Staying #PassyunkStrong Through COVID-19


Keep track of how to support businesses that are currently open or offering online sales, gift cards, and more. We're truly grateful for your support at this challenging time

East Passyunk Avenue is truly grateful to our neighbors, friends, and family at this challenging time. Together we are #PassyunkStrong and are proud to be part of a community that comes together to support one another in times of need.

Many of our businesses are operating as essential services, and taking extra measures to ensure the safety of the general public’s health and welfare. Even more businesses beyond those are able to provide online sales, gift cards, or other means of support through these trying times.

We want to be there for you now, and once this unprecedented event is over. The business community of East Passyunk Avenue is thankful for your support, and we look forward to being open under normal circumstances again soon.

In addition to supporting our local businesses directly, you can make your voice be heard by contacting national, state and local leaders. Let them know how important small businesses are to you. Ask for state and federal funding to be directed to small businesses. Let them know that you want independent business to be part of the stimulus plan, as well as push for debt forgiveness, and changes to insurance coverage which will be critical in the coming months.
