We're Open!
Now that Montgomery County has entered into Phase 1 of recovery, we want to help our members who have reopened spread the word.

We will be hand delivering " Yes, We're Open " signs to our members who are partially reopening, fully reopening, or have been open and have any new operating procedures.

We would also love to snap a picture or short video to post on our social media.

Alternatively, you can download a PDF version of the sign and create your own post on social media and hang it in your window. Be sure to tag us in your posts so that we can share it on our channels!

Please email staff@greaterbethesdachamber.org if you would like us to deliver a sign to you once you begin to reopen.
