OLEAN — The Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce (GOACC) will host the Health Home Fitness Expo beginning this Friday at the Good Times Events Center, 800 E. State St.
The expo is designed to inspire individuals with countless ideas on enhancing their health and fitness, as well as recreational aspirations. Show goers will be able to talk to a number of area experts and learn about home, health, fitness and more — all in one place.
The expo is scheduled for April 22-24 with hours on Friday, 5 to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year’s show will feature no admission cost but encourages all expo goers to enter the basket raffles for $10/sheet. More than 50 items will be raffled off with most products or gift certificates for service from the expo vendors.
The vendors will be located on the main floor as well as the second-floor space, with the elevator available for those needing assistance.
Earlier this month, Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce COO Meme Yanetsko said the show was moved from the William O. Smith Recreation Center arena to Good Times of Olean Events Center due to lower-than-expected vendor sign-ups.
“The Rec Center is the size of an ice skating rink and can maintain 108 booth spaces,” Yanetsko said. “The Good Times Events Center is a great fit for the more than forty vendors our expo has lined up. We have a wide variety of home, sports and fitness/health vendors — it’s a great mix.”
Also expo goers will have an opportunity to attend and learn and make and take. The meeting space in The Point area at Good Times Events Center will be the location for all demos/talks.
Specials at this year’s Expo include Saturday – the first 200 customers to the expo will receive a reusable grocery tote bag courtesy of the Better Business Bureau of Upstate New York; Sunday – the first 100 customers to the expo will receive either a flower pot or a 50 basil pot courtesy of Miller’s Farm Market.
Also, the Cattaraugus County Health Department will have COVID tests available for free to pick up at their booth. GOACC booths will also be selling their chili vessels from their Chili Crawl as a fundraiser for WNY Heroes.
From windows and flooring to hiking, yoga to natural medicine and much more, the Home Show, presented by GOACC and its 44 Corporate Sponsors, is an individual’s all-access pass to home and personal improvements.
