Are you a local business owner, or looking to support local businesses in town? Patch is committed to supporting local businesses in the communities we cover that may be struggling due to the coronavirus outbreak. So we’ve created a go-to resource page to help navigate these uncertain times:
We’ll be updating this page regularly with new information and tips for local businesses. Here are a few of the resources you’ll find:
- Is your business open or closed? Let neighbors know by adding your business to Patch’s local open-or-closed directory for your town.
- Learn how to post classifieds and virtual events on Patch. For the time being, we’ve made it free to promote your classified or event in your home community (and it’s still easy to extend your promotion to nearby towns if you choose).
- Get tips on communicating with local customers using Patch’s Neighbor Posts section.
- Find links to small business loan applications and other resources available now.
Please check back in the coming weeks, as we’ll be making updates to this resource guide in response to the unfolding situation.
Stay safe, from all of us at Patch.
Alison Bernstein, CEO
