ALPENA, Mich.— The Alpena Downtown Development Authority Board is getting the word out about a virtual shopping event featuring local merchants. Seven downtown business owners will have the opportunity to go live on their Facebook pages, showing off store items and giving onlookers a virtual tour of their facility.
The DDA is providing marketing features and a tentative schedule for the event. The event will begin at 3:30pm Thursday May 14th and end around 7pm.
DDA Marketing and Outreach Coordinator Kingsli Kraft says, “Businesses are being hit hard and this is another way to support them.” To see the schedule of the shopping event, visit the Downtown Alpena Facebook page.
