Business owners can get construction-survival tips at Thursday workshop

Spokane city officials are hosting an ““Open For Business: Making the Best of Rough Road Construction” workshop on Thursday, giving small business owners a way to cope with major road disruptions due this summer.

The workshop, 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the City Council Chambers in City Hall, is a partnership between the City and the Greater Spokane Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).  PRSA members are volunteering to help interested businesses. 
 
The free workshop covers what to expect once construction begins, how to deal with customer communications during construction disruption, and how to use promotions to offset the impact.
 
The workshop will be recorded for later viewing on City Cable Channel 5.

Here’s how to get to Valley businesses

A major road construction project in Spokane Valley will shut down the busy intersection of Sprague Avenue and Sullivan Road for what’s expected to be three weeks, beginning July 19.

Traffic will be re-routed on Broadway, Conklin, Fourth and Adams.

It’ll be more difficult to get to businesses in the construction zone, but they will be open. If you want to get to the Walgreens on the southeast corner, for example, you’ll have to approach by Sullivan from the south or Sprague from the east. You won’t be able to cross the intersection. Just keep that in mind and you’ll be fine.
