Since bars and restaurants are temporarily banned from providing dine-in service across the St. Louis region, many businesses are scrambling to adjust to a rapidly changing environment in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
In response, Christina Weaver and Megan Rohall of the Women’s Creative, an entrepreneurial collective, and Jordan Bauer of the Instagram account STLouisGram and the St. Louis guide and coupon book, Experience Booklet, joined forces to create a Facebook group called #314Together to bring local business and customers together again.
Part of a larger, and upcoming, movement called “The Together Movement,” #314Together has over 7,000 members and the group has become a hub for business around the St. Louis region to buy and sell goods to customers, or help out others in this time of struggle and uncertainty.
On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, Weaver and Bauer will join host Sarah Fenske to talk about what inspired them to form the group, the response from the community and their plans to help businesses navigate through this time of uncertainty.
