PATERSON, NJ – The Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders has launched a new interactive mapping tool to help local businesses attract customers as they continue their road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Open For Business Map allows these businesses to share information on their operational status and services, and provides users with an easy way to find information on a variety of local businesses, including operating hours, pickup and delivery options, and even where to access PPE supplies and installation services.
“This mapping application is an innovative way to allow our residents to have easier access to information on the services being offered in their local neighborhood, and additionally, allows our local businesses to inform residents that they are starting to open back up for business,” stated Freeholder Director Sandi Lazzara.
The mapping tool includes a brief questionnaire for businesses to provide information such as current hours of operation, type of business, customer services and contact information. In addition to providing information to the public through the online map, businesses who respond will receive promotional support through a Passaic County tourism representative and See Passaic County social media posts.
“Local businesses not only provide important services, but they also play an integral part in bringing growth and boosting the local economy. This creates room for expanded services and job opportunities,” added Freeholder Director Lazzara. “We encourage residents to share the map with friends, family, neighbors, and favorite businesses, and as always, support local businesses for their daily needs.”
