Cranford named No. 1 downtown in New Jersey

Posted: Updated:

Cranford in Union County has been named the number one downtown in New Jersey by NJ.com for the second year in a row.

NJ.com presented the town with a banner for being the No. 1 downtown in New Jersey following Small Business Saturday.

Many shoppers came to the town this weekend for Small Business Saturday.

The shoppers filled out a shopping passport with stamps from businesses where they bought an item.

The stamps were turned into raffle tickets to win gift baskets.

The Downtown Cranford office also provided a hot chocolate and s'mores bar in Eastman Plaza to celebrate Small Business Saturday and the start of the holiday season.
