From the Ulster County Chamber:
Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan has proclaimed this Saturday, March 28th, as ‘Shop Ulster Saturday,’ in a joint effort with the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Locally owned small businesses are the lifeblood of our Ulster County economy and it is especially important that we show them our support during the COVID-19 crisis. Even though their front doors are closed to shoppers, their virtual doors are wide open. Go online this Saturday and purchase a gift card from one of our many great local stores, shops and restaurants and then use that card later in the year or give it away as a gift for a birthday, anniversary or even to use during the holidays.
To local small businesses and all chamber members in retail, be prepared to respond to online shoppers this Saturday. Now is the time to roll out your virtual red carpets and welcome online shoppers, either through special incentives, BOGOs, or anyway you can make it easier for shoppers to buy your goods, products or services.
