ATTENTION: North Franklin Township Businesses
Due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 restrictions, many businesses have altered their way of doing business and/or their days/hours of operation. Some now offer curb-side service, delivery, or online orders delivered by mail/UPS. It can be difficult for consumers to find updated information
North Franklin Township would like to help. We have placed a “North Franklin Businesses – What’s new?” page on our website listing North Franklin businesses that are currently offering services. This will give our residents an easy way to find local places to get takeout, order groceries and gardening supplies, or hire a contractor. We can list your business contact information, hours of operation, and add a link to your website, a Facebook page, or even a scan of your current menu or sale flyer.
If you are a business owner/manager and would like to be listed, please contact Erin Dinch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-228-3330, ext. 4. Please provide any information that you would like to have in your listing – services offered, contact info, hours of operation and any links/attachments such as your website link, Facebook page, or a copy of a flier or menu. If sending an email, please list “OPEN FOR BUSINESS” on the subject line.
Also, if you have a business that has been required to close, we can list it under “Local Businesses that are currently closed (but need your business in the future)” as a way to promote your business during the months that follow reopening. We can list your business name, contact information and the types of products/services that you provide. Just use the contact information shown above but put “CURRENTLY CLOSED” as the subject line.
If you know a business owner for whom we may not have contact information, please pass this information on to them. We would like all businesses in North Franklin to have the opportunity to participate. If there is anything else we can do to help you during this difficult time, please let us know.
