With COVID-19 posing challenges for Brunswick businesses, the City of Brunswick Economic Development Commission will be working to ensure our local businesses are informed and supported during this difficult time. You will find links to important resources that will aid you in keeping your businesses healthy and safe.
The city of Brunswick and Brunswick Main Street have put together a page for small business resources that will be updated during the pandemic. You can find it here: https://brunswickmd.gov/index.asp?SEC=9CFF6141-4F6B-4BA8-AB8E-AA117BB266D5&Type=B_BASIC
If your business has already implemented special measures, such as curbside pick-up, delivery, gift cards or other options, reach out to us by replying to this email. The EDC will publicize your business’s efforts via social media and other channels.
Lastly, keep an eye on the Brunswick Main Street’s and EDC’s Facebook pages, which will be regularly updated to reflect news and policy changes resulting from COVID-19. If your businesses could provide us with any updated information that could be added to the Brunswick Main Street blog, that would be greatly appreciated.
