Main Street to launch retail, restaurant guide

TUPELO – Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association on Saturday is launching a retail and restaurant electronic guide.
The monthly e-guide, Get Downtown 1st, will be in e-mail form similar to the organization’s 2-year-old Get Downtown e-newsletter. The weekly e-newsletter has more than 1,200 subscribers, according to Megan McCarty, DTMSA’s marketing and public relations specialist.
McCarty said the e-guide will allow downtown restaurants and merchants to feature a monthly special. It will be e-mailed on the first of every month.
The weekly e-newsletter is geared more at informing people what’s going on downtown, McCarty said, with event information such as live music, plays and art exhibitions.
