City Launches Economic Recovery Initiatives
Recovery Mesquite Event
Set for Saturday, May 30
at Town East Mall
The Mesquite community is beginning to turn the corner from crisis to recovery due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Recovery Mesquite - Forward & Onward” activity will be another step in turning that corner.

On May 30, from 10 - 11 a.m., at Town East Mall, 2063 Town East Mall, Mesquite, TX 75150, the public is invited to participate in a reverse parade from their vehicles to thank Mesquite’s service heroes, donate non-perishable food or financial contributions to the community’s social service agencies and then afterwards, shop at the mall as well as other local stores and restaurants in the retail area. Recovery Mesquite will be located near the main entrance of the mall, on the west side parking lot adjacent to the Interstate 635 service road.

Shop Mesquite Promotes Shopping at Locally Owned Businesses
Shop Local. Dine Local. Buy Local.

Those are the messages the City of Mesquite is using with its new “Shop Mesquite” campaign to encourage their residents to spend their money locally at stores and restaurants within Mesquite.
The campaign coincides with Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s plans regarding the reopening of Texas businesses during the COVID-19 crisis.

City Manager Cliff Keheley said, “We have an enormous responsibility to our local businesses to do all we can to get them going again. The more successful they can be, the more profitable they will become. A ‘vibrant economy’ is one the City Council’s top strategic goals and our Shop Mesquite campaign will help energize our local businesses.”
