Shop Gandy! Marketing Campaign

Shop Gandy! Launch

Shop Gandy! is a marketing campaign to promote and drive commerce to the businesses along the Gandy corridor before, during, and after the construction of the Selmon Extension. It is a partnership between the South Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce and Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority.

The Selmon Extension will be a 1.9-mile toll lane located in the median of Gandy Boulevard from Dale Mabry Highway to the Gandy Bridge in Tampa. Construction of the Selmon Extension will start in January 2018 and is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2020.

Shop Gandy! partners understand and recognize that construction can be a difficult time for businesses and want to assist the Gandy Boulevard businesses during the building of the Selmon Extension by increasing their exposure in the marketplace.

The regional Chambers of Commerce will participate in the campaign by leveraging their members via newsletters and their social media pages. The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority will also leverage their large social media following and display Shop Gandy! banners on the Selmon Expressway to further encourage those to #ShopLocal and #ShopGandy.

Please participate in our Shop Gandy! Launch Party on Tuesday, September 26th from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm at 81Bay Brewery. The fun, free event is intended to introduce Gandy businesses to the Shop Gandy! marketing campaign and the regional Chambers of Commerce. We have high hopes that Gandy businesses will attend and take part in the marketing campaign designed to help their businesses. All of those who attend will receive campaign promotional items to share with customers, friends, and family! Food and drinks will be provided, please RSVP now at or email [email protected].

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Shop Gandy! launch party!
