Updated Oct 16, 2020

Mobile Sales Vans are rolling out starting September 1 throughout the five boroughs and Westchester. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the schedule has been modified. For everyone’s safety, you must wear a face covering and maintain a safe social distance. Until further notice, we will not be handling any cash or credit/debit card transactions. However, we will be able to transfer value from one card to another.
