The Morgantown Area Partnership is launching a new ‘Gift Card Stimulus Program’ for local restaurants in order to help them during the financially burdensome times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Russell Rogerson. MAP’s president and chief executive officer, they had a soft launch starting April 6 but the real launch will be Monday, April 20, and they will have 10 businesses participating. The idea, Rogerson said, is to add on as many local restaurants as possible in order to invest in local restaurant locations going through operational changes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
