Milford, PA: The historic town of Milford was hit hard by the storm on Friday, June 26, 2009. All of the Milford businesses were without power for almost a full day or more, many are just beginning to reopen their doors. The food establishments on the main streets as well as the outer areas, such as the Historic Mill, were especially impacted, as enormous amounts of fresh food, such as meats, produce and ice cream, had to be discarded. “The revenue loss of a summer weekend for our local businesses is really devastating in these tough economic times,” stated Danielle Jordan, Executive Director of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce. Because a thriving business community affects all of us who live here, the Chamber of Commerce is reaching out to the public for help. Jordan encouraged, “Our local businesses need the local citizen’s support. They need your help. Please come to town; shop, have a wonderful meal or take someone special out for an ice cream treat.” You can make a difference. We look forward to seeing you around town!
