HACKENSACK, NJ – The Hackensack Regional Chamber of Commerce, Hackensack Main Street Business Alliance and Fairleigh Dickinson University are partnering up to encourage the campus community to shop and dine locally.

The three entities are in the process of creating a discount program with local business and vendors that would be accessible to students and faculty, according to an announcement by the Hackensack Main Street Business Alliance.

More than 6,000 students are enrolled at the school's local campus, which straddles the Teaneck-Hackensack border.
