Merchant Partner of the Week
Every week we spotlight a member of the CCRA Merchant Partner ‘Deals & Discounts’ Program, which helps local Mom and Pop businesses get back on their post-pandemic feet by providing complimentary valuable advertising and exposure by encouraging support from CCRA’s highly-engaged (and growing) membership. This week we feature the NEW Merchant Partner Excursions from the Square.
NEW Merchant Partner Says Get Up and GO!

CCRA is both proud and delighted to introduce our newest Merchant Partner, Rittenhouse Square’s Excursions from the Square.

Not just any travel outfit, Excursions is singularly unique in that it focuses on museums, architecture, history and the performing arts. Offering trips for both groups and individuals, destinations include the New York Botanical Garden, a Hudson Valley art tour and the Berkshires. The long hot summer is nearly over; book an excursion now! (CCRA members receive a 10% discount on a one-day trip and a $25 discount on extended trips.)
