MobileNOW! and City of Bethlehem Support Small Business Saturday11/07/2018 08:02:05PM EST
MobileNOW!, the global technology innovator with the world’s most flexible and user-friendly mobile payment platform for parking, continues their joint effort with the Bethlehem Parking Authority to support Small Business Saturday each year.
Small Business Saturday is an annual event held the Saturday following Thanksgiving. In 2017, an estimated 108 million consumers reported shopping or dining at local independently-owned businesses on Small Business Saturday — generating roughly $12 billion in reported spend.1
“On behalf of the Bethlehem Parking Authority, we are pleased to give back to our local patrons so they can enjoy dining and shopping with our community’s small businesses,” said Kevin Livingston, Executive Director, Bethlehem Parking Authority.
On Saturday, November 24, residents and visitors shopping in downtown Bethlehem, PA will receive their first three hours free when parking at any onstreet metered space using the free MobileNOW! app.
“When you ‘shop small,’ you’re supporting the uniqueness of your community, local jobs, money for your local economy…and a dream,” said Lee Whittemore, MobileNOW! Vice President of Operations. “So, we are proud to partner with the Bethlehem Parking Authority to support Small Business Saturday.”
