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.
