PNA “Moving Forward” Initiative

Tools for Pennsylvania Newspapers

As the summer months are upon us and Pennsylvania is reopening, consumers are eager to shop, dine, be active and entertained, and reconnect with friends in a responsible manner once again.  

To generate more advertising revenue and assist retailers and service providers promote their businesses, PNA members are encouraged to launch a local “moving forward” initiative to help bring revenue back to the communities they serve. Advertisers can promote special offers, and provide important information to consumers about safety protocols, updated hours of operation and online shopping or curbside pickup and more, through a variety of product options that may include: 

  • Open for Business, Going Green or Shop Local Special Section
