---- — To the editor:
Cities and towns across the country are continuously trying to think of ways to promote their local economies. Why? Because a thriving local economy is the foundation for a successful community. It is with this sentiment in mind that Align Credit Union and Century 21 McLennan & Co. have once again teamed up with the City of Methuen in kicking off Methuen’s second annual Restaurant Week which is running until Feb. 1.
From full-service restaurants, to bakeries, pubs, delis, and ice cream shops, the food service industry is an indispensible piece of Methuen’s business community. Whether they are providing jobs to middle class families, offering part-time positions to students working their way through school, or hiring seniors living on limited incomes, Methuen’s food service industry is an important part of our city’s economy.
Through our work at Align Credit Union and Century 21 McLennan & Co., we see first-hand the benefits of having a vibrant local economy. Encouraging local investment in Methuen businesses is an important step in strengthening our City’s business community -- and the best way to move in this direction is to support our local restaurants, pubs, bakeries and eateries.
Restaurant Week offers the opportunity for restaurants to introduce residents to many new and existing promotions -- and it creates that extra bit of encouragement for our residents to go out and re-acquaint themselves with Methuen’s great diversity of establishments. For more information on business offering great promotions during Restaurant Week, please visit www.MethuenRestaurantWeek.com. And on behalf of Align Credit Union and Century 21 McLennan & Co., we thank you for supporting Methuen’s local businesses!
