Visit Mesa Rallies Main Street and Asks Locals To Consider Downtown Mesa

Visit Mesa is sounding a rallying cry to help support, and in some instances save, local businesses up and down Main Street during the COVID-19 crisis.

(MESA, Ariz.) – The destination marketing arm of the city is reminding residents that many businesses have transitioned to take-out and curbside service while they can still offer these options, with some businesses remaining open but with amended hours of operation.

“Every destination across America is being called to save the heart of their city and for Mesa, it’s Main Street,” said Visit Mesa President and CEO Marc Garcia. “We have worked quickly to update all our local business listings and changes in operation on our website and social media channels and in that process we have developed a one-stop resource site, www.SupportMesaNow.com, that shares those cafes, bars, restaurants and retail shops that are equipped to offer no-contact options for our healthy citizens.”

Visit Mesa is not encouraging anyone violate the quarantine if they are sick or feel symptoms, but instead sharing a resource tool that makes it easier to know which Mesa businesses are still operating to-go service at their establishments. There are many options to consider especially in-between resources being stocked at local grocery and warehouse stores.

“Visit Mesa is aware this effort is a temporary one while our Governor and city leaders consider additional measures to stop the spread of the virus,” said Garcia. “We are listening to these businesses and we have the resources to share their messages. Even if this effort only serves as a reminder to all to support the small business owner, we aren’t sitting on our hands. Visit Mesa is here for you.”
