Downtown Penticton Association launches virtual marketplace

DPA virtual marketplace

Downtown Penticton businesses are expanding online stores in order to continue meeting customers’ needs during the COVID-19 crisis, consolidated in a Downtown Penticton Association virtual marketplace.

"We are preparing the first phase of this new online marketplace right now, going live on Friday, April 10,” said Lynn Allin, DPA executive director.

“All downtown businesses and service providers with an online store or that offer sales and service over the telephone or through a virtual platform are invited to participate. The application for businesses is available online.” 

The marketplace will include food and beverage businesses that are open with modified service delivery. 

"We know several producers of craft beer, wine and spirits plus many restaurants are taking orders online or over the phone and have expanded their takeout and delivery options. We want to help customers find these businesses as quickly and easily as possible,” Allin said. 

Once the DPA has successfully added interested downtown businesses to the online marketplace, they plan to reach out to other aligned business organizations like the Chamber of Commerce and Travel Penticton to see if their members might also find value in participating.

"We keep hearing that local residents want to support local businesses. This is one simple way to pair them with our many wonderful businesses that offer exceptional products. We’re all in this together.”

To find the new online marketplace starting Friday, visit downtownpenticton.org.
