Help us help you! Watch our CEO, Jim Dantona share how your business can best stay connected with us.
Supporting our local businesses, especially those that rely heavily on in-person interactions is more important than ever. We encourage you to consider ways that you and your organization might safely and responsibly assist one another. Here are some suggestions for ways you can support the businesses you love.
We strongly encourage anyone in the City of SLO to join in on the Open SLO Program that allows you to move your operations outside. Businesses can activate private parking lots, sidewalks and some public streets in new and inventive ways. If you’re not in the City of SLO, your City might have a similar program and you should reach out to them to see what your options are.
