POTSDAM -- Maple Run Emporium, 49 Market St., has launched its website shopping cart and is offering 10 percent off all online purchases during June.

Shoppers will find more than 200 products available at, according to owner Mary Hilton.

Hilton says the site, designed by Keenpixel of Potsdam and hosted by Shopify, is secure to use, easy to navigate, and features a streamlined checkout.

To make purchases, on the Home page customers simply click "Shop Maple Run" to see the categories, select one, and begin adding products to their carts.

To receive the 10 percent discount, at checkout shoppers type in the code "MAPLE."

In addition to New York gourmet and specialty foods, the website also features Maple Run Emporium's line of scented scrubs, candles and body lotions in Maple & Lavender and Maple & Rum, plus the Chef's line of Maple & Rosemary products including a cleaner, dish soap, hand soap, hand cream, and soy candle. The products are handcrafted exclusively for Maple Run by SunFeather Natural Soap Co. of Potsdam. "These products are currently only available at the Market Street shop,” Hilton said.

Also available on is merchandise from other maple-producing states including Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Maine, plus kitchenware from internationally known companies such as J.K. Adams, Bodum, Nordic Ware, and The Culinary Institute of America.

Hilton noted that providing a special offer to launch the shopping cart is not only an incentive to online shoppers but also an opportunity to show Maple Run's appreciation for its customers.
