Businesses in Kamloops are teaming up to help each other as the pandemic continues

Local businesses team up

Kamloops business owners are continuing to feel the influences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The hospitality industry has been hit especially hard.

So Pav Moore, General Manager of the locally owned and operated Thompson Hotel on Victoria Street, came up with some new bundle ideas to help business and businesses.

With Spring Break approaching, the Thompson Hotel is offering unique family packages.

In addition, they have launched a "Into the Night" special, a package that appeals to those looking for a different kind of date night. Included in the package is a dance lesson from local studio Let's Move, as well as a $50 gift card to a local restaurant of your choosing.

"It's so important to support the other businesses, because everything is word of mouth," Moore told Castanet Kamloops. "The more businesses backing each other, the more we can open our doors and help create a diverse business flow."

Neighbour, Al Renner, owner of Alchemy Brewing agreed with Moore.

"Anytime we can collaborate with next door we will," Renner said. "Mitchie's Delivery is the service we use and we were one of the first ones on board. I was approached by Tutti and Doordash, but anytime you can keep it local, you got to support the community."
