South Orange and Maplewood elected officials supported local businesses the best way they could on Shop Small Saturday:
Will their wallets.
Maplewood Mayor Vic DeLuca, Maplewood Committeeman Frank McGehee and South Orange Village President Sheena Collum hit the stores on Saturday, November 25, and posted their retail rampages to social media.
The in-person shopping visits showed the elected officials walking the walk for the #ShopLocalSOMA promotion organized by the Maplewood Village Alliance, Springfield Avenue Partnership, South Orange Village Center Alliance, Maplewood Chamber of Commerce and South Orange Chamber of Commerce. #ShopLocalSOMA asks that local residents pledge to buy at least three gifts from local shops this Holiday season.
