Businesses Pivot to Stay Active
Curbside pick-up, virtual events and online shopping are just a few of the strategies Merchantville's small businesses are using to succeed during this pandemic. Owners of our new taquería - La Guadalupana Mexican Restaurant - Fausto and Francisca Medina, celebrated Cinco De Mayo by offering a traditional chicken recipe with fresh watermelon for take out. Jeannie Francis, owner of Spirit To Sole Connection, is still blending teas and making all natural body products for curb side pick up or online shipping. The Blue Monkey Tavern menu features regular favs plus wine, beer and cocktail kits to go. They expect to be prettier than ever when they reopen thanks to Merchantville’s own local artisans Dan Shotwell and Scott DiSimone - wait 'til you see!. Saleemah Smith, owner of A Milli Little Thing, creates all natural body products available for curbside pick-up or online shipping. And, Custom Travel Services owner, Georgiann Jaworskyj, invites you to take a virtual Caribbean vacation on May 7th at 7:00 p.m. to learn all about Sandals and Beaches Resorts.
