“Millburn businesses offer a breadth of products and services that people who live and work in our community want, but consumers don’t always know what is available right here in our downtown,” says Gillian Moritz of Downtown Millburn.  “Close.By/Millburn brings together everything Millburn merchants have to offer and delivers it directly to consumers in an exciting digital experience.  Downtown Millburn is pleased to be able to help its merchants compete in the digital age with this exciting technology.”

“Small businesses compete every day with large, e-commerce players and shopping malls to capture consumers’ attention,” notes David Ingerman, CEO and founder of Placecodes, Inc., the company that developed the Close.By platform.  “Our technology brings all the local businesses that make Millburn unique directly to the digital channels consumers prefer to use today.  We are excited to be working with Downtown Millburn which is leading the way in using innovative tools to support the Millburn business community.”
