What's open in the Northshire? Journal website features database of local businesses
What's open? It's what everyone wants to know and a common question heard throughout the area.
What's Open, a new feature on the Manchester Journal's website — www.manchesterjournal.com — is a place where Northshire residents can connect with useful information about the essential businesses that are helping us all through the coronavirus pandemic.
Easy to use, whether you're a reader looking for a place to grab dinner or a restaurant looking for a free way to broadcast your hours of operation, What's Open offers a homepage ticker at the top of www.manchesterjournal.com, so you can't miss it. It's also available for viewing on Journal local news pages and on our coronavirus update page.
Readers can choose what kind of service they're looking for in a clickable menu, and then scan the results for a desired option.
Businesses can click "Add My Business," and after a few prompts, your enterprise will be listed among the many essential services that are operating in Bennington County. Don't forget to include all pertinent contact information in your entry.
If yours is a business that has remote only appointments, or has partial hours or if you're closed, What's Open can help you and your customers, too. There are many different states of operation that you can include in your listing.
If your business wants to include special offers, or upgrade your listing to a featured slot, there are a couple of inexpensive options to pump up your presence with elements such as maps, images, extended publication online, as well as inclusion in a listing in print. Just follow the prompts.
If you're a business that is seeking to sponsor the entire What's Open listing, we have opportunities for that, too.
Visit www.manchesterjournal.com to find your next plumber, takeout meal or home-heating oil provider. And if you're a merchant, visit our website to begin your free listing right now. Or just go straight to www.manchesterjournal.com/whatsopen.
