Minuteman Press of Flemington is helping the local economy “bounce back” from COVID-19 with free advertising on a website designed to reconnect businesses and customers.
“Bounce Back Flemington is our way of giving back,” said Jason Jacobus, owner of Minuteman Press.
“My mission is to stimulate our economy and sustain employees’ families by making it easy for customers to intentionally buy local,” the 20-year Readington resident added.
Local businesses and non-profit organizations complete an online form where they can upload their logo, promote an offer, or describe their services. Consumers then access the front-facing site as one-stop directory for shopping local.
Jacobus will take care of promoting the site and plans to keep it active, especially after the pandemic has passed.
Local Businesses Already on Board
“As a local business working to stay open and do our part to help the medical community and public with supplies, we appreciate Jason’s Bounce Back program that encourages us all to ‘shop local,’” said Marty Resnick, co-owner of Flemington Department Store.
“We are grateful to be a part of this initiative and look forward to supporting fellow local businesses. Participating in Bounce Back Flemington will help us reach new customers and reconnect with old customers by letting them know we remain open for business,” said office manager Stacy Blake of Frenchtown-based Active Air Conditioning and Heating.
“We have a lot of very loyal customers who have also become our friends,” said Nancy Saunders, co-owner of Saunders Jewelry in Flemington.
“Supporting small local business is now more important than ever. . . Bounce Back Flemington can help us all do exactly that,” Saunders added.
In addition to his efforts supporting the business community, Jacobus is also committed to supporting local schools. The father of three Readington Middle School students is donating $5 to the RMS booster club for every RMS graduation lawn sign sold. His goal is to raise enough money to cover the cost of baseball uniforms for the next school year.
Business owners can visit Bounce Back Flemington to create their free listing, get a free safety poster, and access discounted pricing on related products such as COVID-19-specific signage and decals.
