A Minuteman Press branch in Turnersville, New Jersey has been helping local businesses reopen following the COVID-19 lockdown.
The owner of the printing franchise unit, Erik Schwartz, has managed his business for 12 years now, and is keen to give back to the community around him. He was pleased to be able to use his own resources to help local businesses build themselves back up again and open their doors to the public safely.
Erik’s Minuteman Press branch has been providing nearby companies with PPE, such as face masks and hand sanitiser, as well as products to encourage social distancing. The business is also able to create coronavirus information posters, floor graphics and safety shields.
“The number one thing we have been doing throughout the pandemic is that we are printing and distributing COVID-19 safety posters and signs for free. We believe that our community comes first and it’s important for everyone to remain safe.”
The Minuteman Press unit is even offering business owners the chance to market their companies free of charge on the community website, Bounce Back Turnersville. Organisations in the local area can get in touch with Minuteman Press and provide a piece of text. The printing franchise can then build an advert with the business’s logo attached and publish it online for free.
“We’ve had a very favourable response to all of our efforts to help others during this critical time including the Bounce Back website. We have special offers on the website from businesses ranging from restaurants, roofing, and solar energy to auto repair and healthcare.”
As Erik concluded, all this hard work has given the Minuteman Press unit the chance to watch neighbouring businesses succeed while it starts welcoming customers back itself:
“We had a good month in June and it’s great to see more local businesses reopening. As they reopen, we make sure they know we are here to help them in any way we can.”
