Bear Street Ambassadors have been scheduled seven days a week to help residents and visitors navigate the Bear Street sidewalks, especially when there is a closure at a business entrance.
Maps placed at all Bear Street entrances indicate when and where sidewalk access is closed. Please look for maps at entrances to find the best route to destinations on Bear Street.
Signs at key sidewalk entrances indicate the street-level businesses ahead.
The Bear Street Ambassadors hand maps with promotions of any features or specials at Bear Street services or businesses.
The Ambassadors team encourage all businesses and services to update their open hours on their websites and Google My Business profile, which is the Number 1 tool used by customers.
Paid social media posts this last weekend featured adventure and bicycle rentals. The upcoming paid promotion will feature fashion retailers, including House of Angelica, Last Temptation Vintage, Rocky Mountain Flannel Co., Lole and Defending Awesome.
"We're Open" flags will be attached at three locations on fencing to enhance visibility from the opposite side of the street. These locations will change as routes change and as fencing is moved by the construction crews.
The Website BrandNewBear.ca will be updated with listings for the map and business directory.
