Reconnect, at the Heart
Well, we’ve certainly seen some things.
Over the last few months, we’ve watched life all around us go from hustle-bustle, to complete and total shutdown, to an optimistic but cautious re-opening. It’s been a ride we’ll never forget!
We’ve also seen some incredible innovation and the unbeatable spirit of the people of this city. We’ve seen you reach out to support one another and find ways to remotely check-up on your neighbours.
These days, it may look a little different downtown, but that same old feeling is still there – and we’re so happy to welcome you back.
You’ll notice some new ways to do biz around here – but don’t worry, you’ll catch on right away. Our downtown businesses are following new health guidelines released by the Provincial government including the mandatory wear of masks in all indoor public spaces, including transit, stores, workplaces and places of worship (effective as of November 6th). Be on the lookout for directional signs and reminders about safety and public health. LEARN MORE
From restaurants and coffee shops to your favourite shopping spots, or place to grab pints with friends, Downtown Regina is the city’s heart and gathering place where everyone feels at home. And it’s the folks that operate downtown businesses who truly make that heartbeat.
Earlier this year we launched our “Reconnect, at the Heart” campaign to highlight local downtown business folks and to encourage you to reconnect with them in all kinds of ways: online, pick up, delivery, and in person (but further apart). We’ve created three online directories to help you with just that:
If you can’t get downtown in-person, there are still things you can do to support downtown businesses:
- Get in touch with local retailers and ask about their online shopping options.
- Buy custom or corporate gifts from retailers who can handle orders over the phone or online.
- If you don’t need anything just now, but still want to support local, buy gift cards as gifts for family and friends or save them to spend later.
- Order takeout or delivery and tip as you would dining in. Or why not buy a gift card to treat someone to a night off from cooking at home?
Look for our campaign information on billboards and buses throughout the city, in your favourite downtown businesses, in public spaces including City Square Plaza, and online on our website and social media. Our ‘Reconnect, at the Heart’ campaign is informative, and heartfelt.
We’re ready to welcome you back downtown, Regina!
So, please, let’s all: reconnect, at the heart.
