NEW ORLEANS (press release) – My Hood Exchange (MHE), the first local online marketplace, introduces a solution to better facilitate the exchange of everyday goods and services within New Orleans communities. This new neighborhood one-stop shop offers everything from home essentials to art, décor, food, and fashion.

Recent events highlight the importance of having quick, affordable, and easy ways to order goods shipped direct to the customer’s doorstep. The beauty of a shared global economy and the disruption caused by COVID-19 show the vulnerability of large supply chains that have forced communities to become self-reliant.

MHE provides a safe and secure platform for neighbors to buy, sell, donate, and rent goods and services vital to community resilience and self-sufficiency. Geared towards both individuals and businesses, the site offers a wide range of products, including electronics, health and beauty, home goods, games, toys, and tools.

“As a New Orleans native, I value our tight community and recognize the needs of our potential buyers and sellers,” said Co-founder Courtney Ordone. “MHE provides the unique opportunity to safely exchange goods with trusted neighbors and keep those profits in the community.”

MHE offers the added convenience of facilitating all transactions and arranging pick-up and delivery, to help promote independent commerce. Opportunities exist for buyers, sellers, and delivery drivers to get involved during this time of economic uncertainty.

How Does it Work? 

  • Seller creates a free profile and posts pictures of goods and services on MyHoodExchange.com.
  • Goods are available online for thousands of local customers to purchase.
  • Buyer and seller enjoy a safe and secure way to exchange money on the MHE website.
  • MHE driver picks up locally purchased item and delivers it directly to the buyer’s doorstep in 48 hours or less.
