Rockland Business Women's Network is spearheading the county's first-ever online holiday shopping exposition.
News 12 is told the idea came from businesses pivoting to the new normal. The official website is RocklandShopping.com
Businesses like Bach to Rock Music School in Nanuet are participating with major holiday discounts.
“We want to give the gift of music this year. We're doing buy three, get one free - a package of four lessons 25% off,” says site director Jesse Kurtz. “It will apply to any program for any of the ages."
About 40 businesses are on board to participate - including the arts, home organizing and more. Owners interested in joining can visit the official website to pay a $100 fee.
“Local is our thing, we want to support the community,” says Kurtz. “So, when we saw there was a virtual event, we said we want to be part of that."
Susan Farese, of Nanuet Chamber of Commerce, compares the shopping expo to an online street fair.
"When people go to buy the products, it directs them to that website or company website to buy direct from that,” says Farese.
Shoppers looking to support local businesses in the expo can do so beginning Dec. 5 until Dec. 9.
