The city of Chandler launched a new tool called Shop Chandler, which is aimed at helping businesses promote their current offerings, such as delivery and takeout options or hiring notices, as the COVID-19 outbreak has forced businesses to get creative and pivot to new ways of servicing residents.

The tool, available at https://arcg.is/04zDjW, is designed such that businesses can submit their information; the tool then populates a page that residents can easily browse.


Businesses need to complete a brief survey to be included on the Shop Chandler webmap, according to the city. Once they submit the survey, their information will be automatically uploaded.

"Businesses both small and large are the backbone of our community, and right now, they need our support," Mayor Kevin Hartke told Community Impact Newspaper. "If you own a business, please provide your current offerings, including online services, specials, curbside pick-p and job opportunities. I encourage Chandler residents to use this tool and support your favorite local businesses and even try out new ones. Kudos to our economic development team for creating this tool to help connect businesses and customers."
