EOBA Hosts First Time Ever East Orange Business Crawl on October 2, 2021
East Orange Business Association (EOBA) hosts the First Annual East Orange Business Crawl experience for local businesses and residents.
The "crawl" encouraged East Orange residents to travel from store to store and stop in each to browse, test products, perhaps enjoy some adult beverages, and in the process, discover there are small businesses that aren't big boxes out on the by-pass.
The event featured 26 stops and included businesses in each of the five wards of East Orange. The Business Crawl began at East Orange City Hall with registration at 1:00 p.m. Residents were given a complimentary "I Crawl for East Orange Business" tee-shirt and an event passport, detailing the business locations to visit around the city. Residents who had their passports "stamped" returned to City Hall at 5:30 p.m. for the prize giveaway drawings provided by local businesses.
