An update from Brad Brown : As businesses are now re-opening, we have aggregated the best deals and discounts in New Rochelle to encourage spending in the City. We have done this using an intuitive interface that allows visitors to find the right deals for their needs and enable them to filter down to locally-owned businesses. New Rochelle United does not charge either the participating business or the customer for this service. We see this initiative as a way to give back to our community in a time of great need. Through this service, customers get a welcomed price break and businesses get needed revenue.
We will raise awareness about these deals via online ads, social media and traditional advertising. Funding for operations and advertising will come from me and others who believe it is a good way to help support the local economy.
We continue to enable gift card sales on our website in addition to listing deals. We also make it easy for visitors to ‘like’ or recommend a local businesses on social media platforms so people can still help the community with time and effort rather than money.
It is easy to sign up new businesses for deals and gift cards. And we soon will have a team of Iona college student volunteers helping us all semester. Businesses or people suggesting local businesses to contact can email usat firstname.lastname@example.org.
As another aside, my company has raised over $18,000 for businesses! We are Called to do Better!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
