FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

METROCARD BLACK HISTORY PROMOTION 

Discounts & Special Offers at participating stores on Fordham Road

BRONX, NEW YORK – Through the Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID) membership with NYC & Company, the City’s tourism council, we come across numerous promotions and events that attract tourists and shoppers. We would like to announce a joint effort with the MTA New York City Transit, and we are proud to introduce a Metrocard Black History Promotion. This is a discount program for people who display their Metrocards at the time of purchases at participating stores throughout New York City from February 1-March 31, 2007.

The MetroCard Black History Campaign will be promoted in the following ways:

* MTA SubTalk subway advertising

* MTA Take-One brochures distributed at various subway locations

* Participating business listings, including their special offer information on the web at www.fordhamroadbid.org and www.mta.info

Twenty (20) Fordham Road BID businesses have enrolled in this program and they will have an opportunity to boost traffic and generate customer interest through marketing to millions of subway and bus riders.

"Black History Month gives us an opportunity to celebrate the rich history of African Americans across the nation and state. Now, thanks to this MetroCard Black History campaign, New Yorkers can celebrate with savings as they shop right here in the Bronx. I applaud the Fordham Road BID and the MTA on this wonderful collaborative effort," notes NYC Councilman Joel Rivera of the 15th Council District in the Bronx.

Commenting on the benefits of this program, Frank Mariella, store manager of Levitz Furniture at 2480 Grand Concourse, noted that their entire corporation is happy to support the Fordham Road BID and its Black History Month promotion. “This is a great way to connect with the Bronx community and to promote our business and offer discounts to those people who use their Metrocard during this special Black History Month campaign,” said Mariella.

Special thanks To NYC & Company, MTA New York City Transit and Metrocard.
