MobileNOW! Partners with City of Bethlehem to Support Small Business Saturday11/21/2016 11:57:00PM EST
MobileNOW!, the global technology innovator with the world’s most flexible and user-friendly mobile payment solution for parking, has joined its customer, the City of Bethlehem, PA, to support Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday, founded by the U.S. Small Business Administration in 2011, continues to be widely celebrated in November by local patrons around the country.
On November 26, customers using the MobileNOW! app in Bethlehem’s historic Arts and Shopping District will receive up to three FREE hours’ parking* in any three-hour metered on-street space.
“When you support small business, you’re supporting the community—everything small business does to support your community,” said Kevin Livingston, Executive Director, Bethlehem Parking Authority. “On behalf of the Bethlehem Parking Authority, we are honored to give back and incentivize folks to support our great small businesses in the Arts and Shopping District.”
‘Get Downtown Bethlehem’ is Bethlehem’s Downtown Business Association’s program to highlight and support all that the “Christmas City” has to offer—from hospitality, dining and shopping to arts, entertainment and festivals. The program includes ‘Get the Parking’, which has information for the most convenient ways to park and enjoy activities more accessibly.
“Bethlehem is an amazing city with a lot to offer, and we are excited to help our customers support small business this holiday season,” said John Oglesby, MobileNOW! President and CEO. “The MobileNOW! app is the fastest, most convenient way to pay for parking. Customers enjoy being able to extend their parking sessions remotely without having to run back to a physical meter—this comes in very handy during special events, busy holiday shopping and inclement weather conditions.”
*Customers must use the MobileNOW! app to receive free parking.
