SOMERVILLE, NJ - The Downtown Somerville Alliance has launched its new “Somerville at Home” website, a digital resource dedicated to promoting the small businesses of downtown Somerville during the coronavirus pandemic.
The website – www.somervilleathome.com - went live on Friday, April 10.
“Downtowns are a critical element of New Jersey’s economic well-being,” said Natalie Pineiro, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance. “We know the economic impact of the coronavirus will be immense, and it is the responsibility of district management corporations like the DSA. to ensure that we are doing everything we can to keep our family of small businesses on the map during these difficult times.”
The website not only has information about restaurants and eateries serving up takeout, delivery and curbside pick-up options, but also contains direct links to retail businesses offering online shopping and virtual experiences.
“Social distancing doesn’t mean you have to forego the staples of downtown Somerville,” Pineiro said. “The Somerville at Home site even features videos from your favorite businesses with tips, recipes and activities that will bring us into the comfort of your home.”
The website will be updated frequently to ensure the most current and accurate information on all things related to downtown.
And while Pineiro and the rest of Downtown Somerville are anxiously awaiting the day when it can be “business as usual,” they are committed to staying connected with their customers via this new site and their social media platforms which feature challenges, contests and special content to transform “social distancing” into physical distancing and social connectedness.
