Retail Advertising
The Media Business Authority and Promotions Committee have been busy with a multimedia advertising campaign to give a boost to retail this holiday season. We encourage business participation in staying open later to take advantage of this advertising push. Look for upcoming ads in Town Talk/County Press, Daily Times, Main Line Today, Xfinity Online, Fig Magazine and online social media channels.
Promotional Support
Are you doing anything special this season? Please send us your details (discounts, promotions, menus, events, hospitality, etc.) and we'll help spread the word via the calendar, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the soon-to-be-updated Media iPhone app.
Also, Media Borough Council has officially approved free parking on Black Friday (Nov. 29) and Small Business Saturday (Nov. 30) throughout Media to assist what we hope will be a busy shopping weekend in Media.
Holiday Business Mixer
Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union in Media will be hosting the Annual Holiday Business Mixer on Thursday, December 12 from 5:30 to 8:30pm. This is a great opportunity to network with your fellow businesses and meet our new Media business owners. All businesses are invited to this evening of holiday spirit, mingling, food, drink, and fun.
