The City of Beaumont and Beaumont Chamber of Commerce are working together to help support local businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic. Local businesses have been busy adapting to continue to serve residents, while keeping them safe.

The #OpeninBeaumont campaign is part of the efforts by the City of Beaumont and the Chamber to ensure local businesses remain resilient during this unprecedented event. Local businesses employ hundreds of Beaumont residents and give back to the community by supporting the arts, athletics and charitable organizations. If residents are able, please continue to support your neighbours, friends and family members during this difficult time.

How does #OpeninBeaumont work?

It’s free to participate in the campaign. Join in by using #OpeninBeaumont in your social posts and other marketing materials!
