MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (May 18, 2017) – Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie called on the Business and Tourism Office staff to create a campaign to help Mount Pleasant businesses weather the impact of the Wando River Bridge closure on their operations. The “Negate the Wait” campaign will offer alternatives to waiting in traffic for residents and visitors alike. It will push daily content on all social media channels and on its Experience Mount Pleasant website.
“In addition to creating traffic management efficiencies like the ramp modification we just launched yesterday on the Ravenel Bridge; we are looking at ways to help our businesses increase foot traffic in their stores,” said Mayor Haynie. “We understand that Mount Pleasant businesses help give our community its unique sense of place. It is important to ramp up our support during this trying time.”
“We stand ready to help businesses market their products and events,” said Business& Tourism Manager Amy Livingston. “We invite you to contact the Business and Tourism Office with information about your special event, and we will share it on our social media platforms. Let us know how we can best help you ease your stressors and burdens.”
To have your specials and events featured, tag Experience Mount Pleasant on Facebook or Instagram (ExperienceMP) and invite us to co-host your event on Facebook.
