The Morro Bay Chamber of Commerce reports that the Downtown Shop, Sip, and Stroll event held on April 13 was the best event yet of this special off-season series. It was a hit for the 125 attendees and ten participating downtown businesses that reported positive feedback to the Chamber. One downtown retailer reported a doubling of their sales after 4 p.m., who also recruits local musicians to set up along the strolling route,
“We are so proud of this event and I am so proud of our team for putting in the work to make it meaningful for business owners,” said Chamber Chairperson, Ray Riordan.
Morro Bay in Bloom volunteers helped by providing a welcoming and safe environment for the Downtown event, and the Morro Bay Dragon Boat Association will do the same for the Sip and Stroll on the waterfront on April 27. Chamber CEO Erica Crawford said that partnering with non-profits on this event series highlights the good work that these organizations are doing in the community, adding, “It’s another way that the Morro Bay Chamber works to champion a strong local community.”
The next Waterfront Shop, Sip, and, Stroll event is on Thursday, April 27. Tickets are still available and include a custom wine glass and branded tote plus a map of participating businesses. For more information and to preregister for $5 off, go to morrochamber.org.
