Hudson, NY – Columbia County Tourism and the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Columbia County Economic Development Corporation, are pleased to announce a county-wide Shop Local Initiative to drive more sales from patrons in the county to local businesses in our communities as part of Columbia Comeback.
The tri-agency partnership is working together to maintain a growing list of businesses offering take-out, delivery, online shopping and curbside pick-up in alignment with state guidelines. The aim of the initiative is to offset the loss of in-person revenue through increased online sales, take out, delivery, and curbside pick-up channels, which many businesses are utilizing to stay afloat during this unprecedented time.
Along with the use of local media and social media, the message will be on signs throughout the County indicating Columbia County Comeback and to Shop Local.
