We started the OPENIN Project to identify, support and celebrate the business owners who have been able to stay open or re-open during this COVID-19 Pandemic, the resulting Economic Crisis, and the Social and Political tensions gripping our country.

Once we get OpenInMaryland.com up and running smoothly, we will quickly launch OpenInVirginia.com and OpenInTheDistrict.com using the same approach. All three will be represented in the parent site DMVThriving.com once the pandemic is past and the focus shifts from surviving to thriving. We hope you join us and support our local businesses.
