Dutchess County Consumer Expo

Dutchess County NY Consumer Expo Poughkeepsie Galleria

The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce is presenting the best local products and services to the public during the second annual one-day-only Think Local First Consumer Expo on Saturday, August 17 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. inside the Poughkeepsie Galleria.  Joe Daily from 92.1 LITE FM will be on hand to emcee the event, select vendors will be raffling off prizes throughout the day, and anyone who donates a new, unused item to the Adopt-A-Student Back To School Supply Drive will be entered into an exclusive drawing for the day’s grand prize.

At tables spread throughout the Galleria’s lower level, vendors who exemplify the values of Think Local First, meaning those that commit to purchasing locally, hiring local people, and giving back to the local community, will display their top consumer offerings and speak face-to-face with shoppers.  Many will be offering complimentary consultations or discounts on future purchases.  There is no admission fee or cost of any kind to browse the tables at the Think Local First Consumer Expo.  For complete information and to see a list of the local companies participating, visit  The Poughkeepsie Galleria, Orange County Trust Company and MVP Health Care proudly sponsor this event.
