A Facebook page has been established to assist area businesses that are currently shutdown due to the state’s COVID-19 restrictions. Jaci Sprague is the director of business and community relations at Greater Mankato Growth. She says the page is entitled Greater Mankato Area Take Out, Delivery and Business Options.

“This page is for any business to share what they’ve got going on,” said Sprague. “The goal of the page is to support and drive consumerism and to help the local economy.”

Sprague says the page was created back in March at the beginning of the shutdown and continues to climb in interaction.
