easter Bunny hunt for eggs! As a thank you for the kids’ help, he’s offered to deliver a candy egg to each one of their front doors/porches after the hunt! Main Street’s live stream watch party with open chat is scheduled at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 11th! Visit Main Street’s Facebook page for event details.

EASTER PROMOTION – SUPPORT BUSINESSES
Thus far, we’re receiving a great amount of response of gratitude and excitement from the parents and their children in our community, for making it possible to continue to bring our community together.

Main Street welcomes you to participate and/or share your Easter specials/promotions with us, so we can help promote your business, as we promote our Hop to It! A Virtual Easter Egg Hunt. If you’re interested in promoting your products and/or participating (distribution of coupons, candy, etc.), please email Gina Grieb, Director of Marketing and Events, at gina@pasoroblesdowntown.org (asap). Due to the unexpected circumstances due to Covid-19, future planning of this event wasn’t in our deck of cards; however, future events will be announced well in advance. Thank you.
