The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ is here to support members. We’ll be providing updates here and in the MEMO enewsletter regarding programs and supports for businesses as they develop. If you are a downtown Winnipeg business and don’t currently subscribe to the MEMO but would like to receive the communication, please email email@example.com.
To our valued Downtown Winnipeg BIZ members: Cash, clarity and continuity are all critical at this time. Our goal is to support you right now and help you prepare for the coming weeks and months. We want to ensure you are set-up for success when downtown is ready to rebound and our city gets to the other side of the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you have made the tough decision to close temporarily or reduce your hours. Others are trying to find ways to work from home, support clients and come up with safe and innovative ways to keep afloat. We understand how difficult this is.
While we may be the experts on downtown, we sure don’t have all the answers during these uncertain times. The well-being and safety of members, employees, and residents remains our priority. Our focus is to get you the information you need, keep our downtown clean and safe, and be here when you need us. Please feel free to reach out any time: 204-958-4640 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
