The City has recently announced the completion of the new and improved Shop College Park website.
After launching in July 2008, the Shop College Park website quickly became known as the place to find useful business information and the latest events around town. After nearly 5 years in operation and with over 10,000 visits per month, the City decided it was time to make major changes and provide a more user-friendly experience.
The changes include a fresh look, a mobile site (coming very soon), integrated social media, improved maps, and the ability to filter shops by cuisine, district, happy hour, locally-owned & independent, and other options.
Also, the City has created a photo contest for people to enter shots of their favorite businesses or attractions around the city and to provide us with a reason why they love College Park. The top entries will be featured in the rotating slideshow on the front page of the new website.
The deadline for entries and voting is February 22nd. To enter the contest or vote on entries, participants must “Like” Shop College Park on Facebook. If someone does not have a Facebook account, they can also email me and I’ll add the entry for them.
