Shop Online and Local With These Deals While Staying Safe at Home


Skip the Amazon order and stock up on entertainment and essentials from local businesses instead.

Online shopping is the name of the game in the Hudson Valley (and entire United States) right now. With everyone encouraged so stay home and promote social distancing, the easiest way to stock up on home essentials is by clicking “add to cart.” Yet while browsing for literally anything you can think of on Amazon has a convenient appeal, it’s largely detrimental for local businesses that need community support now more than ever.

So what are you waiting for? Close out of that Amazon tab and take a virtual stroll through these Hudson Valley storefronts instead. We rounded up all the local deals on deck to help you #shoplocal and #flattenthecurve.

For food deals, make the most of these delicious discounts and family specials happening throughout the region. Both pages are updated regularly, so check back in to support Hudson Valley businesses.

🔸🔸CLOSING NOTICE🔸🔸 We must do our part to help our community. These words are the reason we decided to open our little store in downtown Albany nearly three years ago. But in the wake of this virus, it’s also the reason we must close our doors for the foreseeable future, until it’s safe to welcome our staff and our beloved customers back in. It breaks our heart to say that as of 3 pm today, the Fort Orange General Store will be closed until further notice. In the meantime, your support is needed. Our staff need paychecks, our rent and utilities need to be paid, and as luck would have it, viruses are an excluded clause under business interruption insurance. So we ask for your support. We’re offering free shipping on online orders of $50 or more with coupon code FREESHIP, and gift cards in any amount ship free with coupon code GIFTCARD. Buy something nice for yourself, or send a care package to someone working long hours or who just needs some cheering up. Visit our online store at www.fortorangegeneralstore.com. Until we can open our doors again, please be well. 🧡
