State Launches “Buy for Tomorrow” Website that Pairs Shoppers with Businesses

Website Offers Sales to Help New Mexico Business Owners Through Covid-19 Closures



SANTA FE, N.M. – The New Mexico Economic Development Department has launched a website that pairs shoppers with products and services in a “Buy for Tomorrow Today” campaign to help sustain businesses through the COVID-19 health emergency.

The “Buy for Tomorrow Today” website (www.BuyNMLocal.com) is another way for people to support New Mexico businesses during the emergency closures. The site offers direct access to individual websites where purchases can be finalized for products or services now, by delivery or take-out, or when the business reopens.

“We know New Mexicans have loyalty to local businesses and those businesses need our support now more than ever. We hope this website becomes one of many tools that can help businesses through this crisis,” Economic Development Secretary Alicia J. Keyes said.

The website includes a registration link for businesses who want to participate. Shoppers can sort retailers by region to find a store near them. The State of New Mexico is not a party to the transactions.

Some of the participating businesses include Iconik Coffee (Santa Fe); TJ’s Diner (Farmington); Gila Bike and Hike and Bluebird Running Co. (Las Cruces).

Many businesses on the site are also offering discounts or additional value-added services with a purchase on the Buy Tomorrow website. New businesses are being added to the site daily, so check back often to find your favorite local retailer.

Business can enroll by going to the site and clicking on the upper tab, "Register Your Business."

New Mexico MainStreet is also offering a free webinar (registration required) at 1:3o- p.m. on Thursday, April 2 for businesses to learn about PayPal setup and other e-commerce resources. This webinar aims to help businesses in NM by promoting e-commerce on the Buy for Tomorrow Today website. You can learn more and register to attend the webinar HERE.

“We know New Mexicans have loyalty to local businesses and they need our support now more than ever. We hope this website becomes one of many tools that can help support businesses through this crisis.”

How Big a Check Will You Get?

The Senate relief bill that passed last night contains plenty of aid for folks impacted by the pandemic's economic hit. Adults who earned up to $75,000 ($150,000 for married couples filing jointly) last year will get $1,200. That payment is lower for singles making between $75,000 and $100,000 ($150,000 to $200,000 for couples), while earners above those thresholds get nothing. Parents of kids 16 and under get another $500 per child. Adult dependents will not receive a payment.

Payments are based on 2019 tax returns, or 2018 returns if you haven't filed for 2019 yet. Those who did not earn enough to file a tax return still qualify, but their money will likely be delayed as the IRS turns to other records, such as Social Security records. These folks could speed things up by filing a 2019 return quickly. Taxpayers whose bank accounts are already on file with the IRS will get their money fastest, in about three weeks. Otherwise, it will likely take a month or more.

The IRS will mail notices telling taxpayers how much and where the money was sent, thus allowing recipients to challenge or correct any errors.

Other tax-related breaks: Savers not yet of retirement age can withdraw up to $100,000 from retirement funds without penalty. Required minimum distributions from investment accounts for folks age 72 and up are waived temporarily, too.

The New Mexico Economic Development Department has created a program to assist businesses seeking emergency loans or lines of credit to deal with negative impacts from COVID-19. TODAY, March 17, at 1 pm they will be hosting a webinar about this program for lenders, bankers and others. Information follows.

COVID-19 Response: Business Loan Guarantee Program

Webinar: March 17, 2020


The New Mexico Economic Development Department (NMEDD) has created a program to assist businesses seeking emergency loans or lines of credit to deal with negative economic impacts from COVID-19. NMEDD can guarantee a portion of a loan or line of credit up to 80% of the principal or $50,000. Loan proceeds are flexible and can be used for (and not limited to) the following: working capital, inventory, and payroll. They invite lenders, banks, Economic Development Organizations, and others to tune in to this information session for updates on the program as well as other resources on how to help your customers affected by COVID-19.


Spaces are limited to the first 100 attendees, so login early. If you are unable to access the presentation, you can call in and join by phone. A recording of this webinar will be available shortly after its conclusion on Tuesday. Information on how to register (required) is in the attached flyer.


Additionally, NMEDD and the Governor’s Office are receiving numerous inquiries from companies seeking financial assistance. NMEDD is compiling a live list of resources and special assistance programs for businesses negatively impacted by COVID-19 on the COVID-19 Response webpage.


For example, this was noted in the Albuquerque Business Journal over the weekend. WaFd is offering small business lines of credit of up to $200,000 interest free for 90 days to businesses affected by COVID-19. WaFd Bank is committing up to $100 million in lines of credit for this effort. WaFd Bank will expedite processing for lines of credit up to $30,000 to existing and new creditworthy clients in their regional market who have been in operation at least two years and can show a 10 percent loss in revenue due to the impact of COVID-19. This is the type of information NMEDD would like to list.


Please let NMEDD know immediately if your organization is providing any type of relief, resources or special programs for business owners affected by COVID-19 during this time. Feel free to share any programs outside of your organization also.
Send all information to Johanna Nelson, Strategic Program Development Coordinator, NMEDD at [email protected]
