TAMPA (FOX 13) - Shop Gandy! is an initiative to promote shopping on Gandy Boulevard during an upcoming construction project.
By the first of the year, construction will begin to extend the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway to the Gandy Bridge. The expressway extension will come right down the middle of Gandy Boulevard in the median.
In hopes of lessening the impact to local businesses, the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority has teamed up with the Chambers of Commerce in the area to promote shopping during the construction.
The campaign’s launch party kicks off on Tuesday at 81Brewing Company at 5:30 p.m. to introduce businesses to the campaign. It will also be an opportunity to meet the area’s Chamber of Commerce leaders and members.
