BRINGING NEW POST-COVID-19 TRAFFIC TO NUTLEY
In order to pull the workers and students from the ON3 (formerly Hoffmann-La Roche) campus into Nutley, the Nutley Chamber of Commerce is investing in a “ON3 Gateway to Nutley Project” to benefit our members. The Chamber has purchased 2,500 “Love Nutley, Shop Nutley” reusable shopping bags, which will be distributed to the businesses and schools at ON3, along with a coupon book containing Chamber members’ ON3-specific coupons. There will be no cost to Chamber members to be included in the booklet.
