Metuchen Savings Bank, in collaboration with the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce, will host Metuchen Cares: an Economic Forum for local businesses on Thursday, July 16, 2009 from 8:00 am to 9:30 am at The Forum Theatre Cultural Arts Center at 314 Main Street, downtown Metuchen.


Metuchen Savings Bank has engaged the JGSC Group to offer the Community Insights ™ program for retail businesses, restaurants and commercial property owners in the Borough of Metuchen. Their featured speaker, Joseph Getz, has spent 25 years helping some of the nation's most successful retail developers achieve that status.  Over the course of his career, Joe has pioneered programs to gauge shoppers' perceptions, define consumers' wants and needs, and discover untapped opportunity in retail shopping centers and downtown neighborhoods.

Lorraine Mulligan, Vice President of Business Development for Metuchen Savings said, "Metuchen Savings recognizes the value of a traditional downtown.  We want to help our customers with practical solutions to stabilize our downtown economy today and to ensure that we can compete with planned development in neighboring communities tomorrow."


David Glasofer, Metuchen Chamber President and owner of Image Up Photography on Metuchen's Main Street said, "Economic conditions make running a small business more challenging than ever." Mulligan said, "Metuchen Savings Bank and the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce are doing everything possible to give our businesses the tools they need not only to survive but also to thrive in these tough times."


The forum will focus on three specific areas:

·  Techniques, Tips & Tools for Individual Businesses

·  Leveraging Budgets with Co-op Marketing

·  10 Things You Need to Know About Your Downtown Economy
