Cash is NOT King During COVID-19
Malden- COVID-19 has created a cash crisis for many small business owners. Less cash is coming in. The domino effect amplifies. Less cash is going out. But what if cash was NOT the only currency?
Responding to that cash crunch, New England Trade, Inc. (NET), based in Malden, MA and the leading barter exchange in the New England region, announced that they are offering free memberships – traditionally a $295 membership fee - and no fees for six months to any business. Qualified new members will also be granted a minimum $1,000 line of credit.
“We know businesses are hurting. Now is the time to embrace innovative methods to keep the momentum going,” noted Gary Oshry, President of New England Trade, Inc. He explained, “Our barter network of over 1,000 participating businesses allows members to accrue a balance by providing a service and then applying that balance towards the purchase of any of the hundreds of good and services within the network.”
