About Perkasie Marketplace
The Future is Local and Online
Everyone will remember 2020 as the year that changed how we do business. In the blink of an eye, businesses everywhere had to find new ways to stay open. While empty downtown sidewalks exposed dark storefronts throughout normally thriving local economies, thousands of small business owners worked tirelessly to survive and come back strong.
Now that we know what’s possible, let’s build a thriving business marketplace: Local and Online
