[ARCHIVED] County Executive Neuhaus urges residents to shop local this holiday season


Goshen, N.Y. – Holiday shopping can be hectic, but it also provides an opportunity support Orange County businesses and the positive impact they have on the community.

Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus urges residents to support local businesses, especially during this very different holiday season. Money spent at local shops, restaurants and stores helps to create successful downtowns and a thriving economy for Orange County.

“Holiday shopping is certainly different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but you can still shop locally online by purchasing gift cards to your favorite stores and restaurants,” Neuhaus said. “The time and money invested in local shops and businesses is well worth the effort. The people who own and operate these establishments are our friends and neighbors and many have faced challenging times during this public health emergency. It behooves us all to patronize local businesses as much as possible those last few weeks of 2020.”
