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.
