MOUNT CARMEL — Local businesses are the heart of our community. We understand the challenges our local businesses face during a pandemic. Many have had to completely close and others have only been able to be partially open. We understand because the Mount Carmel Register has also been impacted. But we believe in this community and in its ability to recover.

To help jump start that effort, The Register has put together a $500,000 advertising stimulus fund for local businesses. The fund will be used to match dollar for dollar to their advertising purchase in Register products, including print, on-line, and custom marketing. The matching fund will help every local business restart and reconnect to their customers. It will double advertising with us.

The Register is positioned to help every local business reconnect to their customers and to reach out to new customers. We invite every local business to apply for the matching funds on-line at More details about the program are on-line. The program will run through June 30. Register marketing specialists are ready to help each business prepare a restart marketing campaign.

“Most local businesses here in the community have been impacted by Covid-19 in one way or another,” said Publisher Courtney Shuttle. “Closures, restrictions, layoffs, and customers sheltering in place have all played a part in sudden unexpected revenue reductions. We want to help businesses in our community bounce back as quickly as possible, because the stronger our local businesses are, the stronger our community is as a whole. This advertising stimulus program is designed to do just that.”
