‘Virtual’ First Friday planned


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

People can’t gather in downtown stores or eateries for the time being, but MainStreet Roswell is promoting a “virtual” First Friday for April.

It is urging people to buy online from local merchants or to order take out or delivery from local restaurants or cafes on April 3.

“Now more than ever, we need to shop local and support our small businesses,” said Kathy Lay, executive director of MainStreet Roswell.

Typically the First Friday events coordinated by MainStreet Roswell offer music, entertainment, food trailers, arts and crafts, and other attractions to bring shoppers to the downtown area. Business owners also often have special hours and special sales or promotions.

Now people are being encouraged this Friday to visit retailers’ websites or social media pages to purchase items or gift certificates. They also are asked to order food and beverages for pick-up or delivery.
