Safe Shopping in the Town of Orange

The season of giving is here! Consider giving our local Orange County retailers a little extra support this year, as they’re working harder than ever to stay open and keep their customers safe. Through shopping online to in-store options, you can find holiday gifts and decor for every person on your list without having to leave the Town of Orange.

Holiday Decorations

‘Tis the season to begin decorating for the holidays! The Market at Grelen has sleighs full of Christmas decorations to spruce up your home, and they provide the opportunity to cut down your own tree! When you head into Orange, Grelen Downtown has the most whimsical gifts and curated gift guides for everyone in your life.

If you’re looking to spread holiday cheer, Lacy’s Florist and Flower Cottage offers beautiful and classic centerpieces, bouquets, holly trees, and fresh wreaths - the perfect gift for a loved one.

Online Opportunities

Nothing beats the convenience of online shopping. Businesses like Gibson Auction Inc. have pivoted during the pandemic to provide online auctions, so you can safely bid for items by only lifting a single finger! The online auctions are open to all, but registration is required.

Amid the pandemic, Bound2please Books moved their entire shop online to accommodate bookworms looking for their next great read. While they may have moved online permanently, they’re offering all the same perks the in-person shop did, like special orders, special events, and gently used or brand new books. Take advantage of this local eCommerce site! 

As the expression goes, the best gift keeps on giving, and Edward Jones is your go-to in Orange for your financial needs. Giving the gift of financial literacy might not be on the top of most people’s list, but it’s an excellent investment for the future. While in-person appointments are available, Edward Jones offers secure video conferencing to serve their customers in whatever capacity they need.

Gifts for All

With an ever-changing inventory, Unique to Chic Galleria is a one-of-a-kind liquidation store that tempts residents and visitors alike to stop by to see what’s in stock. From over 32,000 masks to hand sanitizer, they offer plenty of PPE (perfect stocking stuffers!) at a great price.

“It’s going to take all of us working together. We are here to help -- let us know what you need. We are trying to source helpful items. Before you go outside of Orange, try looking locally first!” - Troy Ayers, Owner of Unique to Chic Galleria.

If you're looking for gifts for the females in your life, My Sister's Closet offers trendy, chic consignment pieces at affordable prices. Mask wearing is mandatory and hand sanitizer is provided. They also offer a special 10% discount to those in the Orange School system. Stop by for a personalized shopping experience! 

Providing clean and safe environments, Melrose Antiques & Fine Interiors and D+J Thrift Shop sanitize often and require masks. D+J Thrift Stop sterilizes all incoming items, like their wide variety of books and quality clothing. If you’re unsure of the perfect gift, purchase gift cards to either location so friends and family can pick out their own gift. Customers can even schedule an appointment with Melrose Antiques & Fine Interiors if they’re looking for personalized assistance.

From clothing to furniture, Objects on Main has the perfect gifts for the interior designer in your life! Designing and decorating is their specialty, so whether you’re looking to shop or schedule a design consultation, you won’t be disappointed by their products and service.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one, we ask you to please follow all COVID-19 safety protocols this season, including social distancing, wearing a mask, and washing your hands frequently.
