Local merchants invited to ShopMenloPark demoAn earlier version of this story had the wrong time for this meeting. The correct time is 8 a.m.
Representatives of ShopMenloPark.com will explain the free website to members of the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce Downtown Group at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, at the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church Social Hall behind Ace Hardware, 700B Santa Cruz Ave.
ShopMenloPark.com is a business directory hosted by the Almanac, and supported by the Chamber of Commerce, Hometown Peninsula, and the city of Menlo Park. More than 400 local businesses have signed up and can now take advantage of a wide variety of web tools to promote their businesses. The ShopMenloPark team will illustrate how the site works and will be available to answer questions.
Dexter Chow, of Cheeky Monkey Toys, said the group also will discuss holiday promotion ideas and hear reports from City Council member John Boyle and other city officials. For questions, contact the Chamber at 325-2818.
