Hello Everyone and Welcome to the President’s Message Corner! On behalf of the entire Medford Business Association Board, I would like to say Happy New Year and thank you for a successful 2017. I want to personally thank the 2017 Executive Board for their hard work and dedication throughout the year and especially to Bill Stauts in his role as President. During the 2017 year we once again had 2 very successful events; The Art, Wine & Music Festival in conjunction with the classic car show which was held in June and the Oktoberfest which was held in September. These events could not have taken place without the hard work and dedication of the workers and volunteers, the sponsors, the participants, and of course the Medford Community. We will once again host these events in 2018, so be sure to check out the Event page for more information.
I want to take a moment to remind everyone about the importance of shopping local and using your local services. If you like having a community with businesses and services, than it is important to utilize them to keep them here. Sometimes it might be easier to go online, but it also takes away from the face to face interaction with each other. Shopping at your local store is not just a purchase, it’s an experience. Enjoying a stroll on the avenue, walking with your family from store to store, meeting the local business owners, it’s an opportunity to create lasting memories and meet new people. This year, with all the many resolutions you made, try adding just one more; commit to shopping local more often.

…June 10th 2018 was the date and while there may have been some clouds in the sky… there were plenty of smiling faces among the thousands of attendees enjoying the festivities! Fine artist works, colorful crafts, local wines, craft beer, and good food was on hand as several South Jersey Wineries and Medfords local breweries were serving up their finest while local bands played live music throughout the afternoon.
The Medford Lakes Corvette Club rolled out classic automobiles on South Main St. Musical groups were located on porches up and down Main Street, providing live music from rock to pop to bluegrass and folk. An estimated 9,000 visitors attended the festival which has grown each of the past several years to be a major area event. This year, by popular demand, the festival was expanded further along North Main Street so that the entire area ran from the Medford Library at Allen & Main St. to Rt 70.
Presented by ShopRite of Medford, this signature event is brought to you each year by The Medford Business Association, The Medford Arts Center, The Lakes Corvette Club, and in cooperation with The Township of Medford, Medford Police, and Medford Fire & EMS. We wish to thank all volunteers who worked to make this day possible!

If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!
For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy. When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.
How we all benefit by shopping Burlington County:
◆ Keep Burlington County's economy strong and growing.
◆ Embrace local businesses, which create 80% of new jobs and often provide better wages and benefits
◆ Save time and money and protect the environment. Shopping locally saves travel time and gas money
◆ Get great products and services at competitive prices at any of Burlington County's 8,000 one-of-a-kind, independent businesses
◆ Create a sense of community. Community groups get 350% more support from local business owners than non-locally owned businesses.
