Relief. Re-Open. Recover.
MetroNorth has developed a three-pronged campaign to assist our members. We are focused on helping our members find financial RELIEF through connecting with resources like grants, loans, deferments, etc. We are focused on helping our members safely and timely RE-OPEN: partnering with the MN Retailers Association on re-opening Main Street retailers, curling the best practices and checklists on health and safety guidelines, etc. We are focused on helping our members RECOVER: providing resources for short and long-term recovery needs - marketing, employee engagement, customer re-acquisition, 'new normal' practices, etc.
