During Coronavirus Pandemic South Orange Village Helping Small Businesses Survive with Social Distance Shopping and Live Music 20201117

As we know keeping the doors open is the biggest challenge facing small businesses today during these Corona Virus times. Therefore it’s important that small businesses all over find ways to weather this pandemic as they’re vital to our towns and the nation’s economy.

South Orange Government and South Orange Village Center are leading a charge to help local small business address these challenges. They are giving small business a spotlight and potential customers who have concerns a place to come out and shop in a socially distant and safe environment as we head on into the holidays and colder days of winter.

Now the South Orange Holiday Open Air Market in the center of town has been developed and operational once a week thru Christmas eve. The market will provide the community with great gift options while offering an outdoor, socially-distanced holiday shopping experience. All COVID-19 Guidelines will be strictly implemented and enforced.

The Open Air Holiday Market is being held in the South Orange Sloan Street Parking lot on the following dates and times with some fabulous live music while you shop.
