Helping Businesses Plan for Success
Flemington BID is here to support our member businesses as well as new potential businesses coming to our area. We offer assistance with the Borough to open your doors in a timely fashion, then promote and support your grand opening with a publicized ribbon cutting. Take advantage of our fantastic marketing promotional system that is available for your business to cross promote your specials and offers. As well as some great advertising rates we obtain from our partners. Attend our educational workshops, Morning Brew on topics that pertain to business retention. And get to know your fellow BID members by attending our mix & mingle events.
