HELP SUPPORT LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND WIN A CHANCE TO WIN A RESTAURANT GIFT CARD FROM THE BLOOMFIELD CHAMBER

THE BLOOMFIELD ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION ANNOUNCES

Bloomfield Eats Local – To Win Local  -- Bloomfield Community Called to Support Bloomfield Restaurants

BLOOMFIELD, CONNECTICUT April 6, 2020  - The Bloomfield Economic Development Commission in partnership with the Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce and the Bloomfield Messenger is launching a campaign called Bloomfield Eats Local – To Win Local and is asking community members to show their Bloomfield Pride by supporting local restaurants and eateries by ordering takeout/curbside pick-up and then promoting their favorite eateries on social media.

The purpose of Bloomfield Eats Local – To Win Local is to get residents and businesses out to help restaurants in Bloomfield stay in business during this time of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Due to restrictions on dining in restaurants, many restaurant owners and employees are fighting to keep their restaurants in operation and to create the needed cash flow to pay their staff and bills.

Bloomfield Eats Local – To Win Local will highlight restaurants and eateries throughout Bloomfield, some of which have become community institutions for years, while others have recently opened.  We’re calling on our citizens to help our family-owned firms keep the lights on by promoting their takeout/curbside options.  This effort starts on April 6th and runs through April 30th.

It’s easy to show support.  Community members spend at least $15 per transaction (for a total of $30) at two (2) different Bloomfield restaurants, then they submit pictures or scans of their receipts to info@bloomfieldchamber.org to be eligible for a drawing for one (1) of 10 $25-restaurant gift cards. The Town of Bloomfield’s Economic Development Office will draw ten entries for gift cards that keep you fueled and help our businesses serving up excellence!

“Bloomfield is a community of families, and families support each other. During this public health emergency, our Bloomfield family can support our small businesses and show one another that Bloomfield is in this together”, stated Mayor Suzette DeBeatham-Brown.

Community members enjoying takeout from Bloomfield businesses are encouraged to share their support and pictures through social media with the Twitter hashtag - #BEatsLocaltoWin.

“Now is the time to show our support for Bloomfield businesses, let’s all help keep those businesses up and running to support our neighbors for the long-term. We can show that we truly are Blooming in Bloomfield” - blooming with support and pride for our local businesses”, added Director of Economic Development José Giner.

The Town of Bloomfield, the Bloomfield Economic Development Commission, the Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce and the Bloomfield Messenger thank those members of our community that are hard at work every day to keep essential stores and services in operation. Please respect individual business precautions and local policy guidelines on social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our community, workers and families safe.
