“The Chamber wanted to step in and try to do something to help these businesses generate some revenue so that they could offset the cost of their inventory and their fixed costs that they have not be able to change through the pandemic,” BRCCC President and CEO Michelle Rotellini said. 

This will begin Wednesday with the Blue Magnolia boutique as they will be going live at 7 p.m. on their Facebook page.
