University City has launched its new website ExploreUCity.com to connect local businesses with customers and residents. The site, which launched on Friday, July 24, will serve as a one-stop-shop for anyone looking to open a business or frequent the existing businesses in the city.
“This has been an exceptionally trying time for businesses in University City,” Mayor Terry Crow said. “We want to do anything we can to support businesses during the pandemic and after.”
The website features a blog, calendar of events and business resources for existing and new businesses. The business directory will connect residents to businesses and give them direct access to restaurants and shops as hours change due to the ongoing pandemic.
“University City is a great place to live, shop, work, and play. This new website will enable people from around the world to explore our wonderful community,” City Manager Gregory Rose said.
The website will be regularly updated to reflect resources for businesses and spotlights on events in University City.
Some listed events on the calendar are:
• “Sit Down & Listen” Bench at Cursed Bikes and Coffee on July 24-27
• Ben Angelly Live Painting Event at Which Wich Superior Sandwiches on July 26
• Blueberry Hill 48th Dart Tournament on September 4-6
