Newmarket Chamber Supports
The Chamber has introduced a number of measures to support businesses feeling the impact of COVID-19.
Business Assistance Concierge (BAC)
In partnership with the Town of Newmarket, we have launched the Business Assistance Concierge (BAC) program to ensure local businesses have access to support and resources from all levels of government. If you own a small or medium-sized business and need assistance navigating the impacts of COVID-19 on your operation, the Business Assistance Concierge (BAC) program can help. Visit newmarket.ca/BAC for more info and to set up an appointment with a BAC team member.
Hanging Cough Shields
The Chamber has partnered with CPG Aerospace to make hanging cough shields available to our members.
Made from Lexan, polycarbonate resin thermoplastic, the sheets are lightweight, impact-resistant and available in both clear as well as tinted. They are predrilled for easy installation (hardware and installation not included) and are available in the following sizes:
32” x 48” for $50
48 x 48” for $80
Contact us if you’re interested in purchasing or viewing them.
Member Deals through FanSaves
The Chamber has teamed up with FanSaves to relaunch our Member Deals program in an easy-to-use digital format. Now members have the ability to offer both member exclusive deals as well as public discounts and promotions.
FanSaves is a digital couponing and loyalty platform. Available via a website and app, it offers users discounts, deals and promotions both online and in-store for public and member-only use, with every redemption being captured, allowing for customer analytics and true ROI to be tracked.
The FanSaves program is free for businesses participating in it through the Chamber (including non-members) until September. After that, it will become exclusively a membership program. Upon the anniversary of a membership, if you're interested in staying on the program there will be a $15 annual fee associated with it to help offset the cost.
